Northstar Ski Resort Review

#1 Family Resort in Lake Tahoe

Northstar Trail Map

Northstar is often overlooked as a top ski resort in the Tahoe Basin as it lacks the expert terrain of Palisades Tahoe, Kirkwood and others, but it more than makes this up awesome Intermediate and Advanced terrain. If you’re not looking to launch off of cornices, ski the tight cutes, and hammer open bowl powder Northstar is a top destination in Tahoe.

What you do find at Northstar is perfectly manicured groomers, medium angle moguls, and awesome intermediate through advanced tree skiing. The vibe is very family oriented and you won’t get the big attitude you’ll experience at Palisades and Heavenly. In addition, Northstar has a charming village highlighted with a Ritz Carlton hotel.

If you’re seeking a laid back Tahoe Vacation for the family Northstar is a clear choice. Also, for Mom & Dad – you can take a short drive to Incline Village where you’ll find some great casino’s to try your luck and have some fun! There are plenty of lodging choices including the Northstar Village, Truckee, Kings Beach, Tahoe City, and Incline Village.
