Full review

When you arrive at NorthStar you find a bunch of other people ready to slow you down. Parking was congested but then again its all where you park and when you arrive. After parking you take a bus to the main resort area. The idea of this is to keep you away from your car so the resort can get you to spend money. I recommend packing a lunch and hanging out on the mountain because going back to the car here seems to be a long trip. Although the food(pizza)was awesome. The mountain gets a lot of sun bring sunscreen. I boarded on a powder day and had a blast but during that day and the next day the sun had eaten the mountain making everything icy. Lots of intermediate runs with no advanced riding in sight. Northstar is a big mountain so it would take time to discover all it has to offer. Every day is different like everyones opinions I think this mountain lacks some lodging service and its overcrowded, sun exposed, bad service lodging, makes this one of the worst resorts to dream about.
