I went to Northstar bike park on 8/2/14. It was a fantastic time for all involved. The runs were fun and every skill level was represented. The staff are so friendly and happy. It makes a huge difference when everyone is smiling. As if the cycling fun wasn't enough, their on mountain food was fantastic. Pricing was par for the... More

Great course, accomodations, friendly people, fine restaurants and watching your ball soar in the altitude make for a memorable experience.

i prefer to climb up and come down so that is not that steep. if you like the sport this is a great way to just do less work and get some help to go up. What a great idea.

Some friends and I spent a day at the Northstar downhill circuit and rode everything from blues to double-diamonds. There was a good variety of trails, from fast and flowy moderates to some jump-fests diamonds to some technical butt-clenchers. The trails were generally very well maintained, and while a few key runs were closed due to storm damage, we had... More

My family and I (wife and 3 kids aged 13, 15, 17) took the 101 course with David and had the highlight of our Northern California vacation. The experience was unforgettable and the staff was top notch and very helpful. It was challenging enough for everyone without being intimidating. One of the top travel experiences I've ever had.

Lessons are available for beginners. Trails are well maintained and well marked. Almost impossible to get lost. Staff was very friendly, never felt rushed... More

The mountain is as great to ski for all levels, providing spectacular views of the lake as well. In the summer, it is an awesome treat to rip down the trails from the top, as you and your bike are shuttled up the mountain the lifts just a few months back you were bundled up on with your ski gear....

I'm a 54 year old nervous Mom, my husband is adventuresome and my three kids are teenagers. This mountain bike park made everyone happy; something for everyone. We'll definitely go back.
