Northstar California is undoubtedly one of the most family-friendly ski resorts not only in Lake Tahoe, but also across the nation. Guests enjoy a quaint, pedestrian-friendly alpine
village with ice skating, movies, shopping, dining, Starbucks, pottery-making, live music, s’mores, fire pits and more. On-mountain, Northstar’s learn-to-ski/snowboard programs are incomparable, with terrain available for every skill level!
Throughout Winter 2019-2020 there are noteworthy changes happening:
Celebrity Chef, Michael Mina, is opening ‘Bourbon Pub’, adding to the collection of wonderful eateries throughout The Village. This “125-seat restaurant will showcase a selection of dishes described as ‘elevated pub-inspired food’ – with menu items such as avocado hummus, a truffle Caesar salad, ‘General Tso’ chicken wings, cauliflower ‘steak’ and spicy Korean Wagyu tacos.” Apres skiers can indulge in craft cocktails, local beers and wine; click here to learn more.
