It has been a great year for snow in Tahoe and coming from the east coast- it is hard to say anything bad re: the snow and trails. Nothing compares--- My only complaint about Northstar were the lines. We skiied day 1 at a smaller resort and then on Saturday hit Northstar and the lines were moderate. The skiing was great and the back side of the mountain was beautiful.
The one thing missing is at the top of the mountain was a sub par place to eat for lunch that was way too packed and dirty.
