Ski Resort Information by Lake Tahoe Vacation Rentals at South Lake Tahoe

Presented by Accommodation Tahoe

NORTHSTAR, located north of Lake Tahoe and west of Reno, is a well-planned, aesthetic recreational complex. In addition to the ski resort, there are two golf courses and other recreational facilities. The area is noted for sunshine, excellent grooming, terrific novice/children's runs, and some of the best bump runs at Lake Tahoe. From the top of Mt. Pluto you can see Squaw Valley Ski Resort to the west and Lake Tahoe to the south. We have always appreciated parking lot shuttles and short/non-existent lift lines on the expert runs at Northstar. There is a solid emphasis on aesthetics at this Tahoe ski resort!

Northstar's typical season is late November to early May. Its a great family ski resort with a large comfortable lodge at the top of the first lift (Big Springs) and lots of facilities in the village base.

NORTHSTAR-AT-TAHOE SKI RESORT Map by Accommodqation Tahoe

You face southwest in this artist's image. Lake Tahoe is to the south and appears in the upper left of this image.  

The mountain is forested from top to bottom. The front side, stretching from the Northstar Village base at the lower left to the top of Mt. Pluto in the upper center, is mostly beginner and intermediate territory. There is limited front-side expert terrain at the very top and along the ridge - note the black diamonds in the image. However, the back side (to the right of Mt. Pluto in the image below) has a series of parallel runs with great moguls and 2000 vertical feet of fall-line skiing. While the front is groomed regularly, the groomers roll the backside runs in rotation so you can pick the size and type of bumps you like! As a bonus, the back side's high-volume lift never gets crowded!

Northstar has added new trails and a detachable lift on Lookout Mountain at the center of this map. Intermediate skiers can handle these runs when they're groomed. In our experience, Lookout has zero lift lines even on crowded days.
