For those unfamiliar with Lake Tahoe skiing, there are many, many mountains. Northstar was totally redone in 2012, I believe. They even have manmade snow, which sounds unnecessary in Lake Tahoe, but was critical in the poor snow year of 2011/2012. The village is superb!...More

Northstar's terrain parks and pipes are out of this world. Pinball is amazing. And if no snow fall NS will make monster jumps out of artificial snow if needed. NS reeks of class -- village has an ice rink, surrounded by a band stand and...More

I don't love swimming through the village to hit the slopes, but, if you're not in a hurry to shush, you'll appreciate the variety of shops offered there. Once you do hit the slopes, you'll appreciate the variety of hills to speed down!

Stay in the village area along the free shuttle service. Cheaper that staying right in the village itself. Friendly and courteous staff. Best for Blue and Black skiers along with terrain areas. Limited green runs. Village is quaint with fire pits, heaters, restaurants and free...More

Can't expect too much for late season snow - slushy and melting. The resort is nice and clean and the staff friendly as always. Parking was convenient because of the smaller crowds.

This was our favorite place as far as ski locations on a recent trip. It's ridiculously expensive: $106 lift tickets and $12 draft beers, but just about every employee we encountered was super friendly and helpful, the runs were really uncrowded and the ambiance was...More

Northstar is a well run resort with a good all around set of features for activities year round. Some of your more hardcore skier/rider types will complain about the "flat" terrain, but I think that's just mythology. It ain't Squaw Valley, but there's plenty of...More
