Holidays in Tahoe South


When renowned meteorologist, Chris Tomer, says it’s going to be a big winter, skiers and boarders take note! Mother Nature has already teased Lake Tahoe with the first snowfall reaching lake level in October. Starting with Thanksgiving, and the traditional opening days for Heavenly Mountain Resort, Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel is gearing up for a record breaking holiday season. Ahead of the first turn of the chairlifts and before the pumpkin pie and turkey goes into the oven, brisk mornings and a glow of white on the mountaintops often melt into deliciously warm afternoons. The lake, free of the summer boat traffic, is the perfect mirror for Tahoe’s ridiculously blue skies.
