Lake Tahoe Getaways
South Lake Tahoe - Heavenly Gondola
Major developments are continuing to take
shape in South Lake Tahoe. As the city tears down old motels and retail esablishments from the early and mid 1900s and replaces them with new lodges, deluxe hotels and stores. The area ski resorts are updating visitors' opportunities to enjoy the Lake Tahoe scenery, and provide a better skiing experience from the heart of the resort city.
The Park Place development already has changed the
face of the South Lake Tahoe, just east of the Stateline casino area. One
of the major features of the recent ski-from-the-city theme is
the Heavenly Gondola.
The gondola lift, with eight passengers to a car,
takes visitors from the casino area of South Lake
Tahoe/Stateline to the 9,100 foot level of Heavenly. The
ride to the top takes 11 minutes. A hotel, looking like an
old fashioned lakeside lodge and operated by Marriott, is
located next to the gondola station. The gondola operates during winter and summer seasons.
