Storms dump new snow in time for Presidents Weekend
With Lake Tahoe area ski resorts getting at least a foot of new snow last weekend, this three-day Presidents Day and Valentine’s weekend will snowball with outdoor recreation adventure.
Book now for your weekend at The Ridge Tahoe and choose either a one or two bedroom condominium suite or a deluxe hotel room. After you’ve checked in, prepare for a weekend of skiing or boarding at our partner resorts: Heavenly, Sierra-at-Tahoe, Kirkwood, Northstar or Squaw Valley/Alpine.
The Ridge Tahoe offers Ski In/Ski Out access to the Heavenly’s Stagecoach Chairlift via the Hilltrac Skier Express Lift. The self-operated 8 passenger gondola-like transport whisks you down to Heavenly in less than 3 minutes.
Left the skis or snowboards at home? The Ridge Tahoe has you covered with on-site ski rentals and tune-ups, apparel, gear and lift tickets at the Resort Sports Ski and Snowboard Shop. Outdoor adventures extend beyond the mountain with cruise options on the Bleu Wave from Ski Run Marina, tubing hills, ice skating, dog sledding, scenic hikes around Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake and strolls along Tahoe beaches including Lakeview Commons (El Dorado Beach), Camp Richardson, Zephyr Cove and Nevada Beach.
After you return from a day on the mountain or exploring Tahoe South, 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.
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 gaming skills with a number of video and board venues featured in the Family Game Room.
Guests can pamper themselves through the long weekend at the Elevation Spa which offers facials, massages, body treatments and rejuvenation packages from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Returning to The Ridge Tahoe from a day of skiing and boarding? You’ll want to stop in for a beverage at The Bear Trap Bar. The lounge is set in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Daily drink specials are a great way to relax after a day in nature’s playground. Make your plans, then take in dinner at The Hungry Bear Restaurant. On the lighter side, there’s The Mountain Side Eatery, open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eat-in or take back to your room, you choose.
If you’re with your sweetheart, enjoy a romantic Valentine’s dinner at The Hungry Bear Restaurant, featuring a three-course gourmet menu on Feb. 14. Please make reservations at 775-588-3553 ext. 3150.
