A summertime getaway to Lake Tahoe usually means hitting the beach, taking on several networks of hiking and biking trails and seeing live music and shows at any number of venues between Stateline and South Lake Tahoe.

A summer stay at The Ridge Tahoe promises its own mountain of onsite recreation activities waiting for you from check in to check out.

During your stay you’ll want to visit the 45,000 square-foot clubhouse with an indoor sports complex, full spa, heated swimming pool, hot tubs, indoor basketball courts and athletic instructors. If you prefer racquet sports, there’s indoor tennis and racquetball courts inside and three outside tennis courts. You can even sign up for onsite tennis lessons to add some spin to your game.

Don’t want to adventure alone? The resort offers many organized activities designed to give something to do for everyone.

The Ridge Tahoe is known as a family-friendly resort where kids, parents and grandparents will find plenty of indoor and outdoor recreation opportunities. Kids who grew up on vacation at The Ridge are now bringing their own children every year to enjoy the resort, its 30-seat movie theater, kids’ arts and crafts center, games, arcades and in summer months miniature golf, a putting green and a playground.

For golfers looking to get in some warm up time ahead hitting the links around the lake, The Ridge Tahoe offers its own outdoor driving range. Woods and irons are encouraged here with meshed nets that give golfers the chance to hone their technique and find that precious sweet spot.

Once the muscles are loosened, golfers can head over to the on-site miniature golf course putting greens. Gentle sloped greens give way to numerous breaks, giving putters ample opportunities to give their short game the finishing touches they need before heading out.

Dining is a major component during a stay and while most units include kitchens, for a convenient night out at the resort there’s the Hungry Bear Restaurant, The Mountain Side Eatery and the Bear Trap Lounge. The Hungry Bear offers seasonal menus with true Sierra cuisine – simple food prepared perfectly with locally-fresh ingredients to complement the resort’s peaceful and homey vibe.

Many chef’s keep their cooking traditions a secret. The Ridge Tahoe Chef Stephen Moise does not. Part demonstration, part cooking lesson, guests are invited to sit in with him and the staff every Tuesday from 4 – 9 p.m. for an evening with the chef to learn how to prepare a three-course meal Sierra-style.
