America's Best Ski Resorts

Slide 12 of 21

Heavenly, California/Nevada

Why Go: Overlooking Lake Tahoe, Heavenly straddles California and Nevada and boasts 4,800 skiable acres. Although the resort designates nearly half of its terrain as intermediate, some seriously expert challenges can be found on its slopes. Mott and Killebrew Canyons are in-bounds, double-black-diamond-filled areas are reached only through access gates.

Where to Après: Avid skier Traci Des Jardins, an F&W Best New Chef in 1995, serves pappardelle with duck confit and pork tenderloin with white bean cassoulet at Manzanita, a midmountain spot in the Ritz-Carlton Highlands.
