Northstar Resort Overview

Northstar combines the essence of laid back California ski culture with the amenities of a luxurious alpine resort. This family friendly mountain is known for its upscale but reserved vibe; long, perfectly sculpted groomers; world class terrain parks  acres of gladed tree skiing, and a charming village atmosphere. 

It is also easy to access, just 50 minutes from the Reno airport, and just over 3 hours from San Francisco. The town of Truckee is only 5 miles away and has a greater variety of accommodations than those just found at the resort. The terrain here caters to a wide range of ability levels, however, if you are looking for super steep, expert terain, this is not your spot. Long, uninterrupted blue and black groomers with stunning views abound here. After a day of incredible skiing, head to The Village for a fun après scene filled with lively bars, a modest selction of dining options, and a large ice rink surrounded by fire pits.

The Epic Local Pass is the key to maximizing value here – it offers unlimited days and is perfect for anyone able to navigate peak periods.
