If you are planning to spend a Lake Tahoe vacation with your family, there are many places to choose from and one of these which happen to be by the slopes is Northstar Resort.
Northstar Resort boasts that it has a lot to offer to its guests. Depending on your budget, you can stay in a hotel room, a family friendly condominium or a 5 star bedroom mountain home.
Just six miles from the lake itself, you can go from one side of the mountain to the other by riding one of the lifts. The resort has a total of 16 lifts. There is the express gondola, quad chairlift, triple chairlift, double chairlift, surface lift and the magic carpet. While the rates of the lifts vary, you can get discount coupons so you don’t have to pay the full amount.
One of the most popular activities that people do up here is skiing and you can do that over a 40 kilometer scenic trail. You can rent equipment if you did not bring your own and even sign up for a lesson if you want to learn how to do it.
A lot of people who were surveyed have said that skiing in Northstar is the best because the backside has plenty of challenging blacks, while the front side is well-protected from the wind. While other ski resorts in the area may have to close due to bad weather, surprisingly this place is still open.
If you don’t want to ski, you can try some other activities like snowboarding, tubing, geocaching, joining a mountain tour and a lot more. For those who want to be alone, they can go for a hike as there are over 70 hiking trails to choose from.
When you get hungry, there are dining facilities and restaurants nearby so you don’t have to go very far. These restaurants are namely Martis Valley Grille, True North, Chilly Pepper’s Cantina, The Lodge at Big Springs and the Summit Deck Grille. Here, you can have something as simple as a burger or hotdog to something juicier like a well done steak.
For those who want to warm themselves up, they can drink some free wine as there is a tasting activity done every Saturday during the winter season served with some appetizers.
The Northstar Resort is open all year round so you can come here anytime you want. In fact, some people don’t just come here to relax but also to have special events like anniversaries, conferences, seminars, trainings and weddings.
