Labor Day Weekend Events in Lake Tahoe

 Heavenly Mountain

It’s time to celebrate the last of summer with a long weekend in Lake Tahoe! And here on the South Shore we have a jam-packed weekend of events to keep you going all weekend long.


Heavenly Sport’s Annual Tent Sale: You may still be sporting shorts and flip flops, but we’ll be making snow in 12 weeks and it’s time to gear up! Save 30-70% off winter gear and summer apparel during the three-day tent sale at Heavenly’s California Main Lodge. Purchase or renew your 2013-2014 Season Pass at the Tent Sale and we’ll sweeten the deal with a coupon for $25 off any purchase of $250 or more during the Tent Sale!

Scenic Gondola Rides: A 2.4 mile ride up in the Heavenly Mountain Gondola will leave you breathless as you take in panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. On your way up, stop at the Observation Deck for photos, and a latte at Cafe Blue.

Grab lunch, an icecream or a cocktail at Tamarack Lodge to refuel and refresh with our Lift and Lunch special. Adult/Teen/Senior Lift and Lunch tickets receive $15 dining vouchers; Child Lift and Lunch tickets receive $10 dining vouchers.
