JMA Ventures Announces Acquisition of Premier Residential Property at Lake Tahoe from the Ritz-Carlton Development Company, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO — JMA Ventures, LLC, based in San Francisco, is pleased to announce that it has purchased directly from The Ritz-Carlton Development Company, Inc. a spectacular ski-in, ski-out residential property adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, named as a top-ten ski hotel in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler. Located mid-mountain at the newest Vail Resorts-owned resort, Northstar California, the residences are the only true ski-in, ski-out home opportunities in Lake Tahoe. These luxuriously appointed, fully furnished two-, three- and four-bedroom mountain homes were built by The Ritz-Carlton Development Company, Inc. and will now be available this ski season for rental or for sale as fully owned, private homes for the first time since their completion in 2009. These mountain homes will enjoy many luxurious amenities and services, including a mountain ski concierge to attend to guests’ every ski need upon stepping out the door of the property to enjoy over 3,100 acres of skiing at Northstar California resort.

“We are thrilled to acquire such an incredible, one-of-a-kind property that offers an unparalleled slope-side experience,” said Todd Chapman, CEO of JMA Ventures, LLC. “It is unique to be able to offer residents mid-mountain access to a ski resort owned by Vail Resorts plus access to the amenities offered by The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. We are delighted to add this magnificent property to our portfolio.”

JMA’s portfolio encompasses some of the San Francisco Bay Area’s and Tahoe’s premier lifestyle and entertainment venues, including Alpine Meadows and Homewood Mountain Ski Resort as well as West Shore Cafe and Inn in the Lake Tahoe area; Fairmont Heritage Place at Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco; and Waterbar and EPIC Roasthouse restaurants on San Francisco’s revitalized Embarcadero waterfront.

JMA’s plans call for these luxury mountain homes to be available for the first time as full ownership, with prices set well below the pricing peak of five years ago. The spectacular homes are ideal for those seeking family friendly amenities in their second homes in Tahoe. Originally developed and owned by The Ritz-Carlton Development Company, Inc., these mountain homes are fully furnished and appointed with premium Viking Professional appliances and luxurious touches. The homes are connected to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe by a sky bridge and residents will have access to hotel amenities, including the mountain-side heated swimming pool and hot tubs, renowned spa, state-of-the-art exercise facility and access to the Village at Northstar via a direct-access gondola.
