You have had a great day skiing at Heavenly with your friends. Now it is time to kick back and rehash how great the day was with a cold beverage. Heavenly has four different options for après. Try them all out and see which one is best for you!
The California Bar at the California lodge is the home of the face rat après. This bar is like walking into Cheers, because most California locals that ski Heavenly end up at this bar at the end of the day. It features Happy Hour specials from 3:30-5:30 p.m. On the weekends they offer huge nachos to be shared by your whole group.
It also has 6 flat screen TVs so that you can catch all of your favorite sports. If you would rather play bar sports, you have come to the right place. They feature free pool, foosball, and shuffle board. And don’t forget to get your picture taken with the giant Alaskan bear in the middle of the bar.
If you don’t know about the Unbuckle Party at Tamarack Lodge then you don’t know après. Tamarack Lodge features the country’s biggest après scene with 1/2 price drinks and appetizer specials from 3:30-5:30 p.m. daily. On Fridays and Saturdays they kick up the action and add the dancing Heavenly Angels, and a live DJ. If you like clubs and come here to take advantage of the Tahoe night scene, then you are going to want to finish your ski day and start your party night at Unbuckle. Plus, after all that action, you still get the beautiful ride down the Gondola. They’ve also got arguably the best Bloody Mary’s on the mountain too.
Stagecoach Lodge is the home of the Nevada ski locals. The bar may be small in size but it is full of life during après. Stagecoach has half-price specials daily from 3:30-5:30p.m. and a great deck to catch some afternoon sun. Sometimes you can catch live music from a local artist inside the lodge. Stagecoach is known for their specialty sandwiches, including Philly cheese steaks, pastrami sandwiches, and portobello.
Boulder Lodge is another popular spot for the Nevada local. It serves up half-price specials from 3:30-5:30 p.m. On Sundays during the season there is live music on the outdoor deck, so come on over and get your groove on. Boulder has diner style food, with milkshakes, patty melts, chili-cheese dogs and specialty burgers.
