The Landing Resort & Spa Praised as “Vanguard of Trendy” by The New York Times for South Lake Tahoe

March 4, 2015 – South Lake Tahoe, Calif.

Recently called “the vanguard of trendy” for its role as catalyst in the upscale changes taking place on the southern shores of Lake Tahoe, Calif., by The New York Times, The Landing Resort & Spa, Lake Tahoe’s only five-star boutique lakeside resort, offers a perfect home base for skiers wanting to take advantage of the area’s recent news-making snowfall. Guests enjoy lake view rooms, skier perks ranging from ski valet to boot warmers and easy access to the slopes at The Landing, all provided in lodging the Times referred to as “stylish.”

“The lake’s vastness can be absorbed only by being there — or better yet, skiing the dozen resorts surrounding it, their trails like frozen white waterfalls cutting through the fir-lined mountains,” says the Feb. 25, 2015, New York Times article “36 Hours in Lake Tahoe.” Luckily for guests of The Landing Resort & Spa, a stay in one of the boutique resort’s guest rooms, which feature private balconies, stone fireplaces with leather chairs, marble bathrooms and a long list of other five-star amenities, also comes with complimentary transportation via Mercedes Sprinter or GL 450 to the nearby Heavenly Gondola or to the town Transit Center providing regular shuttle service to other Tahoe ski areas, including Kirkwood, Northstar and Sierra at Tahoe.

 “What continues to be interesting this season is that the climate models continue to show the next 30 days above average for precip,” says a Tahoe snow-watcher blog commenting on the recent snowfall, which included a foot of freshies at Heavenly over the weekend. Tahoe skiers who stay at The Landing will enjoy special skier amenities including in-room rental gear fitting and ski valet service via Black Tie Ski Rentals, as well as ski boot warmers and complimentary storage for those who opt to bring their own gear.

A variety of packages, including The Landing’s popular “Ski the Lake,” are also available for guests who want to bundle their fun into an all-inclusive experience. Check The Landing’s website’s “Special Offers” page for details.

For après fun and relaxation, the Spa at The Landing offers a massage designed to soothe skiers’ tired muscles. And the elegant onyx-backed bar at Jimmy’s Restaurant provides a perfect setting to discuss the day’s runs over “meze” or small plates designed by British celebrity chef Maria Elia while sipping from the restaurant’s award-winning wine list or a host of specialty cocktails including the house drink, an elegant Greek Mojito made with ouzo.

Follow up with dinner at Jimmy’s Restaurant, which The New York Times article called an “outstanding Greek restaurant,” also featuring Chef Elia’s fresh approach to Greek cuisine with wood-fired California offerings. For ideal après-ski ambience, Jimmy’s Restaurant at The Landing includes several private dining alcoves with fireplaces for a luxuriously intimate experience and four fire pits on an outdoor lake-view patio.
