The Wedding Weekend

One of the great things about Lake Tahoe is that there are so many activities for your guests to do when they are not attending the wedding.  They can go mountain biking, boating, hiking, or gambling to name a few.  New this summer they can go on an Epic Discovery at the top of Heavenly Mountain Resort.

Guests can take the scenic Gondola ride up from the Heavenly Village to the Observation Deck at 9,123 feet and take in the amazing views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains.  Included with the scenic Gondola ticket, guests can ride Tamarack Chair, hike the many trails, and learn about the animals and history of Tahoe.

Those more adventurous folks can purchase the Ultimate Adventure Pass (or Little Explorer Pass for the younger guests) and have unlimited access to the Ridge Rider Mountain Coaster, Hot Shot Zip Line, Ropes Courses, Summer Tubing, and the Granite Peak Climbing Wall.

Epic Discovery provides a unique, connected, on-mountain summer experience, immersing you in activities which provide big-time thrills, allowing you to challenge yourself physically, guiding you to explore and better understand your natural surroundings, and ultimately create lifelong memories. Bring your family and friends to Heavenly this summer!  

Group rates are available for 20 or more guests.  Please call 775.586.4442 for more details.

Arches, Arbors, and More

So much time and energy goes into the planning of the wedding reception, however every wedding ceremony should be as unique as the couple.  From the words that are spoken to the decor at the location.

At Heavenly Resort we offer a wooden arch at Lakeview Lodge for couples to be able to decorate, leave as is, or remove completely.  This offers a simple way to personalize your wedding ceremony.  Here are just a handful of different ways to decorate an arch or keep it simple.

Vendor Spotlight - Discover Lake Tahoe Tours

As you plan your wedding weekend, there are plenty of vendors that you will work with - cake, flowers, band, etc.  But one of the most important things to think about is transportation.  You do want your guests to get to and from your wedding as well as the weekend of events safely and timely.  We of course have a favorite shuttle service here at Heavenly and that is Discover Lake Tahoe Tours and Charters.  Janez Demsar is the owner and he recently took some time out of his busy schedule to discuss weddings and Lake Tahoe in general.  You definitely want to check out his website at to see the entire fleet of vehicles and options for your time here in Tahoe.

What’s your favorite local restaurant? 

What’s your favorite local charity? 
Salvation Army

What is your favorite fun thing to do in Tahoe? 
Mountain biking

What are you most grateful for in life? 
My family

If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what elements would be most important to you?
To have as much stress free time leading up to the wedding as possible - so hire planners. Or course a view of the lake would be important.

What advice would you give to brides and grooms getting married today?
Hire a wedding planner and get a venue with a view of Lake Tahoe.

Why Tahoe for weddings?
The beauty, services, amenities, and a friendly environment.

Check out Janez and his team at!  Thank you Janez!
