DECEMBER

Snowglobe Music Festival

Combine top performers, top skiing and snowboarding , plus New Year’s Eve and you know you are in for a one-of-a-kind happening. This South Lake Tahoe outdoor blow out is an annual three-day celebration all about mountains and music. Chart-topping acts—Skrillex, Zedd, Snoop Dogg etc.—keep things cranked up loud at the park-like and often snow-covered, grounds of the town’s community college. Between performances, watch skiers and snowboarders perform during live demonstrations. 

Insider’s tip: This is one event where parkas win out over boho-chic festival wear, heated enclosures also help you warm up if dancing has not. Also, convenient shuttles link the event to Stateline accommodation.
