Homewood Mountain Resort is about to enter the modern era.
After half a decade of wishing and hoping, wheeling and dealing, the homey little West Shore ski and snowboard hill on Wednesday evening got the approval of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency to go ahead with Phase 1 of its $500 million master plan.
Although the waters of Lake Tahoe aren’t strictly restorative, folks from the City have been traveling to the Big Blue for generations in seeking solace from the hassles of day-to-day urban life.
Come Friday, you can head up to Tahoe for a little R&R and perhaps get some health concerns cleared up in the bargain as Granlibakken Lodge plays host to the annual Women’s Wellness Weekend in Tahoe City.
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.
