nice backside blacks
crowded main route that funnel people
Northstar is one of the best ski resorts in Tahoe. The backside has plenty of challenging blacks, while the frontside is well-protected from the wind. While other resorts might be on wind-hold, Northstar will continue to run during bad weather.
The resort recently has gone through some good renovations that really improved the food experience, and also the crowd control (including a new high speed chair Zephir). The new skating ring is nice and make for a nice drinking spot after a good day of riding.
