I agree with the post below. Not great, but had a great time. they do a really good job making snow and grooming what is possible. park is still really good and some blue runs still nice. first time here though and an intermediate rider.

I'm a beginner to intermediate skier, and just had the best day I've ever had. The comments below almost scared me off. Unless you're a pro with really high expectations, there's a ton of fun to be had up here. Snowmaking and grooming are great. It feels like you own the place.

Right now Northstar sucks. Really awful conditions. Not worth it even with a season pass.

Been here 8 years, never a warning until today and my friend got 2, before noon!!? Turns out MLK is a high enforcement weekend. All incidents they agreed we were abiding rules but "have to issue warnings" regardless. I'm dumbfounded. Around 4 groomed runs the rest are ice solid ice.

I love northstar but I wouldn't recommend coming back until after the next storm. It was either slush, ice or no snow at all. Had a much better experience the last two weekends at heavenly. Just because they have more runs open doesn't mean it's more skiable.

Not good. Snow cone or ice. Rare powder on groomed trails in spots. Backside is best. The good note is not too crowded

Blues are fine but crowded. Ok if you have a season pass. Prob not worth 130.

Better than expected. Some blues in ok condition. Probably worth it if you have a season pass. Not for $130 day price.
