On the Hill: Riding Heavenly's Gondola
  • On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different Lake Tahoe adventure every day.


    Today’s activity: On the Hill: Riding Heavenly’s Gondola.

    About the ride: Not all Lake Tahoe adventures require sweat. A perfect example is the gondola ride at Heavenly Ski Resort. In the summer, the gondola takes you 2.4 miles up the mountain to an observation deck, and then higher to a rock climbing wall, cafe and more. Perfect for all adventure levels, the gondola ride is fun for anyone who loves the lake.

    Today’s weather: Hot today, with a chance of thunderstorms at 30 percent. Looking for temps at 87, and winds about 11mph.  — National Weather Service
