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, holiday music, and a 16-foot interactive snow globe where kids can get their photos taken with Santa. It all starts on December 19 and culminates December 31 with an unparalleled New Year’s Celebration. Ring in 2016 with an outdoor concert, a unique 9:00 pm 'Gondola' ball drop and an explosive fireworks show.
