South Lake Tahoe is one place you can ski by day and party all night. Heavenly Mountain Resort and Sierra-at-Tahoe provide the slopes while casino resorts on the Nevada side of the state line fill in the after hours with nightclubs, casinos, and dining. Harrah's and Harveys casino resorts in South Lake Tahoe package up the fun with lodging.
The two resorts sit across the street from each other in Stateline, the town connected to South Lake Tahoe and separated only by the California-Nevada boundary. The pair of hotels connect via an underground tunnel, making access to concerts, nightclubs, casinos, dancing, and dining at each a breeze. You can hit the Hard Rock Café, the Cabo Wabo Cantina, the Improv, Cliché cocktail and cigar bar, and a Vex nightclub show with a few stops for gaming in between.
The casino resorts are closest to Heavenly Mountain Resort, a 10-minute walk or short cab ride from the hotel to the gondola. Other resorts require a drive of 30-50 minutes. Discounted lift tickets are available for Heavenly, Sierra-at-Tahoe, Kirkwood Mountain Resort, and Squaw Valley USA.
A ski and stay package is available for Harrah's and Harveys. The Harrah's Tahoe Winter Getaway package, which starts at $118 per night double occupancy, includes a $50 credit for dining and two-for-one tickets to Improv. The Winter 2011 package at Harveys starts at $70 per night double occupancy with a $25 dining credit and two-for-one Improv tickets. A five percent discount on adult full day lift tickets is available on tickets signed to the room.
The packages, which can be booked by phone or online, are available through April 30. Refer to code PKGSKI when asking for further details and making reservations.
