On March 10, 2019, Forbes named Ritz-Carlton at Northstar Ski Resort one of the Best Ski Hotels in the nation. Here is an excerpt from the article:
The Ritz-Carlton at Northstar has a lower industry profile than many of its big-time peers, and remains one of the least well-known elite luxury ski hotels in the country. That’s a blessing for those who know it, and a loss for everyone else. If you visit for the first time, you will notice the difference immediately, from the moment the front desk staff hands you a glass of prosecco during check-in.
Highlights begin with a fantastic location mid-mountain, and this is also true more broadly, as the resort sits very close to Lake Tahoe, and in summer the hotel’s private dock, and also near the charming town of Truckee. Relative to the dozen-plus ski resorts strung around the lake, Northstar has one of the best geographic locations, period. The surprising reality, especially given Tahoe’s copious average snowfall, number of great mountains, and popularity with the well-heeled clientele from the Bay Area, is that there are only three true luxury ski hotels around the lake, and the other two are in South Lake Tahoe at Heavenly, giving the Ritz a monopoly on the more accessible North side.
Location is sometimes everything, and in this case the hotel is as truly ski-in/out as it gets. They complement this with an excellent ski valet featuring a full well-equipped rental shop and on-snow delivery and recovery of skis and snowboards. This in turn represents the resort in microcosm, where everything has been carefully designed for guest convenience. There is a great pool complex with three large hot tubs, a full deluxe spa, an excellent fitness center, all the facilities are first rate. The same is true for the guest rooms, which have amazingly comfortable beds, lots of modern charging options, and large deluxe bathrooms with oversized walk-in rain showers and Asprey toiletries.
