With 4,800 acres of patrolled terrain and an average annual snowfall of 360 inches, Heavenly boasts something for all levels of skiers and riders. Beginners will enjoy the terrain on the upper mountain where the groomed cruisers offer a perfect opportunity to progress, whilst the more advanced skier should head to the double black diamond chutes of Mott Canyon or the High Roller terrain park. The resort suits intermediate skiers the most as almost half the slopes match this level and the excellent piste grooming makes for a really enjoyable experience.
