Would you like to spend half of your day enjoying the sites of beautiful Lake Tahoe and the other half carving up turns at Northstar California? Then this trip is for you. Hop aboard the Tahoe Queen Northstar Ski Shuttle. 

The morning is spent on the Tahoe Queen, a historic paddle wheel boat that will take you across the lake starting at Ski Run Marina in South Lake Tahoe and ending at the Hyatt Regency in Incline Village. From there, guests will take a bus ride to Northstar to ski the second half of the day. 

Guests enjoy a continental breakfast buffet on the 2.5-hour cruise while listening to the captain’s narrative and enjoying the incredible views and ski movies playing on the televisions. 

Ski equipment is brought aboard the Tahoe Queen, but any essentials that may have been forgotten can be purchased at the retail store on the boat where they sell items such as gloves and goggles. 

The shuttle isn't just for skiers and snowboarders. The Northstar Village offers many activities such as shopping, spa treatment, dining, as well as many other happenings. 

After getting your turns in, the bus takes guests back to the Hyatt, where they will take the boat back to South Shore. The second (middle) deck is arguably the best après ski party around Lake Tahoe. Guests can enjoy the entertainment from Randy Daggs and Dyna Mic Duo, as well as several happy hour food and drink specials. The first (lower) deck is quieter and is ideal for families. 

The cost of the Tahoe Queen Ski Shuttle is $125 per person, which includes the cruise, breakfast, an adult lift ticket and cruise back. If guests are already set with a lift ticket or seasons pass, the cost is $59 for adults and $30 for children.
