Primo conditions at Northstar for mid December. Lotsa hidden goodies in the trees. Anything off Comstock to the right or left in the trees with minimal exposure in the Powder Bowl and The Plunge.

Great snow today. Snowed in the AM, and sun came out in the afternoon for a little bit. The Flume tree area is the place to be for powder

Not too wet but heavy.  too crowded.  not worth 80 bucks but not horrible either.

Went yesterday. It was ok. Runs weren't groomed and a bit soft at the bottoms, but good it you have a pass, not worth it if you are going to play full price. One plus is that Northstar has the most runs and chairs open.

pretty wet yesterday, but still fun for first day on the mountain. trees are tempting, but not enough coverage yet. stick to the groomers.

Hats off the the mountain crew - pulling snow off closed runs to keep the back side covered with fast corn snow! It's limited skiing but it's still awesome!

A ton of snow has melted this past week but there is still some great runs open. Head to the back side and ski burnout. Perfect Spring snow. Better to being closed and no lift lines!!

Last 3 weeks flakes have entered the water supply.  Boarded from 10-1 in t-shirt. Nice groomers. Started on front and back side and later Lookout Mtn. Wax up, start early, enjoy while it lasts.

Finally a day of skiing. Missed this place so much. Didn't get to enjoy it this season but maybe this day out would at least heal my ski fever:) Love it! In spite of the conditions.

The trees on the front side are better than the back. It is worth the trip to Lookout Mountain to hit the top of Martis, piles and piles of powder. I was able to hit freshies on nearly every run.

Hit the front side this morning for a few hours.  Early ice turning to corn and mashed potatoes... spotty coverage.  Hit Kirkwood instead.

Some of the runs are well groomed but some don't have enough snow. You can see patches of dirt/mud. For the price per lift ticket definitely not worth it.

The tree runs were incredible. Nice powder up top, a little heavier near the bottom. Overall great day.
