Northstar has everything right there...it's pretty cool to have ice-skating rink, bungee playground, restaurants, shops, etc. so accessible. Gets crowded and is pricey, but really enjoyed the access to everything, especially the gondola trip to the top of the mountain.

Have skied there many, many days. A well thought-out mountain with an upscale feel to it. Great village and on-snow amenities and restaurants. As a local, I have multiple options for great skiing. Northstar does a fine job of snow-making and grooming - far better than most! It is also lower and therefore catches drizzle when surrounding mountains are getting... More

It has starbuck, various restaurants, the gondolas up the mountain to hike or bike in the summer. The staff is very friendly. We loved going for the hikes with our 5 year old, with the Northstar staff leading the way. We discovered lots of wonderful places we never knew were there. We LOVE coming to ski in the winter but...

Northstar is a family destination with so very many different things to do. Having everything on site is a bonus. Summer and winter time at Northstar is a dream. Kids young and old are busy and have a great time. We spend time here year round even without typical summer or winter activities. Hikes and peaceful surroundings are alway waiting... More

Stayed in a rental condo and did the adult and kids tennis camps. Planned well in advance for tennis camps and rental. Really wanted to experience summer time in the Lake Tahoe area, just happened to choose the tennis camps at Northstar and really glad we did.

Whether you ski or bike or just like to go out for a great meal and shop, the Northstar offers a beautiful village with plenty of activities. There is live music many weekends, ice skating in the winter and roller skating in the summer -- free if you have your own skates.
