Shame that the pods are so badly scratched so making photos almost impossible on the journey The way station helps make up for this But the ride is not cheap at $58

I have been up there a few times. Don't remember it being so expensive. We end up decide it doesn't worth it. I think 40 is okay but 64 is really outrageous.

Coming to Tahoe from only 60 miles away should not be this expensive. Its a bit disappointing having to spend this much money to visit our local spots, I wish locals could get better rates. My kids have never seen Tahoe from this angle with...More

The ride up the gondola was amazing!! You cant beat the views and being able to get off at the observation deck is the best!!! Then the ride to the top is fun too!!

The view from the top is amazing and there is a zip-line/ropes course at the top that is pretty fun too. You can hike around and there is a restaurant as well but it is pretty pricey. There is a great selection of restaurants down...More

Pay the $40 and ride up and enjoy the views. Lots of activities at the first Gondola stop for kids and adults. Second stop on the ski lift has the zipline that tops out at 50mph.

The views at the top of Heavenly is great, but we thought the price was on the expensive side for just a small viewing point that you can cover in 10 minutes. The ride up in the gondola can get very warm on a hot...More

I did a lot of research before taking the Gondola Ride for $48/person. All warned you must get off at the first viewing station (stop) as this is the only stop where you can view the lake. The stop has a small gift shop and...More

Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas. Be sure to get off at the first stop viewing overlook as the gondola does not stop there on the return trip down. Take the chair lift to the 10,000 foot elevation for more fantastic views.
