Ring in the New Year with your whole family, create new bonds, or get a head start on year fitness goals. At the Ritz-Carlton in Lake Tahoe, you can do it all. Share a seasonal buffet before heading out to catch live music or going ice-skating; just be sure to stick around to take in the fireworks show with your loved ones. Are the kids staying at home? Opt for the celebration taking place in The Living Room which will feature plenty of champagne, dancing, and music to keep you going well into 2016. Whatever you decide to do – or consume – the Ritz provides an assortment of holiday-themed fitness classes including Yuletide Yoga, Holiday Heat and Winter Conditioning Bootcamp to shake off those pounds.
