The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe Partners with Blackbird Air

The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe has announced a new partnership with Blackbird Air. The partnership will enable guests of the resort to fly from Blackbird Air’s Bay Area location of Sausalito directly to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe’s new Lake Club, located in Tahoe Vista on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore.

Blackbird Air will transport resort guests from their private airports throughout the Bay Area directly to Lake Tahoe, landing in front of The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe’s new exclusive Lake Club. Once landed at the Lake Club, guests of the resort canbegin enjoying the amenities the waterside venue has to offer, including al fresco dining, leisure and water activities, and direct access to the lake. From Lake Club, guests can be transported in luxury mini buses to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe to enjoy the mountain retreat.

Debuted last June, the multi-level Lake Club offers amenities that include an indoor gathering area and bar, a ground-floor dining terrace, an upper-level dining deck, and an expansive lawn extending to the water’s edge. Guests have direct beach access and a private boat pier – the embarkation point for a number of summer recreational activities and water sports, including boating, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. Additional amenities include an outdoor spa, luxurious showers and changing facilities, and stand-up paddle boards. Lake Club is available exclusively to resort guests who reserve the offering in advance.
