Mountain Retreat
Seasonal / 29 Dec 2014

The crackling fire, the rush of speed during an early morning first tracks run and the warmth of a day-end jacuzzi and hot chocolate are all part of a day’s work during any winter getaway.  

California’s stunning and diverse terrain showcase some of the world’s most coveted winter resort towns and mountain escapes. One of our favorites is Northstar in Truckee, just minutes from Lake Tahoe.

The oh-so-classic Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe provides a classic mountain experience at its finest with coveted ski-in/ski-out access from guest rooms, luxurious accommodations, its award winning s’more, and unparalleled spa.

For those who ski or snowboard, strapping or clicking in immediately outside your suite at The Ritz to hit the slopes is the ultimate luxury. Northstar Mountain provides a wide range of runs for all levels featuring 3,170 acres of skiable terrain with 100 trails and 20 lifts. The Village at Northstar offers boutiques, dining, ice-skating, and more.

An elevated dining experience is the way to go, because you can…

At the top of the Northstar Mountain is Zephyr Lodge.  This unique dining experience takes on-mountain dining to a modern level while maintaining optimal coziness. The views of the Sierra Nevada and Carson Mountain Ranges from here are absolutely stunning.

Bundle up and embrace the beauty found in a mountain getaway!
