|About these ratings|
Although it's significantly smaller than Squaw Valley or the Heavenly Resort — boasting a mere 3,170 acres and around 100 runs — Northstar California Resort is often rated among the top ski resorts in the West. In fact, Northstar had to construct an "express gondola" to accommodate the number of people who couldn't wait to hit the slopes.
Other Northstar activities include swimming, ice skating and snowshoeing. Also, youngsters can have the time of their lives on the kid-friendly slopes and the rides found at the Jib and Mineshaft Adventure Parks. After a long day on the slopes (or the trails or the rink or the poolside), catch up on your R&R with some time at the spa.
The resort sits on the northern shore of Lake Tahoe just about 6 miles southeast of Truckee. Lift operation times vary depending on the day and season. For more information, including lift ticket prices, specials and trail maps, check out Northstar's website.
