Start your day by enjoying a cup of coffee while overlooking majestic 18.5-mile-long Gore Creek in the valley below. Put on your gear and venture out to Vail Resort for a day of skiing or boarding. A VIP parking pass is included.
Before you head to the mountain, you can catch a breakfast at The Little Diner (try the German pancakes) or Northside Coffee & Kitchen (famous for its doughnuts). When you are ready to refuel after your ski day, you have loads of dining options. If you are in the mood for a casual lunch or dinner, Mountain Standard and Alpenrose are both local and visitor top picks. Treat yourself to gourmet pleasures at restaurants only 10 minutes away from your residence that include Elway’s, Sweet Basil, Matsuhisa, La Tour Restaurant and WYLD (located in The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch).
If the Equity Platinum Fund home is not a right fit, you can choose from a selection of residences available to you as an Equity Residence’s investor through ThirdHome.

Lake Tahoe is another top-tier ski destination. Resting on the California-Nevada border, Lake Tahoe is renowned for its deep blue water that stays cold throughout the year. It is the largest alpine lake in North America, and it is surrounded by a breathtaking landscape that draws visitors to it year-round.
While the magnificent blue lake alone is worth a visit, the Lake Tahoe surrounding area boasts miles of hiking trails, tons of exhilarating vistas and some of the best skiing slopes in North America.
Situated between in the Mountainside community in the NorthStar Resort below the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Equity Residences’ ultra-modern mountain home offers the ultimate ski resort convenience – a ski-in/ski-out location with breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
