Full review

Boarders and skiers rocket down 8-mile-long runs from the backside of Northstar's Mount Pluto or carve off-piste turns through stands of lodgepole from the top of Sawtooth Ridge. While the backside of Mount Pluto offers everything from ridgeline cruising to narrow bump trails and steep crankers, the resort's front side combines lightly forested glades and wide-boulevard groomers that stretch to an expanding base area. Northstar's family programs are some of the best in North America, but it is the resort's billion-dollar expansion that is creating the most attention.
