In Heavenly, even absolute beginners get to experience the unbelievable views from incredible heights, as the beginners' area is located at the top of the gondola. Once you feel confident enough to venture out by yourself, the California side of the mountain is perfect, with its multitude of gentle green runs. There's also a kids' adventure zone, called Black Bear Hollow, and a beginner progression snow park that's designed to let those freeriding youngsters hone in their skills.
Intermediates really do have free reign at Heavenly, with the majority of runs, on both sides of the mountain, suited to their level. The Californian side offers more of a slow progression from the easy cruising of the long Ridge Run, that starts from the top of the mountain, to more challenging blue runs near the Sky Deck. The more confident intermediates should head over to Nevada as they're find more of a variety of terrain, and lots of wide, long cruises down to the other bases.
Expert skiers and riders can explore the array of back-country terrain and parks across both states. For moguls, head to the Face and Gunbarrel black runs underneath the California base lifts, or climb higher up the mountain for lots of single-diamond runs. Cross the border for excellent gladed areas, to the left of the North Bowl chairlift. The narrow and steep runs in the densely-wooded Mott and Killebrew Canyons are a lot of fun, too.
The Milky Way Bowl is the only wide open bowl in Heavenly, and is located right at the top of the ski area. Other than that, the off-piste is well-hidden. So, if you want to make the most of the untouched powder, we recommend hiring a guide. Advanced skiers who love steep slopes and tree turns should check out the North Bowl.
Snowboarders will relish the two snowparks - Groove and High Roller - with their range of boxes, rails, wedges and jumps. The High Roller is more versatile with its four lines for different abilities. The rest of the mountain is great too, with its varied terrain and powdered tree lines, making it a perfect playground for advanced freeriders and intermediates. However, watch out for the long, flat tracks that link between the different sectors.
