13005 Ritz-Carlton Highlands Ct., Truckee, CA 96161, United States

After much anticipation, the $300 million Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe opened in December 2009 at the family-friendly Northstar at Tahoe resort. The 170-room stone-and-wood lodge has a cavernous 17,000-square-foot spa with earthy treatments, such as a crushed pinecone exfoliating scrub and a cedar-oil massage; a buzzworthy restaurant, Manzanita, where San Francisco star chef Traci Des Jardins’s comfort food comes with a French twist (duck meatballs, wine-braised short ribs); and a pampering “mountain valet” who will manage your gear and escort you to the snow.
