The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe

The Ritz-Carlton chain brings its sophisticated style to California's Lake Tahoe region with the opening of this luxe mountain retreat. Offering ski-in, ski-out access, The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is the first true top-of-the-line resort and the first new-build resort development in this premier ski region in decades. Three hundred million dollars went into the creation of this year-round destination resort with an inter-mountain gondola to connect the hotel to the nearby Village-at-Northstar. Guests can choose from 170 elegant guest rooms, 23 private Ritz-Carlton Residences and 25 Ritz-Carlton Destination Club residences. For those who work up an appetite on the slopes, Manzanita is helmed by renowned San Francisco chef Traci Des Jardins. The restaurant's organic cuisine is a perfect pairing for the rejuvenation to be found at the 17,000-square-foot The Ritz-Carlton Spa.
