Heavenly Adventure Peak
Summer at Heavenly Adventure Peak
Enjoy a vacation with the whole family at Heavenly Adventure Peak, located mid Mountain at Heavenly Ski Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Begin your journey with a trip up the mountain in a Heavenly Scenic Gondola Ride located in the Heavenly Village. Take in views that will leave you breathless and snap photos at the Observation Deck, then hit the hiking trails which range from beginner to expert.
Bring water and snacks on your adventure, or take a break at the Tamarack Lodge and Bar 9150. Dine and drink at the top of the Gondola while enjoying the spectacular view of the mountain slopes and Lake Tahoe. Be sure to grab a hat and sunblock for that high altitude sun!
Thrill seekers can experience the excitement of two Heavenly Adventure Peak zip lines. As one of the most popular attractions, be sure to book ahead! The New Hot Shot Zip Line lets you race against 3 others as you travel down a 1,000-foot-long zip line at speeds of 40 MPH. Braver adventures can tackle the Blue Streak Zip Line, with top speeds of 50 MPH and 3,300 feet of zip line. All participants must be between 55-275 lbs and 42 inches tall. No matter which zip line you choose, you’ll see dramatic views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Mountains.
Let loose and test your skills on one of the Adventure Ropes Courses. The Discovery Forest Ropes Course lets you and a friend explore the tree-tops and see the beauty of the National Forest up close. The Boulder Cove Ropes Course offers a more challenging course, with two levels to progress through. All participants can handle the first level, but only skilled adventurers will want to test their limits by progressing to the higher, more difficult level. The Black Bear Ropes Course is the ideal choice for families with young children. These shorter courses make for an easier challenge, conveniently located near the Bear Cave Children’s Ski and Ride School building.
Rope course instructors will give all participants a 20 minute instruction, and they observe the course carefully as you have fun making your way through obstacles that test your abilities as much as your nerves! All rope courses take about 1.5 hours to complete and end with a zip line or a controlled descent. Participants must be at least 42 inches tall, 5 years old, and between 20 and 250 lbs. The Adventure Ropes Courses will give you something to talk about for the rest of your trip.
Skip the heat and take your family to Heavenly Summer Tubing! The 500-foot-long hill boasts a 65 foot vertical drop, but it’s not as scary as it sounds! The ride is straight down and not too fast, but if you need some extra downhill fun ask the attendant to give your tube a spin! No snow needed, this tubing surface is designed to let you slide all summer long. It’s easy to enjoy this ride again and again as you ride back to the top in an enclosed magic carpet.
Climbers prepare to challenge yourselves with Heavenly Adventure Peak’s 25-foot outdoor climbing wall. For new climbers through advanced, the climbing wall lets you experience the excitement of high altitude rock climbing, without the danger! Adults and kids 45 lbs and up can take on the wall any day of the week, weather permitting.
