My husband and I decided to take the ride up to the very to of Heavenly mountain. The restaurant on the top was very expensive and overpriced. I did not think the price was worth the experience

This has been the high light of the trip thus far. The mid stop on the way up the mountain has the best view of the lake. All of the staff are accommodating and friendly. From Jo in the gift shop to Kindle taking family...More

Nice was to see the lake and surrounding area. Good photo spots. Lift going to the top of the mountain was closed so didn't get the full experience and unable to hike the area. Worth doing if you have time.

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.

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.

Yes, I believe that it is. I would verify at the lift though as it is a bit of a hike from the top of the lift but there is a boardwalk over to the restaurant.
