On the Snow Activities
Skiing and Riding
Most likely, you have chosen South Lake Tahoe as your Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend destination in part because of the snow activities! This is a prime weekend to get out and enjoy Tahoe’s winter wonderland. If you are a skier or rider, or want to become one, spend a day at Heavenly Mountain Resort, South Lake Tahoe’s local ski mountain. Heavenly offers great skiing and riding to those of all levels and abilities. If you are new to the sport, or want to enhance your skills sign up for a group or private lesson! This is a great way to feel comfortable on the mountain, and learn the trails from an expert!
Sledding and Tubing
If you are visiting the snow for the first time of the season, then getting out on a sled is a must, especially if you have children. Luckily, in South Lake Tahoe we have many great designated sledding spots to enjoy. We also highly recommend bringing up your own sled, and finding the nearest slope to your vacation rental. Then you can sled for free! Sledding near your rental is great because when your kids get a little chilled, you can bring them inside and enjoy a cup of hot-chocolate in front of your vacation rental’s fireplace!
Ride over the meadow and through the woods with Borges Sleigh Rides in South Lake Tahoe. This family owned and operated team operates in the open field across from MontBleu Resort’s parking lot. Sign up for a ride with your family, or just a romantic ride for two, and bundle up on a sleigh under a warm blanket. Learn about local history of the Pony Express Trail which your ride will take you on. After the ride, ask your guide to feed your horse a special treat!
Enjoy Your Vacation Rental
You carefully picked out your vacation rental to enjoy over the holiday weekend, so plan some time with your family to enjoy it! Plan an afternoon or evening in, and challenge your friends and family to a game of pool in your rental’s game room. Or, relax by the fire and have a family game night! Ask your reservation agent if the home comes with board games, or bring up your favorites. Buckingham still has many gorgeous luxury homes available for the Martin Luther King Jr. Weekdn of January 13 – 16, 2017 but they are booking up quickly. Here are just a few of the available vacation rentals for Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend! (We currently have a three night minimum on all of our vacation rental homes.)
