Northstar on North Lake Tahoe and directly next to Squaw Valley is owned by Vail Resorts and is the newest and prettiest ski or summer resort in Lake Tahoe and is more for those wanting a luxury family ski experience, similar to Beaver Creek in Colorado, but less expensive.Plenty of thought and money has gone into the excellent lift system, mountain restaurants, piste grooming and snow making facilities. The village was built around the ice skating rink and is surrounded by bars, restaurants and outdoor seating area with fire pits, where you can toast marshmallows or gloat over a hot toddy!!Apres ski is reasonably lively after the lifts close but tends to be quiet by 10pm.

Northstar is a perfect choice for a family ski holiday with kid friendly ski areas for the children, an excellent ski school (there is only one) as well as the pretty and family friendly centre. Some of the wide pistes on many runs offer stunning views over Lake Tahoe. Intermediates will have so much fun in an abundance of suitable terrain and there are some great steeper and moguled glades, many of which are groomed daily and which offer the chance to ski the famous Tahoe powder. Snowboarders will have a fab time too in Northstar with its 5 terrain parks.

Northstar is part of the International 7 Resort pass, the Tahoe Value Pass and the Epic Pass, so even if you are staying across the lake in Heavenly, you must ski Northstar at least once as it is easily reached by car or shuttle bus ($15pp approx) in less than an hour, or you can do a day trip by Paddle Steamer across the lake and listen to the jazz band on the way back.
