SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — With the California sun shining down on one of North America’s deepest snowpacks, Heavenly Mountain Resort is gearing up for its 16th annual Spring Loaded festival. The two-week event is a non-stop party, full of concerts, competitions and some of the best spring ski and snowboard conditions at Lake Tahoe.

“Between the great skiing and riding, the most awe-inspiring view in the ski industry, the on-mountain concerts and events, followed by the late-night partying and gambling in South Lake Tahoe, Heavenly is the perfect place to celebrate spring,” said Pete Sonntag, Heavenly’s general manager. “The all-in, party attitude at Heavenly is unique among ski resorts in the U.S. and really embodies the overall atmosphere of the South Shore.”

Spring Loaded kicks off on Friday, March 30, at 3:30 p.m. with Unbuckle, Tahoe’s ultimate après ski party at Tamarack Lodge.

The celebration continues for 15 non-stop days and includes events such as the coveted Gunbarrel 25 hosted by Glen Plake, extreme pond skimming, a Helly Hansen fashion show featuring the Heavenly Angels, a bratwurst-eating contest, and live, outdoor concerts.

With a recent snowfall of nearly five feet, combined with the highest elevation in Tahoe, snow birds and warm weather revelers alike can expect great snow conditions and plenty of fun.

The festival will conclude on Sunday, April 15 with the Heavenly Ski Patrol throwing a roof-top party in the Heavenly Village, with all proceeds benefiting local causes and non-profit organizations.

Fridays and Saturdays, March 30 to April 15 — Unbuckle at Tamarack après party — 3:30-5:30 p.m.

March 31 — Helly Hansen Fashion Show featuring the Heavenly Angels and a concert with the Red Not Chili Peppers — 1 p.m. at Tamarack Lodge
