South Lake Tahoe Blog
How’s it going everybody? Hope you’re all having as great a start to the month of April as we are here in South Lake Tahoe, California. Not many places will have a late March storm, with temperatures in the high 20’s, that dumps snow for ten days, and then goes right into 50 to 60 degree days for awesome spring skiing, but Lake Tahoe got it this season! Not more than a week ago we were in the middle of a huge pow storm, and now we’re gettin our tans on! Its beautiful up here right now, and all that recent snow just ensures us an amazing spring skiing season! So make sure to get up to Lake Tahoe this month to work not only on your perfect turn, but your perfect tan as well! And of course, get your perfect ski rental delivery service with us here at Ski Butlers South Lake Tahoe! (p.s. raccoon eyes are HOT right now!)
Well, here’s a little teaser of some of the activities on mountain that are available for those of you brave enough to get in the best spring skiing possible, here in South Lake Tahoe:
This is going to be a fun spring at Heavenly.

Starting on the 9th of April is the Gunbarrel 25! This is an advanced skier event, where the objective is to lap the double black diamond Gunbarrel run twenty five times between 10am and 4pm. There are also on mountain Scavenger Hunts April 11th through the 13th, a beach party at the East Peak Lodge on the 14th, the Ski Patrol Concert and Fundraiser at the parking garage by the gondola, and my favorite spring event, POND SKIMMING! The 17th and the 23rd of April there will be POND SKIMMING across “lake Heavenly” near the top of the gondola. Come have fun in the slush and sun!
Sierra at Tahoe is spicing up their spring season with the Billabong Flaunt-It Girl’s Finals on the 9th of April.
