Heavenly

Renowned for its views but chided for tough navigation across its 4,300 acres, Heavenly offers a wealth of terrain. “California Side” features intermediate trees and the legendarily steep moguls of The Face. “Nevada Side” is home to Mott and Killebrew canyons—double-black sidecountry terrain. Heavenly’s two-state format is an asset and a hindrance: “Getting to some runs requires a substantial amount of traversing,” complains one reader. Be advised that Heavenly rewards explorers who get off-piste. First-timers, take a guided tour to find stashes such as Nevada Woods and The Burn. Off mountain, casinos provide action 24/7. Indeed, Heavenly ranks no. 2 in Off-Hill Activities and no. 5 in Après. Part Vegas, part Vail, with a twist of scenic splendor, Heavenly’s a gamble for some but a sure bet for others. —Paul Tolme
