Having been acquired by Vail Resorts in 2010, Northstar has become the “Disneyland” of ski resorts. Ski magazine rates Northstar third best resort in the family planning category. Likewise with 60% of Northstrar’s terrain being intermediate, it is ideal family destination resort in the Lake Tahoe area. 

The terrain is known for both great corduroy groomers and tree lined runs.  One of the great benefits of skiing Northstar is the Epic ski pass.  These lift tickets allow you to ski both at Heavenly and Kirkwood. 

Other non-skiing activities include tubing, snowshoeing and ice skating.
