South Lake Tahoe, California – date – A High Sierras adventure from the new The Landing Resort & Spa, Lake Tahoe’s first five-star luxury lakeside offering, takes guests deep into Tahoe’s winter wonderland. The resort’s new three-night Escape into Winter package for two allows couples to experience the area’s dramatic natural beauty via snowmobile and on-the-lake tours, as well as enjoying the ultra-luxe comforts of personalized spa treatments and one of The Landing’s sumptuous Deluxe King Fireplace rooms.
“We’ve designed the Escape into Winter package to introduce our guests to the season’s best activities and attractions that Lake Tahoe and the High Sierras have to offer,” says The Landing General Manager Jim Promo. “Of course Tahoe skiing is legendary, and we’ve got that covered for skiers with tailored packages and our special skier amenities, but the area has so much more to offer, from incredible backcountry experiences to adrenaline-boosting extras like a winter ropes course or Heavenly tubing – and always with a return to The Landing’s five-star comforts.”
The Landing’s Escape into Winter package includes the thrill of a guided snowmobile tour for two, climbing a high mountain ridge for views over Lake Tahoe that Mark Twain called “the fairest in the world.” Guests also will cruise aboard a classic paddlewheeler to the lake’s famed Emerald Bay, enjoying lunch and narration as they watch for bald eagles en route.
A third Escape into Winter activity allows guests to ascend the Heavenly Mountain Gondola – just minutes from The Landing – for a close-up inspection of California’s largest ski resort, just referred to by SKI magazine in its 2014 best resorts guide as “the ‘wild child’ of the Vail Resorts portfolio, a high-energy destination for skiing” and boasting the “best views in North America.” Up top, stop for those jaw-dropping Lake Tahoe vistas from the Observation Deck and savor lunch on-mountain at the Tamarack Lodge. More adventurous types may want to try the ropes course or speed back down the mountain on the lift-serviced tubing hill.
In addition to all the fun-in-the-snow excitement, guests will have the opportunity to relax with a rejuvenating massage at The Spa at The Landing, followed by a soothing steam and sauna. The full-service spa offers a variety of customized treatments using organic and natural botanicals, as well as a special couple’s treatment room and relaxing Spa Sanctuary serving a selection of detoxifying teas. Also included in the package is dinner for two at the casually elegant Jimmy’s Restaurant, a cozy enclave with fireplaces at every turn.
The three-night Escape into Winter package for two is available for $1,389, valid any days of the week, and includes the guided snowmobile tour with two riders on a double-person machine, the paddlewheel cruise for two, Heavenly Gondola tickets for two with lunch vouchers for on-mountain dining, a 50-minute massage for two at The Spa, dinner for two at Jimmy’s Restaurant or served fireside in the guests’ room, and nightly turn-down service with a sweet treat. The three nights’ accommodations are provided in one of The Landing’s Deluxe King Fireplace rooms, including a walk-out deck and a bath with jetted tub, walk-in rain shower, heated “night light” toilet seats and heated marble floor. The package is subject to availability and blackout dates apply. For full details and reservations, visit www.thelandingresortandspa.com.

Owners of The Landing Jim and Nancy Demetriades realized the need for a new luxury resort that fully embraces Lake Tahoe’s spectacular beauty. “We’ve created The Landing out of our own desire for a five-star property located on the lake,” says Jim Demetriades. “We want to provide guests with luxurious accommodations that seamlessly integrate with the natural beauty of our unique lakeside setting.”
