Blackout Weekend 101 – 10 Ways To Turn Up The Action!

Your Blackout Weekend wristband gets you access to a weekend of amazing events. Additionally add-on activities can keep the weekend action packed and non-stop. Lake Tahoe is famous for its resort activities like skiing and snowboarding, but if you're curious about non-skier/ boarder activities or what else to do between the mountain and the parties this post is for you!


1. Snowmobiling – Four wheelers are to land, as Jet-skiing is to water, as snowmobiling is to snow, so why not give it a go! Book with Blackout Weekend to join our group sessions on Friday or Saturday.

Check out the Snowmobile blog for group pricing.

2. Gondola Ride – The Gondola ride is not only for skiers. Feel free to take a ride on the Gondola and get a glimpse of Lake Tahoe that you can only see hundreds of feet in the air.
