at Luxury Mountain Resort

NORTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – January 25, 2018 – The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, the first and only AAA Five Diamond mountain resort in California, is pleased to welcome guests and locals alike for a revitalizing wellness retreat this winter. Inspired by the New Year and the surrounding wintry outdoors, The Ritz-Carlton, Spa, Lake Tahoe provides targeted treatments to compliment chilly conditions and rejuvenating fitness classes for a post-holiday refresh.

“Upon stepping foot in our 17,000 square-foot forest sanctuary, guests will instantly feel relaxed and awakened from the spa’s natural surroundings and intricate tree themed design,” said Candice Betz, spa director of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. “Our seasonal spa treatments embrace these natural elements, while also combatting dryness and high altitude, along with sore muscles as a result of a myriad of winter activities.”

Focused on restoration, renewal, relaxation and recovery, the winter spa menu includes:


From mountaintops to oceanfronts, remote regions to urban jungles, our environments are full of stressors that affect our skin. Nourish and soothe while you help your skin defend against the cumulative effects of sun, wind, pollution and stress. This facial features the Natural Repair Complex, a powerful active blend that promotes 2x faster cell regeneration to help treat damaged, sensitized skin that will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the elements. 80 minutes, $300.


Treat yourself to this to this soft, glowing treatment of superfine body polish, soothing honeydew body lotion and added luxury of a hydrating calendula butter to protect the new layers of your baby soft skin. A truly gentle and nourishing way to care for hands and feet. 80 minutes, $175.


Wrap yourself in the warm scents of chai spice and vanilla in this restorative body treatment.  Ginger, cardamom, black pepper and clove warm the body and support circulation while soothing muscle and joint discomfort.  Renew your skin with a body polishing scrub, followed by a loose wrap to encourage your body’s natural detoxification process with a chai body butter application.  A gentle scalp and neck massage while wrapped will set your mind adrift and leave you feeling calm and cozy. 75 minutes, $235


After a day on the mountain, return tight, aching muscles to peak condition with this focused, tension-relieving treatment which includes a take home Arnica Turmeric Joint formula with extracts of ginger and frankincense. 80 minutes, $275.
