It’s never too cold for carnival

The Heavenly Holidays Carnival will be open in Heavenly Village from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Dec. 31. At the base of the Gondola, there will be two trains running. Catch the Heavenly Express at the holiday-inspired train depot near the gigantic Christmas tree. Passengers can enjoy stops along the ride for cookies and hot cocoa. Admission is $4.

While riding, it will be hard to miss the Tahoe South Ferris Wheel. For $5, guests can enjoy the most spectacular views of the lake by day; by night the village will twinkle with tons of lights.

From 4 to 7 p.m. daily, there will be shows on the Heavenly Village Ice Rink. | skiheavenly.com
