Award-Winning Ski Resort Minutes from Lake Tahoe

Transworld Snowboarding magazine ranked Northstar California Resort the nation’s No. 8 ski resort and No. 6 terrain park in 2012. Located just 15 minutes northwest of Lake Tahoe, the 3,000-acre complex is home to nearly 100 ski runs serviced by 19 chairlifts. The resort’s world-class terrain parks include a 22-foot superpipe designed by two-time Olympian Shaun White.

The Village is the focal point for eating, drinking, and shopping opportunities within the resort. Its winding, lantern-lit roads are lined with stylish boutiques, a movie theater, and a year-round skating rink. Ten restaurants and cafes offer a wide range of dining options, from crepes to burritos to gourmet pizzas.

The resort’s studio condominiums are located a quarter mile away from the Village. They boast fully equipped kitchens, gas fireplaces, and decks with barbecue grills. All lodgers at Northstar are treated to a list of complimentary seasonal amenities, including free ice skating, priority spots in lift lines, and free mountain tours.

North Lake Tahoe: Outdoor Paradise with Abundant Winter Activities

Known for its beautifully translucent surface, Lake Tahoe and its 72-mile shoreline stretch across parts of both California and Nevada. The mountainous Sierra Nevada landscape attracts skiers and snowboarders who glide down powdery slopes throughout the winter. Crowds of all ages gather at North Lake Tahoe's various special events, which range from wine and food festivals to rock concerts and mountain-lifting competitions. Historic sites in the area pay homage to Tahoe's past as a Native American settlement. In nearby Truckee, you’ll find trendy boutiques and fine-dining establishments tucked among local dive bars and souvenir shops along the town’s main drag.
