The comfortable gondolas start out at the new Marriott resort (under construction) and proceed up the mountain offering you incredible views of Lake Tahoe. Half way up (9123 feet elevation), you can get out at Malcolm's deck which provides you with "views of the Carson Valley to the east, and Desolation Wilderness to the west…not to mention, jaw-dropping shore-to-shore views of Lake Tahoe," to quote the Heavenly web-site.
Continue on up to the summit for excellent hiking and more views of the territory from the backside of the mountain. Advice: bring plenty of water if you plan to do any hiking at the summit. In the summer, it's dry, dusty, and hot! There is only a very small souvenir desk at the observation deck and a refreshment cart at the summit and their beverage selection is very limited.
This is one attraction that should not be missed!!
Note: I just read on the Heavenly web-site that the Gondola is going to be closed for maintenance from May 13 through May 24. Bummer.

The lifts were never too busy; I hardly waited in a line and the runs weren't too crowded for early in the season.
