Heavenly Mountain Resort will kick off the 2011/2012 season with Winter Ignite, a jam-packed week of skiing, music, parties and nightlife. South Shore is known for it’s endless nightlife and top-notch terrain, so to celebrate the start of the season, Heavenly will be hosting a series of events both on and off the mountain. Wax your skis and boards, stretch out those legs and get ready for a week full of riding, dancing and fun. Bring in the winter season right with Winter Ignite at Heavenly. 

Opening day, Nov. 18, begins with the region’s highest-elevation après ski party at the Tamarack Lodge featuring Heavenly Angels, MontBleu DJ David Aaron, drink specials and prizes. Guests can then head over to the casinos for dinner and to catch the premiere of Warren Miller’s new movie, “…Like There’s No Tomorrow,” which will be showing on the 18th and the 19th.

Don’t miss a concert by Grammy-winning American blues artist and rocker Jonny Lang on the 19th at Harrah’s Casino. The Heavenly after-party will continue at the Opal Ultra Lounge inside MontBleu where ladies drink free on Friday and no cover for ladies before midnight on Saturday.

The party will continue with a wild week of parties, music, entertainment and giveaways. On Saturday, Nov. 26, British alt-rockers Bush take the stage at MontBleu, and a poolside after-party rocks the Onsen Beach and Nightclub in MontBleu. There will be a hot body contest, DJ David Aaron and poolside aerialists. Guests get free admission to the after-party by showing their Epic Pass.
