Now that the US is due to open to UK travellers on 8th November Lake Tahoe is bringing the fun back with expanded services and shorter wait times in and around the resorts. If you’ve been dreaming about snagging first-chair on a powder day or plan to head-out with the family for a holiday there’s no destination quite like South Lake Tahoe, especially now the boarders are set to open 8th November for UK travellers.

Goodbye mountain reservations! Lifts and gondolas will be back to business as usual with full capacity and no pesky online reservations. You can make a reservation using Heavenly’s Time to Dine reservation service in the Epic Mix app and through onsite QR signage as early as the day before.

Starting in the 2022/23 winter season, Heavenly’s North Bowl lift will be upgraded! The replacement of the existing triple with a high-speed 4-person chair will increase uphill capacity and reduce the wait times at the Stagecoach and Olympic lifts.
So, will you be able to go skiing this winter? Absolutely! If you already know when you want to come up, book the tickets, reserve the days, and get your lodging set so you can start counting down the days until you get here.
