Guests and Visitors Will Enjoy Invigorating Seasonal Spa Treatments That Conjure Up a Sense of Place  

NORTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – December 19, 2016 – Known for its ideal mid-mountain location at Northstar California Resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe announced a new spa program launching at its signature retreat, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Lake Tahoe, providing targeted treatments to complement the myriad of year-round outdoor activities offered at the resort. From skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing in the winter to hiking, mountain biking and kayaking in the warmer months, the 17,000-square-foot forest sanctuary will revive sore muscles with natural elements, such as warm indigenous stones from Lake Tahoe and signature blends to ease tender joints.

The new menu includes locally driven treatments like “Tahoe Tree of Life” which restores the body and mind with an aromatic salt soak incorporating elements from the Lake and a “Biodynamic Facial” featuring organic and biodynamic ingredients that gently tones and hydrates dry skin resulting from the high altitude. For nail care, an indulgent “Ultimate Manicure” and “Ultimate Pedicure” is now available to deeply nourish, repair, replenish and condition nails for longer lasting results.

“Our goal with the new spa program is to celebrate what we have available to us locally as well as offer specific treatments that complement the abundance of year-round outdoor adventures,” said Joseph Mattioli, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. “For those who are looking to renew their commitment to healthy living, or are simply in need of a respite from the holiday season’s indulgences, we are committed to improving the wellness of our guests’ mind, body and soul in the relaxing and revitalizing surroundings of our mountainside oasis.”

A focus of the new spa program, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Lake Tahoe also introduced four localized treatments to its new menu that will be offered year round, with adjustments made to each depending on the season. This winter, to combat the cold and dryness from Lake Tahoe’s wintry outdoors and ease sore muscles resulting from the various seasonal activities, the four signature winter spa treatments focus on restoration, renewal, relaxation and recovery. These signature spa treatments include:
