Dan Garrison – General Manager

The resort team is working hard to prepare for the up-coming holidays and winter season. In fact, the snow is falling as I type this message to you right now!  30 years later and I am still awe struck by the beauty we call Lake Tahoe and the Sierra.

The Food and Beverage team lead by Simon Generalao and Stephan Moise have put together two outstanding menus to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with our special New Year’s Eve dinner following at one of the best values in town.  Reserve your seat by calling concierge at 775-588-3553 x3150.

Believe it or not (where have I heard that before…) we are pulling out the Christmas decorations and yes, in a few weeks we will hold our annual Christmas Decoration Day where the management staff, under the good direction of an Engineer, spend the day turning the Ridge Club and the resort properties into a Holiday Winter Wonderland. The holidays are truly a special time to spend here in the High Sierra.  There is just something about the light of a fireplace, favorite beverage, cozy chair with a throw blanket over your lap and a good book. Of course it’s hard to focus when the sights outside the window are so breathtaking.

Join us at the Resort and enjoy special rates during a special time of the year.

For local businesses, be sure to consider us for your company Christmas party, we have some dates still available and it is affordable. Treat your staff or friends and family to a Christmas Celebration at the top. For more information and available dates contact Josh Forsyth at jforsyth@ridge-resorts.com.  Josh will find just the right fit for you. Big, medium or small groups are welcomed.

Engineers put the final touches on our Skier Express so that when Heavenly opens on Wednesday we will be ready!  Sitting at 7,500 feet, they are also placing snow steaks along the road! Resorts Sports is busy tuning up all their ski’s and boards preparing for the season ahead. Bring on the snow!

All our staff received their annual Christmas Party invite and order forms today so we can purchase Christmas Presents for their children.  This event each year ranks number one for our team.  An afternoon of Christmas Presents, pictures with Santa, full Christmas Buffet, live Christmas Music and awesome company.

All of us hope to see you soon at the resort and we send our warm thoughts to you and your families for a wonderful and safe Holiday Season.
