Let’s review why a visit to Tahoe South promises to be memorable.
Or how to be winterized in Tahoe South.
Get your alpine attitude on and we’ll do the rest. Begin with our winter vocabulary: Heavenly Mountain Resort, Kirkwood Resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort. On to a day of S’s: Ski, snowboard, snowmobile, snowshoe, sled, sleigh-ride. No sleepy-time for you! Check out one of the après-ski hot spots, then head out for some entertainment, gaming or a nightclub. That’s right. Our sidewalks are still open way past bedtime. That takes care of slope and snow stuff, but what else there is to do?
There is something in the water and Lake Tahoe water’s in Tahoe South’s blood. So lake cruises—sightseeing or dinner—don’t hibernate in the winter. You can also catch a lake view from the top of the Gondola. Why stop there? The Heavenly Mountain Coaster is barreling through the pines all year long or take to the tubing right there at Tamarack Lodge, which is really convenient because you’ll be hungry after the adrenaline rush. For a family day Adventure Mountain offers sledding, tubing and a good, old fashioned snowball fight.
‘Tis always the season for a bit of shopping at the new Chateau at the Village, The Crossing—both new to Tahoe South this year—or tried, true and teeming with great gifts, souvenirs and more snowy gear at Heavenly Village. Don’t head back to that comfy room yet; take in some dinner and a magic show right there at the Loft Theatre or slip the skates on and skim over the ice at the Village ice rink.
Whew! Take a break and take a drive. Perhaps to Genoa, the oldest town in Nevada, or Virginia City, built for the Comstock Lode silver mining boom. It’s okay if you can’t see the Lake for a day; it’ll be here when you get back in time for a lakefront dinner with a view of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
