Spring Festivities Not To Be Missed On The Slopes – Including Pond Skimming

Springtime in Lake Tahoe is what California/Nevada skiing is all about. Bluebird days are abundant, the snowpack is deep, and the party scene is heating up. Spring is the season of fun in every shape & size you can imagine. Here are a few spring festivities not to be missed on the slopes.

Slush Cup (Kirkwood), April 13th

Make a splash by attempting to cruise across the pond skim at this year’s Kirkwood Slush Cup. Bring your floaties and best retro ski gear and help us celebrate a renewed tradition at Kirkwood.

Lake Tahoe Pond Skimming (Heavenly Mountain), April 7th

Pond Skimming Heavenly Mountain Resort

The legendary Gunbarrel 25 might have all the claim to fame during the springtime festivities, but the pond skim is a true annual tradition that can’t be missed. It’s the ultimate rite of passage for any real skier or snowboarder worth his/her weight in powder during the winter months. Come see participants ski or board themselves off a snow jump in the hopes of coming out on the other side in style. Funky costumes are encouraged for this chilly endeavor.

As the days get longer and the sun creeps higher, spring is THE time to visit Lake Tahoe. And these springtime festivities just add more flair to what might be the greatest place to vacation in April & May!
