The Gondola Ride at Heavenly Village in Lake Tahoe is a short scenic ride up along the ridge above Heavenly Village Resort. Soak in the beautiful views from their 360 degree gondolas while on your way to great skiing in the winter, or the epic discovery park in the summer.

Half way up the Gondola Ride you can get off for a quick detour to soak in even more amazing views of the Lake Tahoe area at the Observation Deck. There’s a small gift shop here, plus a little cafe style restaurant and a few picnic tables. But the best part is getting a true birds eye view of the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe.
