New Year’s Eve at Heavenly 2012

Kick off 2013 the right way with concerts, parties and snow in South Lake Tahoe! Tahoe has been receiving a lot of snow over the past couple weeks, and so far this season Heavenly has received over 11.5 FEET to 16 FEET of snow. Tear up the slopes on your skis and snowboards all weekend long, the conditions have been absolutely incredible! Heavenly has 4704 acres open – the most in California, you can ski/ride between 2 different states, and there’s everything from beginner to double black diamond terrain to choose from. Here’s a list  below of some New Years events going on this weekend, so you can really go all-in at Heavenly. Here, we aim for first chair on the mountain and last call at night. (Maybe you won’t make first chair, but at least you had fun!)

Unbuckle Apres Ski Party
Tahoe’s ultimate apres ski party, Unbuckle, located in the Tamarack Lodge ,will be rocking daily at the top of the Gondola. At Unbuckle, you can sip down half-price drinks, enjoy appetizer specials, dance to the live DJ on our dance floor, take EpicMix pictures with Heavenly Angels and talk about the epic turns you made on the mountain. The party rocks from 3:30p.m. to 5:30p.m. and the Gondola will lead you back to the Heavenly Village.

Now this might be  a good time to change/shower, make a big meal, or enjoy the delicious restaurants in town. South Lake Tahoe has a huge variety of options! Check out some of your dining options here.
