The Best Après Ski Special in South Lake Tahoe

If you are skiing and snowboarding in South Lake Tahoe, there are many restaurants ready serve your post-skiing appetite. However, for the consummate snow sports enthusiast who is always looking to put every dollar into the sport, the Lakeside Inn and Casino in Stateline, NV has the perfect solution. From the minute the ski resorts close until 6 PM, you can take advantage of a number of great food, drink and gambling specials.

First off, bring your Heavenly Ski Resort lift ticket for season pass to the cage on the gambling floor to receive a couple of nice free perks. These include a voucher for one free pint of beer as well as a five dollar voucher to match your five dollar bet at blackjack or other table game.

In our eyes the free pint of beer is worth the trip. The bar usually carries a good selection of standard and craft beers on tap. The second free perk in itself also warrants a trip to visit this spot (if you like to gamble). Even if you don’t like to gamble, the risk reward on this offer is really good. For example, if you played one hand of blackjack using this offer two days in a row and won once and lost once, you would still be up five dollars. Multiply this by multiple days and you have a pretty good chance of winning some money.

The second part of the Lakeside special can be found downstairs at the restaurant in the back of the room. Here you can get good-sized fish tacos and slices of pizza for one dollar each. We have found that even after a day of riding, three fish tacos can be enough to fill your stomach. Maybe, if it’s a powder day you can add a slice of pizza to the order, putting you at a grand total of four dollars! That is a great deal, especially when you throw in the free pint of beer. In addition, once you’re done with that beer you can get one dollar pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon all night long.

Please note that this is not the place to be if you’re looking for a gourmet and/or healthy après ski meal. This is about getting a cheap, greasy meal with a couple of beers after a long day of skiing or snowboarding. The fish is deep-fried and comes with some very good tasting and unhealthy sauce, and the pizza is extra greasy just how we like it. If you’re lucky, this won’t even cost you much after you’ve won ten dollars using the voucher at the blackjack table. If you want a gourmet meal, there are plenty of choices near in the center of South Lake Tahoe within walking distance to the gondola.

In short, these specials are enough to get us over to Lakeside on a regular basis after some long hours on the mountain. We have yet to find something better. Unfortunately, this special is not available during the summer. You can only take advantage of this offer during ski season.
