Tahoe Lodging: 968 Park Hotel

A new green hotel in South Lake Tahoe.
986 Park Hotel

The boutique 968 Park Hotel is one of Tahoe’s greenest: It’s LEED certified and was built using sustainable and recycled materials (even the mattresses are EPA-approved). Access the slopes at Heavenly via the downtown gondola or drive an hour to Kirkwood or Sierra-at-Tahoe. Afterward, book a deep tissue massage in the on-site spa or enjoy the outdoor pool with cabanas. [from $89; www.968parkhotel.com]
