Spring is here and the conditions are the best they’ve been all year. April is the best month up in South Lake to enjoy California’s sunny skies, good vibes and of course the South Lake lifestyle.
April is going to be a great month not only have Heavenly and Kirkwood extended their seasons to include Fridays through Sundays for the last two weekends in April (more info). Heavenly’s Spring Loaded also kicks off with tons of events lined up every weekend. Check out the Schedule of events going down at Heavenly Mountain in April.
Gunbarrel 25 – Join legendary skier and infamous Mohawk rockin’ Glen Plake for some good ole’ mogul action. Gunbarrel 25 is non-stop action on the Gunbarell Express to see if you can mash 25 mogul runs down “The Face” in an allotted time. This mogul marathon will not only burn your legs out it will also give your Epic Mix a significant stat boost. Dress up like a kook and shred some moguls. If you’re a boarder pray for powder coz this even will tear those quads up. Click here to register.
Ski Patrol Fundraiser – The best way to wrap up 25 consecutive mogul runs is with multiple drinks. Head over to the top level of the Heavenly Village Parking Garage for Ski Patrol’s “Thank You” party for the community. Enjoy drink specials, great eats, raffle prizes, and live music all for a good cause as the proceeds benefit local causes and non-profit organizations.
Pond Skimming – Do you think you got what it takes to ski/ride on water? Then join tons of kooky competitors at Heavenly’s Pond Skimming tournament. If you don’t want to compete don’t worry the spectating is just as entertaining. Watch tons of skiers and riders try to make it across Adventure Peak’s Lake while being judged on distance and style. Also don’t forget your Costumes and crazy outfits because judges tend to favor the crowd appeal factor the most. All the action goes down at the top of the Gondola.
Winter Snow Blast - Shred all day, party all night at the Lake Tahoe Winter Snow Blast weekend. Join us for a weekend filled with live music at Harrah's Center Stage, 4800 acres of amazing skiing/riding at Heavenly, après ski parties at Tamarack everyday from 3:30 to 5:30 and more. The weekend features performances from some of the hottest bands in the industry. Check back soon for more details.
