Family holiday traditions run deep at Lake Tahoe. With this weekend’s openings of Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood make plans now to spend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend at The Ridge Tahoe.
Reserve your choice of lodging, and make reservations for dinner prepared by executive chef Stephen J. Moises and staff. The full course traditional Thanksgiving spread will be served from 3:00 – 7:00 p.m. at The Ridge Tahoe’s Hungry Bear Restaurant and features its long-standing traditional feast and a few surprise dishes too.
Start off with a roasted butternut squash soup with toasted walnut cream and served in a baby pumpkin before moving to the second course with your choice of honey maple glazed turkey with cornbread stuffing, mushroom gravy, creamy whipped potatoes, brussel sprouts and a citrus cranberry relish; brown sugar glazed Virginia ham with sweet potato mash, glazed carrots and ginger-pineapple chutney; pan-seared Alaskan halibut with herbed spaghetti squash and wild mushroom jus; or slow roasted prime rib with grilled asparagus, twice baked potatoes, au jus and creamy horseradish. Finally, save room for dessert – homemade pumpkin pie with caramel sauce, vanilla scented whip cream and seasonal berries.
Once you’ve gotten your fill on Thanksgiving favorites, it’s time to explore Lake Tahoe.
Well known as an iconic favorite at Tahoe South, The Ridge Tahoe’s family appeal and stunning panoramic views make for an ideal Thanksgiving vacation with the comfort and convenience of home. Skiing at Heavenly is part of the Thanksgiving weekend tradition. Heavenly opens Nov. 21 with a combination of Mother Nature’s own and machine-made snow.
Guests can hop aboard the complimentary Ridge Shuttle and the South Shore area coordinated transit system and be taken to the Heavenly Gondola.
Left the skis and snowboards at home? The Ridge Tahoe has you covered with on-site ski rentals and tune-ups, apparel, gear and Heavenly lift tickets at the Resort Sports Ski and Snowboard Shop. Returning from a day on the mountain, there’s a 45,000 square-foot clubhouse with an indoor sports complex, full spa, heated swimming pool, hot tubs, indoor tennis, racquetball and basketball courts, athletic instructors, complimentary laundry facilities and full-service lounge.
Guests can pamper themselves through the holiday weekend at the Elevation Spa which offers facials, massages, body treatments and rejuvenation packages from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
On-site activities are in abundance at The Ridge Tahoe’s Clubhouse and Resort Center for adults and teens while the little ones can be entertained at The Ridge’s complimentary Kids Club day camp. Families can pull together their collective skills with a number of video and table venues featured in the Family Game Room.
