The rumors are true: There actually is a roller coaster on the mountain above Tahoe! Heavenly presents the Ridge Rider Mountain Coaster, a gravity-powered track that whips you through the forest of the High Sierra. It's more than a half-mile of thrills, with a drop of some 300 feet and two different loops. The mountain coaster is just one of the activities at the resort that you don't have to be a skier or boarder to enjoy, and it is a great way to experience the high-altitude landscape and scenery.
