When I lived in the San Francisco bay area, we would come here about every other year for skiing. I agree with others that this particular resort has gotten to be too expensive and too crowded. Our most recent experience here was not good because of the difficulty maneuvering around people, waiting in lines, etc. It takes away from valuable... More

Skiing is an expensive sport, but with planning, you can save a tremendous amount. Here are some thoughts: Tickets....Vail offers incredible deals on season passes if you buy in the summer. I think a Tahoe area pass, good for 3 Tahoe areas and Vail, Co, for about $400. Seniors are less, and you get some discounts too on companion passes.... More

I ski 40 days a year and have been skiing more than 50 years. I've been to most of the major American skiing areas. I enjoyed a recent day at Northstar very much. The runs are very broad and long. Lots of blue groomers and lots of trees to ski between the groomers. The Mountsin lodges were quite nice and... More

Snowmaking = excellent Crowds = not bad Terrain Park = world class Atmosphere = horrible Vail resorts offers exceptional skiing and groomers at affordable prices. BUT, pack a lunch, bring good friends, and lots of cash if you plan on having a beer or two. If you know anything about skiing and are familiar with a "skier's mentality" and visit... More

In all fairness I should start by saying Vail does a very good job with the upkeep of the mountain. From heated cobble stone walk ways to snow making, grooming, making sure the "village" looks presentable and keeping their staff friendly. The ice skating area is nice and enjoyable along with the gas fire places all around the center of... More

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.

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!
