Northstar California Resort

With its perfectly groomed runs that are gentler and less extreme than those of its fellow Lake Tahoe neighbors, Northstar California is an inviting skiing and riding experience for families. Northstar is built around an alpine style village that offers high-end luxury and sophistication with a laid back atmosphere. Ranked in Transworld Snowboarding as the #9 Top Resort, #6 Best Terrain Parks, and #9 Best Half Pipes, Northstar California boasts some of the best terrain for freestylers and is a training ground for Olympic athletes such as Shaun White, David Wise, and Elena Hight and home to the Burton Snowboard Academy. Accolades for Northstar California include being Outdoor Magazine’s Editors Choice Resort for Families in 2014, and the New York Times #21 Place to Go 2014.
