The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is located mid-mountain at Northstar California Resort, and with NorthStar California opening “top to bottom” this Saturday, November 14 (six days earlier than expected), why not get your ski-fix on early?  Joseph Mattioli, general manager for The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, says, “We have received great early snow, and the forecasts in the near future certainly bode well for the beginnings of a great winter season to come.”
