Northstar

NORTHSTAR-AT-TAHOE

A 4 Seasons Resort[1]

 

Northstar-at-Tahoe is one of Tahoe’s most complete destination resorts, with lots of activity in the summer and winter.  The center of action is the picturesque Village Mall, where there are restaurants, shops, and recreation facilities.  Lodging options include hotel rooms, condominiums and luxury homes.  The Northstar shuttles will pick you up from the designated stops and take you right to the village.  The resort is just 6 miles from Lake Tahoe, 5 miles from Truckee, 13 miles from Squaw Valley and 45 miles from the Reno International Airport.

 

The ski mountain consists of two, wind-protected bowls which offer some of the best skiing around, including steep chutes and long cruising runs or snow-cat skiing on North Lookout.  Top to bottom snowmaking and intense grooming assure good conditions.  As any top-notch ski resort, this mountain offers all amenities, such as lessons, ski rentals retails shops, childcare and a number of dining choices.  It has a cross-country ski area and a new snow tubing area that is a place where the whole family can have fun.  This area wouldn’t be complete without the sleigh rides they offer.

 

Snowmobile tours are also offered.  They begin near Northstar Village, follow groomed trails on the perimeter of the downhill ski area, and enter the trail system of the cross-country center up to Sawtooth Ridge, which overlooks Martis Valley and the town of Truckee.  Moonlight tours area also available.

 

During the summer, there are swimming pools, spa facilities, tennis courts, equestrian center and an 18-hole golf course for the enjoyment of homeowners and guests alike.  A ropes course facility is available for those who dare to challenge themselves.  It also offers a summer camp for children.

 

Northstar has become a primarily second home community to affluent executives with families, who want a vacation home in the mountains with all the luxuries.  It is comprised of mostly luxury homes and some condominiums.
