It was beautiful. Family came to visit for Christmas and we went skiing. $114 per lift ticket, no student or local discount. Very Pricy at the Chocolate Bar went to have a cocktail and a martini was $30. We passed. Back to Mount Rose for us!

The title says it all. Great ski resort. I Love skiing. Variety of skill levels and a service friendly resort. Not a snobby place like some resorts.

Too cold of all places in Lake Tahoe Info is not obvious, we came know about sledding later on; not on the resort.

Not too much foot traffic this time of year up at Northstar. Still a few shops open and Rubicon is open for Great Pizza! Tried on some beautiful Italian boots ... too expensive but fun!

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! It feels like Rockefeller Center in the mountains. There's a central ice staking rink, surrounded... More

If you ride mountain bikes, or simply want to try, and are in Reno area, drive to Northstar for a day of downhill biking, you will be glad you did! I am a mountain biker, but my friend is not. We rented our bikes and gear, and took a lesson. A great experience! Easy for beginners, but can be challenging... 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 loung chairs and fire pits. They even come by and waiters serve you free smores!!... 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 smores!

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.
