Ended up staying at the Ritz Carlton which was fantastic. Wildly expensive, but fantastic. Great service, gorgeous views, tremendous hiking and some truly memorable mountain biking. Played the two golf course affiliated with the hotel both of which were a lot of fun(25 extra yards per drive certainly helped). Really enjoyed downtown Truckee which is 15 minutes away. Very funky and friendly but what really stood out was one of the best meals I have had in a long time at a local place called Cafe Trokay. Some of the most creative and delicious food I have ever had(a wild arugula soup which was insane and a heirloom tomato plate with dried basil powder and tomato jam that was so intense in fresh tomato flavor it simply stunned you in awe). Great time of year to go also; not too crowded and weather just perfect. Highly recommended.
