There's a first time for everything. After a historical season, novelty skiing — and riding — will be in full effect this Fourth of July in Lake Tahoe. If May skiing didn't satiate your snow appetite, there's more, lots more. The last time I spent the 4th in Tahoe I tubbed down the river, wakeboarded, and hiked. This time, I can do all of the above...and SKI.
Sometimes you just need a weekend away with the girls. So, tell the boyfriend to go climb something while you make your way to the Hyatt Regency at Incline Village—it's the only north shore resort right on the water (hello, unbeatable views).
Back by popular demand (last year's attendees are still raving), the all-inclusive getaway combines the best of health, wellness, and beauty in the form of fitness classes (think pilates and belly dancing), skincare presentations by experts in the field (think consultant to the A-list Marilyn Jaeger), and plenty of spa treatments to go around (everyone gets $100 spa credits).
Some ski towns are about glitz, and some are simply about snow. Tahoe has always been one of the latter. Let Aspen have its Chanel stores—in Tahoe you get a ski condo, bluebird skies and après beers. But a little luxury never hurt anyone, especially not an aching and hungry skier. And with the December arrival to the Northstar-at-Tahoe slopes of the Ritz-Carlton Highlands —including a new restaurant by Jardinière’s Traci Des Jardins nestled within—you now have the choice of doing Tahoe like a real adult.
Need to jump start those New Year's yoga resolutions? Then head to rejuvenation station - Lake Tahoe - for their Wellness Weekend, running Jan. 29 through 31 at the plush, lakeside Hyatt Regency. The weekend's ideal for both yoga enthusiasts and those who want to get more down with their downward dog.
A cold front overtaking much of California and a recent bout of precipitation can mean only one thing...ski season has arrived!
As of Tuesday, snow totals at 9,000 feet or higher at Heavenly Mountain Resort topped out above 30 inches, and the powder will only continue to mount as the week progresses. So if you're a trail blazer--heck, even if you're simply a snow angel artiste--we suggest packing up your four-wheel drive and heading for South Lake Tahoe this weekend before the masses get there first.
There are very few men (on either Coast) more dashing than Boaz Mazor. Except for, perhaps, his boss: the inimitable designer Oscar de la Renta.
Fortunately for fashionable Bay Area-Tahoe denizens, this dynamic duo have graced us with almost-annual August visits (and fantastic fashion) since 1995 when de la Renta participated in his first Saks Fifth Avenue-League to Save Lake Tahoe fashion show.
Throw all those preconceived notions of summer festivals out the window. Forget the aggro mosh pits, scary camping conditions, and mid-afternoon burnout you normally suffer by day 2. A new kind of summer festival is headed your way, and it’ll replace that post-event exhaustion with a rejuvenated after-show glow.
