Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a snowy, winter escape to Lake Tahoe for Valentine’s Day. And nothing says romance like starting your day in peaceful luxury as you cozy up in your private villa at Northstar Lodge or One Village Place by Welk Resorts. You and your sweetheart can then spend a peaceful day in the stunning Northstar Village as you shop local boutiques, hold hands as you skate around the ice rink, or take in a movie. If fresh snow is more your style, you can experience exhilarating adventures together on the world-class slopes.

Why not try a romantic outing snowshoeing through stunning scenery at twilight or during an evening of stargazing? For intimate fine dining, your options include gourmet dinners prepared by talented chefs at the Ritz-Carlton to intimate wine tasting options at Petra and other great wine bars. You can also enjoy the vibrant aprés-ski dining options and events on the mountain.
