If you have booked a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe, you likely are looking up the variety of activities to do within close proximity. From beaches to hitting the trails, there is truly an endless amount of outdoor adventure available. If you are looking for a family friendly activity that has multiple things to do in one location, head over to the Heavenly Resort. Just because the ski slopes are closed doesn’t mean your only options are hiking, biking and taking photos from the observation deck. In fact, Heavenly Mountain turns into a whole different kind of playground during the summer months. Enter the Epic Discovery Summer. You can do tubing, rope courses, climbing walls, zip lining, a mountain coaster and hiking tours. All with the gorgeous Lake Tahoe views that people come here to see and experience. The best part is that all this day time adventure is within 15 minutes of our vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe.
The Mountain Coaster is cool because it takes away the usual carnival scenery and is replaced with a forest surrounding. It cruises through trees and boulders making this alpine coaster a one of kind experience. Who knew when booking vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe that you would have access to an amusement park experience tucked away in the mountainside?
If the roller coaster experience didn’t satisfy your adrenaline needs, the zip line tour is one of the most popular attractions. There is a variety of aerial bridges and zip lines to choose from with the kiddos zip line being 15 feet off the ground and a bit shorter while there is one that goes 40 mph and over looks Carson Valley.
If you like rope courses, Epic Discovery has a variety of obstacles and courses for every ability and age group. There is an introduction course if you are brand new to this type of experience.
Would it be a true mountain experience if there wasn’t rock climbing? If you were wondering if this was available, it definitely is and it is a world class man made wall! What is amazing about this activity is that if you have someone who wants to try it, while someone else in the group is an expert, there is a route for everyone.
Oh and there is tubing available as well. A 500 ft long hill and you don’t have to be held down by heavy snow clothes. Just your shirt and shorts will do!
Oh and if you have someone in the crew that loves gems and rocks, you can even get a little history on the Gold Rush while “gold panning”.
The best part is that you can take the Scenic Gondola up, which means when you are done with your day of gold mining, zip lining and rock climbing, you have multiple fun ways to continue the day. From live music to a relaxing movie to dinner around a fire pit, the Heavenly Village has a bevvy of things to do before you head back to your car.
