But did you know that there’s always more going on in Tahoe that just the great outdoors? It’s true! Here are a few of the best Winter events in Tahoe that you’ll need to check out on your next vacation:

Holiday Tree Lighting in Kings Beach

Get the 2018 holiday season kicked off the right way stopping by stopping by the annual lighting of the Holiday Tree in King’s Beach. Taking place in early December every single year, the lighting of the tree is accompanied by a celebration that will help even the grinchiest of folks get into the holiday spirit! Meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus, enjoy live music from local bands, keep warm with delicious cups of hot cocoa, and much more. The date for this year’s holiday tree lighting has yet to be announced, so make sure to check often for your chance to see this great event because it’s definitely one of the best Winter events in Tahoe.

Squaw Valley Fireworks & Torchlight Parade       

Celebrate 2019 Tahoe style! Feel free to grab your skis and join in on one of Tahoe’s greatest traditions, the Squaw Valley Fireworks & Torchlight Parade. In this New Year’s celebration, you get to participate firsthand, as you can ski downhill while carrying a torchlight to say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019! There’s truly no sight quite like watching a stream of glowing torchlights heading down the slopes of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. There are also carnival games for the kids, and a fireworks celebration to cap off the night.

Other Winter Events in Tahoe

Not much a skier? No problem, there’s plenty more ways in Tahoe to celebrate the New Year! For example, check out Heavenly Holiday’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, a two-week long extravaganza that caps off on New Year’s itself. Enjoy amazing fire dancers, ice sculptors, games, and much more. The night ends at 9 PM (midnight on the East Coast) with a breathtaking fireworks celebration that lights up the sky and welcomes 2019 with a bang! This event is great for families of all ages, and if you want to take part, make sure to head over to Heavenly Village in South Lake Tahoe.
