You’re headed to Tahoe to ski Heavenly or Kirkwood—and enjoy the nightlife that only the Nevada side of the lake can offer. So book a room at the Embassy Suites in South Lake Tahoe, right on the California-Nevada border. The entire hotel is built around a massive interior courtyard and they offer a free made-to-order breakfast each morning. You can walk to the Heavenly gondola to access the ski resort. You can also walk across the stateline to gamble in the casinos. Be sure to hit up the free cocktails and snacks in the lobby daily during après ski. And if you do well on the roulette table, upgrade to one of their four Lakeview Suites. [from $109; www.embassytahoe.com]
