  • This ski resort and hotel complex is North of Lake Tahoe. There is a gondola which leads to the foot of the mountain from the base of the resort. Apparently has a better structure than Heavenly, South of Lake Tahoe, when it comes to weather. The day I went, it was Heavenly with all lanes closed (with the exception of the beginners) due to wind. Meanwhile, Northstar had approximately of 15 slopes open. Always remember to check the conditions of the resort on the internet, on the radio or even at the hotel before going to him, to avoid frustration. The bad section of this station does not rent clothes and even glasses (Gogol), only the ski apparatus. I had to buy a pair of pants for skiing. The location, however, is full of shops and restaurants.
