Enjoy South Lake Tahoe as your home away from home for the holidays. Snow capped mountains, sleigh rides, sparkling Christmas lights, and world-class skiing all encompass the regular South Lake Tahoe scene, but during the holidays things really get going.
Celebrate the season at Heavenly Holidays, our two-week festival in the Heavenly Village - featuring ice sculptors, carolers, and a 16-foot interactive snow globe where kids can get their photos taken with Santa.
