This classic event invites the whole family out for springtime fun with a live DJ and face painting by renowned artist Giggle and Grin. The pond skim is free to enter and sign-ups are on a first-come, first-serve basis to those 10 and older. Did we mention the whole mountain is transforming into an 80’s throwback? Prizes will be awarded for the top three pond crossings, best crash and best costume.

Fans on the sidelines and onlookers at the Lodge at Big Springs deck have the chance to win Spring It On! swag, as well as groove to the live DJ. The Village keeps the decade rolling with an 80’s band at the ice skating rink stage.

If tights and neon colors are wrong, we don’t want to be right.

CANtina: A Canned Craft Beer Tasting

Northstar California celebrates a record-breaking winter with spring rhythm and worthy brews. The Lodge at Big Springs deck transforms into a beer-lovers paradise — canned beer that is. With more than ten craft selections and live music on the platform, this mountainside fiesta epitomizes spring in Tahoe while remaining environmentally conscious. From 1-3 p.m. guests can try 10 select IPAs, lagers and more for $30 (plus tax and fees), including a souvenir cup and surprise gift. Tasters must be 21+ to partake and may bring beverages outside of the adult zone to sit with friends and family elsewhere at the Lodge at Big Springs.  The Lodge at Big Springs is located at Mid Mountain so participants must either purchase a lift ticket or a gondola pass to participate. 

The Lodge at Big Springs will offer Mexican-inspired cuisine for a perfect pairing of Latin flavor. The good times continue down in the Village with live music at the ice skating rink stage from 3-5 p.m. and a DJ from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Winter won’t stay forever, but we can cheers to every last bit of it. ¡Salut!
