About the Resort

Since 1972, Northstar California has evolved to become one of North America's top mountain destinations. Northstar is often referred to as the premier family getaway, and with good reason–when you're at Northstar, you're home.

Located in North Lake Tahoe, Northstar California has a phenomenal blend of abundant sunny days and ample snow fall–350 inches889 centimetres per season. That's just the start, with Northstar offering an impressive amount of varying freestyle skiable terrain–over 3,000 acres1,214 hectares. Combined with over 95 trails of gentle beginner slopes to expert glades, a wide selection of terrain parks and pipes, and an exceptional ski school for children, Northstar is perfect for new riders and veterans alike.

After exhausting every option on the mountain, take the gondola up to Northstar's extraordinary Zephyr Lodge and dine while taking in the breathtaking Sierra Nevada mountain range. Once the day begins to fade, come back to a night at the world renowned Northstar Village. Strolling through the streets, live music can be heard. The lights guide the way to craft cocktails with friends, s'mores by the fire pit and skating in the local ice rink. Laughter envelopes the village as snowtubing, and hot cocoa bar stations are only steps away in any given area.

Delivering endless unrivaled experiences, warm atmosphere and rich community, nowhere beats Northstar as a vacation destination.
