Northstar is a fantastic mountain with a really great village. I absolutely love the place. One thing, though. Currently since we haven't had snow in over two weeks the coverage is very bare. They do a good job of marking runs that have bare coverage, but some of these runs should be closed. I think they don't do this because they would have to report that fewer runs are open, and what resort wants that? Instead you have to pay the price when you get your skis repaired. Hopefully February will be a better month because when there is snow this place rocks.
