SnowFest returns February 25 to March 6, with dozens of events taking place on the north shore to celebrate all things winter.

On March 6, The Great Ski Race brings racers together and raises funds for the Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue Team.

To extend the season, Tahoe Donner Cross Country has installed snowmaking machines for the first time to ensure a high-quality snow season.

Off the mountain, check out the Winter Speaker Series online and at Olympic Valley Lodge at Palisades Tahoe, showcasing the outdoor industry’s biggest names, like Sierra-based snowboarder Nick Russell and seasoned adventurer Hilaree Nelson.

All winter long, The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe hosts après specials, including the Whiskey & Waffles Cabin and Champagne & Caviar Bar.

In South Tahoe, Heavenly Mountain Resort and Kirkwood Mountain Resort welcome guests for a new ski season, but Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort’s 75th season is slightly delayed from the aftermath of the Caldor Fire; the exact opening date is TBD.

Snowshoe to the Champagne Chalet at Edgewood Tahoe Resort and enjoy Veuve Clicquot at a charming, retro-inspired bar with outdoor seating.

And visitors don’t have to miss out on wellness practices while on vacation; the Bliss Experiences Lake Tahoe offers yoga, retreats and more.
