Nobody does spring skiing better than Lake Tahoe, and Heavenly Ski Resort's annual Spring Loaded Festival (March 28th-April 5th) is the season's see-and-be-seen event. A week of non-stop après ski parties rage the top of the Gondola and a D.J. presides over the Gun Barrel 25, an annual spring challenge seeing who can make 25 laps down Heavenly's infamous mogul run, Gun Barrel in one day. Redbull's Snow Warz event (parties, music, a slope style competition and poker tournament) blends into the casino-based nightlife of South Lake, attracting pros and San Francisco tech types. And there is still powder to be had up top.
