“Man, I could really go for a Bloody Mary right now.”
Ever found yourself in this headspace? How about while on the mountain?
Well, now there’s a cure for all your woes! It’s vodka! It’s tomato juice! It’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner! It’s the world-renowned Bloody Mary!
To date, I can say with a fair amount of certainty, that THE BEST BLOODY MARY to be found in the South Lake Tahoe area is at the Stagecoach Lodge at Heavenly.
Situated at 7480′ elevation, Stagecoach is the highest elevation base lodge of Heavenly’s 4 base lodges (California, Gondola, Boulder, & Stagecoach). You can get onto the mountain from any of these, but only Stagecoach serves this legendary Bloody Mary.
Not too spicy, not too tomato-y, not too salty, and with all the vegetables stuck necessary to make your lunch complete! The pickled green bean is the real clincher, in my opinion, but without the amazingly delicious mix that they make for their bloodies, this article never gets written.
(FYI, they make these bloodies all over the mountain, but there’s something about Natalie & the bartenders at Stagecoach…they make them best!)
IT’S SO GOOD YOUR FRIENDS WHO SAY THEY CAN’T STAND BLOODY MARYS WILL NOT ONLY LIKE IT, THEY WILL FINISH IT!!!
