Casual West Coast Comfort

Northstar continues to be ranked among the best family friendly resorts in the country thanks to its diverse, beginner terrain. Adding to its warm reputation, a wide range of attractions and activities are available in the Village. You can roller skate, relax to live music, sample food and wine and play miniature golf with the family. Although smaller than adjacent Squaw Valley, Northstar bills itself as "the way it should be" after its recent transformation from a mellow mountain to a top-rated resort. The Village at Northstar offers excellent boutiques, restorative yoga, dining venues and a two-screen movie theater.

Northstar Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Northstar Vacation

    Like many mountain towns, Tahoe has a frequently changing climate. Overall, Tahoe's weather is clear and beautiful, with low humidity and close to 300 days of sunshine per year. Situated at more than 6,000 feet, Tahoe is home to winter storms from September through June, and blizzards can quickly make their way into town. Always be prepared and expect cooler temperatures.
