Activities

PARTY AT 2,800 METRES WITH UNBUCKLE

Warning this party is rated M for Mature.

Discounted drinks. Music. Dancers. An electric vibe. We are taking the après ski party to new heights— 2800 metres to be exact— with Unbuckle at Tamarack, Tahoe’s ultimate après party. After going all-in on the mountain, keep the energy level high with us at Tamarack Lodge at the top of the Gondola. Unbuckle those boots and grab a drink—a half price drink that is! Unbuckle at Tamarack runs from 3:30 to 5:30pm daily featuring live DJs, half-priced drinks and food specials with the Heavenly Angel dancers exclusively on Fridays and Saturdays. As the party winds down up top, you will get the unique experience of riding the Gondola at night. See the moonlit lake and the town of South Lake Tahoe sparkle with city lights. This is one party you do not want to miss.

CASINOS

Supposedly the average person can go 72 hours without sleep. If ever a place screamed "Prove it," it's Heavenly.

On the South Shore of this spectacular natural wonder are a small group of first-class, top-quality casinos that provide the opulence, excitement and fun that Nevada nightlife is famous for. Some of the biggest names in the gaming industry, as well as several "home-grown" casinos, call Lake Tahoe home. While visiting the South Shore, you will probably want to spend time at each of the distinctive gaming establishments.

DJ CAT

Heavenly upped the ante by partnering with artist and musician Aaron Hagar to retrofit a retired grooming machine into a custom-built mobile DJ station. Complete with 52 high-output speakers and 1,200 watts of power, the DJ cat will be bringing the party to the mountain in various locations all season long.

LA local on-mountain favourite, Sky Deck offers southern-style barbeque, pizza, warm sun and cold beers from the Sky Bar. Try the smokehouse grill menu, smoked slowly right on the mountain.
