Full review

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.
