Northstar is absolutely fantastic for beginners trying to become intermediates. There are so many long wide runs that have just the right steepness for someone learning to ski, but who has progressed well beyond the bunny slope. Typically, Northstar "blues" are equivalent to other mountains' "greens" and Northstar "blacks" are other mountains "blues"...so, if you have some trepidation about skiing something too steep, Northstar is the place for you :)

As others have mentioned, getting to a ski lift, not to mention the top of the mountain, is really, really, *really* huge pain. If you don't have a plan for how to minimize the amount of time it takes to get up the mountain, don't be surprised if it takes 30-45 minutes to do this on a *non*-holiday day, and at least twice as long during peak times like President's Day weekend. My family and i always try to rent a condo that's on the shuttle route so that we can just take the local Northstar shuttle.

One thing to keep in mind: I don't think/haven't seen Northstar monitoring for/taking any action against "dangerous" riders (a dangerous rider being a skier or snowboarder going far too fast and dangerously close to newbies on green runs). I got hit by an inexperienced snowboarder going too fast, not knowing(or caring) that you're supposed to yield to those in front of you on greens to avoid crashing into anyone. He hit me HARD (i flew off the trail only to land back on it further down ON MY HEAD), made me want to not ski anymore for the rest of the week i was there. I hope Northstar does something about this (pull dangerous snowboarders/skiers off the mountain); otherwise, someone's going to get killed/seriously hurt and Vail is gonna get sued. (I've already emailed Northstar about this incident, let's see if they do anything about it or not).

Anyway, back to the review at hand...

Northstar has excellent snow-making capabilities. My son and i have frequently ski'ed there when it was very warm(in the 50s) and it was fine (a little slushy on popular runs towards mid-day, but it was still great/fun).

I can only recommend Northstar...but only if you've got someone to drop you off there, of if you're on the shuttle route.

Awful experience at Northstar Resorts.

I made reservations for a 5 year old group skiing lessons on December 26th. There was a snow storm on that day and classes were canceled. Unfortunately, no one told any of the customers! An email was sent moments before the class, an unreasonable amount of time for anyone who was driving there. Customers were not called. The website said they were still open. No one at Northstar was answering the phones and every option in the phone call tree ended in a full voicemail dead end and no humans to talk to. There was no way for customers to learn that classes were canceled except to show up, find a handwritten note on the door, and no employees to talk to. All of this after driving an hour in the snow to get there. The official response I received 5 hours later over email was that they tweeted that classes were closed. Obviously I should have known that Twitter is their preferred notification mechanism and I should look there for authoritative information and not their website.

I don’t know how good their classes are, but if this is any indication they’re awful and you probably can’t trust them with your kids.

This is a gorgeous location and it is a pleasure to see the mountains. Lovely at any time of the year. I love the ice skating rink in the winter, affordable winter sports. And it's a good place to spend the night.

This upscale resort and community is one of the best I've stayed at. It is incredible, from amenities, to grounds, to an extensive trail network within, bike park, and activities. It's quiet and beautiful, a gem really. We will be back!

I was a walk-in guest without reservation. I asked the front desk staff about amenities before making reservation. I was explained about all the amenities resort has to offer and it met my needs. I booked the 2 bedroom villa on the third floor in the recent renovated building. We really enjoyed the size of the room. Room was clean and had everything you can ask for. My daughter was especially excited about the pool. When we went to the pool, it was closed. When I questioned front desk about the pool, they had no idea about pool closure. Big miscommunication between staff. If I was told that the pool was closed, I would of find a resort somewhere else. In the morning we’re rushed to check out even though we were couple of minutes late. (Hotel was nearly EMPTY). When I came down to check out, I explained the pool issue and the hand sewing needle that I found on the floor next to the bed. Luckily none of us stepped on it. The front desk staff, seem as they were not interested what I had to say.. Resort is good for families, clean rooms, but guests need to be aware of any closures before checking in.

Great resort, lots of mid-level trails. Didn’t care for the whole “everything is on the website” experience. We couldn’t even buy tickets at the counter without first going through 10 minutes of buying them online first. There are no signs that mention this, so when we got to the counter, we were turned away. Although the line was quick because it was midweek, we were pretty pissed we had to wait in line again.

The trails are very groomed, not a lot of natural snow.

I like Northstar a lot because of the many options you have once you get off the lifts, and I don’t feel like I am skiing / traversing from lift to lift all day to vary up the runs. The line for the Comstock lift is always long, but you can take Zephyr (which has a single riders line) to get to the backside, and you can take backside lift back up to Comstock (Drifter is a steep blue).

The best break spot is the Zephyr lounge at the top of Zephyr lift. It’s never crowded and there is no line for the bathroom. (There is also a sitting area, but you cannot eat or take off your mask while inside).

My favorite runs are Luggi’s, off Comstock, or Upper to Lower Pioneer off Zephyr (very tame blues).

Once the free parking closer to the gondola fills up, they will direct you to additional parking at the bottom of the hill. The shuttle runs pretty regularly.

Also, if the line for the gondola is too long, take the Village Express lift. If you get there early and park in I believe the “D” area, you can take Home Run all the way down to the parking lot, but Home Run can get very icy and rocky if conditions are not good.

I have been to NorthStar a few times over the last couple years and it is my favorite place to ski in ski out.

Wait until covid passes.... It's so depressing. Everyone is going through the motions but it's so obviously substandard.

Wow....so very aware of Covid protocol, but so disappointed in Northstar. Bought a season pass and didn't expect them to not open lifts even though 6" of new/groomed terrain, to preserve the snow for weekend crowds even though with Covid, crowds are more if not worse during the week now (lines up the hill and people crammed together because they didn't open more expanded lanes). Plus the prices for food ( amost $14 for a cup of mac n cheese) and lack thereof, and lack of any propane heaters outside have left me at a loss. Plus the attitude from staff, mind you I wear a mask continuously and am very respectful of their situation, but won't be getting another pass anytime soon. Hate to say goodbye to my favorite place in Tahoe. 😪
