    Fire Pit Time: Lake Tahoe Cozy
    Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort
    It's cold near the water, but a pit-adjacent party of two is bound to add warmth. Find your chair, and your s'mores, at Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort.

    THERE HAS TO BE A MIDDLE PLACE, or a meeting point, if you prefer, when it comes to enjoying a winter-wonderful outdoors destination while being the sort of person who prefers sipping a hot toddy to schussing down an especially challenging slope. Just because you're not out there, with poles and gloves and goggles, doesn't mean that you don't want to be adjacent to all of the frosty-breath'd action, or that vistas of capped peaks don't thrill you. They do, and you might even want to visit such a locale with your ski-lovin' buds. So what's the middle point for travelers who dig an outdoorsy destination in the colder months but who want to stick closer to the indoors (though not exclusively indoors)? It's the fire pit, of course, that alfresco-fireplace-esque set-up that allows both the nearby sipping of hot toddies and the vistas and enjoyment of brisk air. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino rocks the fire pit scene, with a few experience-enhancing perks, like...

    S'MORES KITS, which are available from room service, as well as "Hot Chocolate/Cocktail Service" (that's where your longed-for hot toddy comes in, or a suggested Hot Buttered Rum). Of course, you might be a total fire pit person and love the ski scene, and that is jake. If you intend on hanging out by a lake-close pit after your day on the board, consider booking an Après Ski Boot Relief Massage at Stillwater Spa after you sign up for the Diamond Peak Ski and Stay Package. The package includes two "adult lift tickets to Diamond Peak Ski Resort with each paid night." You'll still have time to sit alongside a fire pit, at some point, or join your pals there, the ones who prefer winter with a touch of the outdoors, a Hot Buttered Rum, and lake views.
