Heavenly Ski Resort photos

Gal on the Go: Photo Friday from Lake Tahoe’s Heavenly Ski Area

The could not have ordered up a more beautiful day. Truly, we couldn’t see a cloud in the sky when about a dozen SATW members started our ski day at the base of the Heavenly gondola in Heavenly Village, dominated by a Marriott Grand Vacation Club, shops and restaurants (including the super cool ).

Representatives from Heavenly spent the day guiding us on the slopes of this massive resort that sprawls across two states and 4, 800 acres. I have to give huge props to Troy Gier, an incredibly patient ski instructor and all-around awesome guy who was my group’s guide for the day. He’s passionate about skiing and Heavenly, and his enthusiasm for the sport and the slopes was contagious.

Brilliant blue Lake Tahoe — surrounded by white mountain peaks — from 10, 000 feet is an unparalleled view. I snapped a dozen photos of the phenomenal scenery today, but my favorite came from my Blackberry (as if you needed a sign to tell you this was a scenic viewpoint):
