With meteorologists talking about a powerful El Niño, the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, located mid-mountain at Northstar California Resort, is ready to welcome winter travelers to the North Lake Tahoe region to experience the myriad of winter activities on offer. Northstar is slated to receive significant snow from the latest early season storm hitting the Sierra – up to 2 feet is expected at 8,000 feet. Regional temperatures are forecast to be well below average, offering ideal conditions to power up the snow-making guns. Temperatures are expected to remain cold throughout the extended forecast period.

“We are thrilled with the current snowfall blanketing the resort and are looking forward to welcoming all those eager winter enthusiasts to our picturesque destination,” said Joseph Mattioli, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. “This will be a fantastic holiday season, and a Thanksgiving like we haven’t seen in a while here at the resort. The experiences offered by the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe throughout the season are a great compliment to the winter recreational activities offered by Northstar California Resort, which offers the finest terrain, conditions and guest services in the Lake Tahoe region.”

Skiers and snowboarders can enjoy ski-in/ski-out access to close-by Northstar California Resort and can visit the Village at Northstar via the hotel’s intermountain gondola. With a slope-side location on Northstar’s “Big Easy” run, the ski-in/ski-out access is for skiers and riders of any level. Northstar includes more than 3,100 acres of beginner to advanced ski and snowboard terrain, a world-class ski and snowboard school for children and adults, and access to the only Burton Snowboard Academy in the United States. Additional local winter activities include snowshoe star tours, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowmobile tours, tubing and sledding, and dog sled tours.
