2014-2015 Heavenly Winter Tip Sheet

Unbuckle at Tamarack
Unbuckle at Tamarack, rated as the No. 1 après ski party in North America by Forbes and confirmed by CNN Travel, is Lake Tahoe's highest elevation après ski party featuring music, drinking, dancing and the lovely Heavenly Angels - ripping skiers by day and go-go dancers when the sun dips below the Sierras. Après takes place daily from 3:30-5:30 p.m. with half-priced drinks and food specials and, exclusively on, Fridays and Saturdays, a live DJ, the Heavenly Angels, giveaways, and lots and lots of dancing. Last season, Heavenly elevated Unbuckle once again by taking the party out onto the patio at Tamarack Lodge with additional outdoor lighting, the Heavenly Angels dancing with the backdrop of the mountain, and, best of all, another bar to serve those half-priced drinks. Special guest DJs spin at Unbuckle. So, unbuckle those ski boots and snowboard bindings, and take your après game to the next level!
DJ Cat
Heavenly upped the ante in December 2013 by partnering with Aaron Hagar to retrofit a retired grooming machine into a custom-built mobile DJ station, complete with 52 high-output speakers, provided by Kicker Audio, and 1,200 watts of power.  Three remote control actuators slowly open the walls and roof of the DJ cat to reveal lights, speakers, and a 52” LCD screen, all clustered around a state-of-the-art DJ podium. This DJ cat brings the party to skiers and riders on the mountain.
Winter Ignite
From December 5-December 13, 2014, Heavenly will ramp up the excitement with a series of events to jumpstart the season, including pop-up DJ Cat parties, ski film screenings, Unbuckle Après kick-off parties, casino sponsored shows and a headliner to play the Winter Ignite concert that culminates on December 13. Celebrate the start of winter and bring on the snow!
Adventure Peak Activities Expanded
Cultivating a passion and appreciation for the outdoors is a year-round task, and Heavenly Mountain Resort is stepping up to the challenge by expanding its summer operations to include more interactive, family-friendly learning experiences. Included in the new offerings at Adventure Peak will be three ropes courses and two zip lines, including a four-line zip line center and the 3,300-foot-long Blue Streak. These activities will add to the already existing year-round tubing hill and summer-only hiking trails, free-standing rock wall and Spider Zone climbing tower at the top of the Gondola to create an experiential outdoor environment.
Heavenly Holidays
From December 20-31, 2014, Heavenly Holidays transforms the Heavenly Village into a holiday winter wonderland with lights, decorations, carolers, magicians, jugglers, ice sculpting, ice capades and a Ripperoo Parade. It all cumulates on New Year’s Eve, with a live band and brightly-lit Gondola that descends over the crowd, signaling the start of the New Year and a festive fireworks show. 
The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series
On March 20-21, 2015, Heavenly’s World Cup trail will be the site of The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series (PPOS) presented by Nissan. This freeskiing tour is a slopestyle, halfpipe, big air and rail jam skiing competition that is one of the only open-format event series that allows amateurs to have the opportunity to compete alongside top pros. PPOS is a grassroots pipeline for athletes hoping to develop their skills and eventually qualify for top-level competitions. Come on out and see future Olympic freeskiers!

High Roller Hold ‘Em
Heavenly will play its ace again this spring by hosting High Roller Hold ’Em, the industry’s most high-energy, innovative big air competition. Infusing an X Games-worthy big air competition with a little South Lake Tahoe casino gambling twist, High Roller Hold ’Em will take place on the World Cup run at Heavenly on Saturday, April 4, 2015, with a monster big-air jump, celebrity host and a huge jackpot at stake. Some of the world’s top professional snowboarders will compete again in this high-production, signature night-time event, which will also feature a live DJ, an exhibition with local athletes, fireworks, laser lights and the Heavenly Angels. This will be an epic party befitting Lake Tahoe’s south shore!
Skyway to Heavenly
Heavenly’s experiential campaign, Skyway to Heavenly, is hitting the City of Angels once again. Skyway to Heavenly is the ski and party trip of a lifetime for four lucky skiers/riders in LA. It’s a private jet that takes winners up to Lake Tahoe to play in the powder and party even harder afterward. Lodging, lift tickets, VIP nightclub access and more. All expenses paid. Everything will be over-the-top and out-of-control. The Heavenly-hosted party hits the city in January.
Looking for the ultimate man cave on-mountain? Booyah’s is the place for you. With a stunning view of Lake Tahoe as a backdrop, multiple TVs and 97 microbrews, Booyah’s is the place to be when watching a game on-mountain or just relaxing after a stellar pow day. The endless combination of gourmet, made-to-order burgers, more than 250,000 to be precise, isn’t bad either. Booyah’s is located on the California side at the top of the Tram inside Lakeview Lodge.
