Try your luck in the powder, or at the roulette wheel.

It's all about the trees. And the good news is, in Heavenly there's enough space between them to ski in, out and round about.

Beginners will love the greens around Sky Deck, experts should head to the super steep Canyons, and intermediates can play all over, dropping off the top ridge onto the blues, and carving all the way down the Nevada side of the mountain.

Those who ski in Heavenly, stay in South Lake Tahoe at the bottom of Heavenly gondola. Strange as it sounds, this is a casino town and with it comes a deliciously varied choice of food, from tacos and grills to fresh fish and Indian curry.

It's not your average ski resort, but it's certainly unique...
