Blizzard Fest returns for second year at Tahoe Beach Retreat & Lodge

Tahoe Beach Retreat & Lodge hosts its second annual Blizzard Fest on Saturday, Nov. 19.

Bring on the snow! As resorts around the Basin begin to open, it's definitely time to urge the flakes to fall. On Saturday, Nov. 19, the next pray-for-snow party comes to South Shore as Tahoe Beach Retreat & Lodge hosts its second annual Tahoe Blizzard Fest from 4-8 p.m.

"Join us as we summon the snow gods! Our second annual pray-for-snow party begins outdoors as we have a day party on the beach. Vendors, live music, games, raffle prizes, snow ceremony and more!

"Help the Beach Retreat & Lodge raise funds for the Tahoe Coalition for the Homeless' Warm Room by buying raffle tickets for items such as snowboards, Scott Pemberton concert tickets, Volcom swag, snow goggles, ski/board tune-ups, lift tickets and other great prizes!" states the venue's website.

Raffle tickets are $5 each, and 25 percent of proceeds are donated to the coalition. Bring a winter coat donation to receive one raffle ticket for free.

While the party starts at 4 p.m., mark your calendars for 5:30 p.m., when the Mr. and Mrs. Blizzard Fest contest takes place. Show off your creative winter spirit! Winners will receive a stay-and-play hotel and lift ticket package valued at $500.

Fun doesn't stop there — at 7 p.m. the pray-for-snow ceremony begins as fire dancers summon the snow gods.
