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.

Looking for an after-party? Rock, blues and funk artist Pemberton hosts a 21+ concert at 9 p.m. in the Conference Center. Tickets are available at the door for $10.
