- Romantic Connections
Get cozy with your significant other during a romantic winter getaway at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, located within the Northstar resort. This breathtaking resort puts you into the heart of the action, and you can spend your whole weekend here.
The pampering starts when you drop your car off with the valet. After that, you won’t need it again until you’re ready to leave. At this resort, guests have ski-in ski-out access to the Northstar resort at their doorstep. After a strenuous day of skiing or snowboarding, the Highlands Spa on site is the perfect place to decompress. This spa has 17 treatment rooms, couples massages, a heated outdoor lap pool (open during the winter), and a eucalyptus steam room. Or you can get après ski cocktails at Highlands Bar.
Once you’re adequately rejuvenated, head down to the hotel’s Manzanita restaurant if you want to indulge in a more formal dinner. There are also a few casual dining options within the hotel if that’s your style.
After dinner, sitting by a fireplace or a fire pit is a relaxing way to close down the day. You also have the option to take the gondola or walk down to the Northstar Village, where you’ll find an ice skating rink, shopping, a movie theater, fire pits near outdoor bars, and more dining options.
Check into the Ritz-Carlton Northstar on Friday evening. Spend Saturday skiing or snowboarding in the morning and relaxing at the spa in the afternoon. On Sunday, take it easy with brunch at Manzanita, explore the village, or squeeze in more runs on the mountain before heading home.
