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.

We skied at Heavenly Valley for many years and saw the view from the chair lift. We weren't too impressed when the new gondola went in - especially when we saw the price! But that was some time back, and having some time to kill,...More

The views are spectacular!! Get your James Bond fix by taking this ride....It is pricey (68) but you can't get that view anywhere else and some of the money goes toward preservation of the area. The staff were all very accommodating (one of the the...More
