Clean, crisp mountain air, fresh tracks of new snow and thousands of acres of pine trees — you won’t find in any of these in Las Vegas.

While Sin City may have palm trees, The Ridge Tahoe has the Sierra and that big blue jewel of a lake.

If you’re one to get your licks in early on the slopes, a snowmobile, or aboard a paddlewheeler before the sun hits noon and then try your hand at the card table wearing your best poker face in time for dinner — you’ve come to the right place.

Minutes away from the Ridge Tahoe is the casino core that amounts to a full-deck of high-rolling, dice-kissing, slot pulling adventure. Home to world-class casinos, Tahoe South is the place to get your game on.

Take in a little gambling action during your trip to The Ridge Tahoe.

You may feel slightly virtuous after spending the day in the great outdoors: Time to undo that feeling. If ever there was a place to rally, Stateline is the place.

An epicenter with star-studded entertainment, Grammy-winning musicians, live music, lounge acts, 24-hour gaming and an active bar and social scene, you can leave the driving to The Ridge Tahoe Shuttle and BlueGo, which will take you to and from the resort into South Shore’s gaming mecca.

Tahoe South has the best of both worlds: natural scenery that borders on the ridiculously beautiful, coupled with nightlife that doesn’t quit. If you play your cards right, you can experience both sides of the coin in one day. Either way, all bets are decidedly on.

There are six casinos at South Shore to check out: MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, Harveys Lake Tahoe, Horizon Casino Resort Lake Tahoe, Lakeside Inn and Casino and Dotty’s Casino.

Want to get off the hill and into the Carson Valley? The Ridge Tahoe offers a complimentary shuttle to Carson Valley Inn every Sunday so that you can gamble, dine and drink to your heart’s content!
