North Lake Tahoe, Calif. (Vocus) October 16, 2009
The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe will open on December 9, 2009 and debut with an unmatched value on accommodations combined with lift tickets for Northstar at Tahoe Resort™. "We decided to kick off our first ski season with an amazing package including lift tickets to ski or snowboard on Northstar," said Allen Highfield, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton resort. "It is an once-in-a-lifetime value for our ski-in ski-out experience here on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe."
The Sneak Peak Ski Package includes deluxe room accommodations for three nights and two 3-day adult lift tickets for Northstar Resort. The initial Sneak Peak Ski Package is valid from December 9 (Opening Day of The Ritz-Carlton Highlands) to December 18, 2009 - from $349 per night. A three night minimum stay is required. The package also includes valet parking and resort fee nightly. It is an amazing opportunity to experience the destination ahead of the busy holiday season and will introduce guests to the brand new resort. Given the unprecedented interest in the new Lake Tahoe ski resort, the Sneak Peak Ski Package has been extended to include the winter season beginning January 4 - April 11, 2010 from $399 per night with the same inclusions and minimum night stay.
The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe is the first new-build resort development in the Lake Tahoe area in decades and will introduce its legendary service to Lake Tahoe later this year. It is anticipated to become Northern California's premier mountain retreat and is situated mid-mountain in the Northstar-at-Tahoe ski area. Guest services will feature a mountain concierge with ski-in, ski-out access in winter, as well as easy access to mountain biking and hiking in the spring, summer and fall. An inter-mountain gondola will connect guests between the nearby Village-at-Northstar and The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe resort. Perched slope-side within a 15 minute drive of both Lake Tahoe and the historic town of Truckee, the year-round destination resort includes 170 guest rooms, 23 private Ritz-Carlton Residences and 25 Ritz-Carlton Destination Club residences.
