Ritz Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe

Book the "Sneak Peak Ski" package at this just-opened, 5-star resort and get two lift tickets as well as your room at a deep discount; other on-site amenities include three restaurants and a spa with luxury treatments like the glow/facial/manicure "Bear Paw" -- unlike the Bear Pa, will not complain about missing porridge before devouring her.
