Out recent trip to Lake Tahoe didn’t work out exactly as we planned. The much anticipated Zip Line has been closed for two years. Then we made it over the pass just ahead of a string or winter storms that left us buried in snow after one clear day. The first thing we did on on our first day was ride the Heavenly Gondola from the heart of South Lake Tahoe up to the top where many ski lifts take skiers to the runs. The ride was great with beautiful panoramas of the beautiful Lake Tahoe basin. We got a bit more sightseeing done that day before the snow came.
This is a video capturing a bit of the exhilaration of the 3,000 foot ride to the top.
