There’s summer in Lake Tahoe, and there’s summer at the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe. A few weeks I got to experience a very special slice of heaven at the opening of the Lake Club, the new addition to the hotel on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. Read on for three days of sunshine, good food, and endless views.

The Ritz-Carlton hotel is nestled in the mountains north of Lake Tahoe, near the Northstar ski resort. It’s a spellbinding drive through an alpine forest straight out of fairy tales until you arrive at the top of a dizzingly winding road. The imposing building is a contemporary take on the classic mountain lodge, with its pitched roofs, timber framing, and granite detailing.
