‪Amazing. For a beginner family (12 year old and 10 year old, with mom and dad who have not been skiing in quite awhile) this was perfect. There are a few long greens. If you stay at the ritz, you rent skis and lift tickets online in advance from epic pass. It’s extremely intuitive and easy to be fitted for skiing and the hotel takes care of everything for you. Each day that you’d like to go skiing, you simply walk down to the skiing concierge, exchange your shoes for your ski boots, walk outside where you are handed your skis. When finished, you reverse these actions, handing in your skis and boots for your shoes. The greens are extensive and completely reasonable for a two to three day beginner vacation. It couldn’t be better. If you look at a trail map, you’ll see the three to four day progression. You start with the first chair lift right outside of your hotel. You progress to the arrow chairlift, still green, but a little more aggressive. Finally, you progress to the vista chairlift. Still green, just a little longer and a little more aggressive. On this trail there is a small detour “cascades” that is a perfect first-time blue experiment that is short. We stayed on these three chairlifts, right outside of the ritz, for 4 days. You can easily ski the multiple green trails for your entire family vacation. This is not 100 yds of beginning skiing, it is several wide long runs that are well worth your time. Our final “graduation” after feeling comfortable on all of these green runs for two to three days was the east ridge blue run. This is the top of the mountain, with an essentially green run with beautiful views that has a brief blue run at the very end. If you take the east ridge run to the very end, there is a short blue drop off at the far end dropping you back to green. Anyway, my point is that this is a fantastic family ski vacation. Northstar is absolutely the way to go, and if the ritz is on your radar, zero complaints and nothing but compliments from me. I could tell that my family was casually dropping hints the entire time that they’d love to return. If you have more advanced skiers in your party, there are plenty of options for them, but this mountain also has plenty of space for learners and cruisers. In a nutshell, if your are considering a ritz stay and wondering if your beginner to intermediate family (with one crazy cousin who needs a half-pipe) would like this vacation…don’t hesitate. It’s perfect.‬

‪We spent three days at Northstar and skied on two of those days. Since we are new at the sport, we took half-day, group lessons on two mornings. Max from Mid-Mountain Ski & Snowboard School was fantastic!! No snow in Tahoe since December, but the runs were groomed, and as beginners, we had no complaints. We loved the longer green runs. ‬

‪Way too crowded the past couple weekends to the point of almost being unsafe... not enjoyable.

Experts ruin it for the beginners and zoom around causing accidents. Along with untamed children running around everywhere. Absolute zoo. Poor food to boot.‬

‪Northstar is one of the prettiest ski areas in the Tahoe area, great for beginners and active intermediates, the slopes are not as challenging for expert skiers as Squaw (I will never call it Palisades!) or Heavenly. The location is easy for people staying on the North Shore or in Truckee, the runs are immaculate and the village is very pretty.

But the resort owners are getting greedy. A lift ticket is already over $130 for a SENIOR or a TEEN, and then they gouge you with $25/day parking unless you want to wait for a shuttle from the hinterlands. A "cup of soup" sized bowl of vegetarian chili is $16!! And a locker is $15 to rent. We are already paying premium to ski, and it feels like consumer rape with the resort charging these exorbitant fees.
Otherwise we had a wonderful ski day in January, with great snow, blue skies and warm enough to ski without a jacket.‬

‪Northstar is absolutely fantastic for beginners trying to become intermediates. There are so many long wide runs that have just the right steepness for someone learning to ski, but who has progressed well beyond the bunny slope. Typically, Northstar "blues" are equivalent to other mountains' "greens" and Northstar "blacks" are other mountains "blues"...so, if you have some trepidation about skiing something too steep, Northstar is the place for you :)

As others have mentioned, getting to a ski lift, not to mention the top of the mountain, is really, really, *really* huge pain. If you don't have a plan for how to minimize the amount of time it takes to get up the mountain, don't be surprised if it takes 30-45 minutes to do this on a *non*-holiday day, and at least twice as long during peak times like President's Day weekend. My family and i always try to rent a condo that's on the shuttle route so that we can just take the local Northstar shuttle.

One thing to keep in mind: I don't think/haven't seen Northstar monitoring for/taking any action against "dangerous" riders (a dangerous rider being a skier or snowboarder going far too fast and dangerously close to newbies on green runs). I got hit by an inexperienced snowboarder going too fast, not knowing(or caring) that you're supposed to yield to those in front of you on greens to avoid crashing into anyone. He hit me HARD (i flew off the trail only to land back on it further down ON MY HEAD), made me want to not ski anymore for the rest of the week i was there. I hope Northstar does something about this (pull dangerous snowboarders/skiers off the mountain); otherwise, someone's going to get killed/seriously hurt and Vail is gonna get sued. (I've already emailed Northstar about this incident, let's see if they do anything about it or not).

Anyway, back to the review at hand...

Northstar has excellent snow-making capabilities. My son and i have frequently ski'ed there when it was very warm(in the 50s) and it was fine (a little slushy on popular runs towards mid-day, but it was still great/fun).

I can only recommend Northstar...but only if you've got someone to drop you off there, of if you're on the shuttle route.‬

‪Awful experience at Northstar Resorts.

I made reservations for a 5 year old group skiing lessons on December 26th. There was a snow storm on that day and classes were canceled. Unfortunately, no one told any of the customers! An email was sent moments before the class, an unreasonable amount of time for anyone who was driving there. Customers were not called. The website said they were still open. No one at Northstar was answering the phones and every option in the phone call tree ended in a full voicemail dead end and no humans to talk to. There was no way for customers to learn that classes were canceled except to show up, find a handwritten note on the door, and no employees to talk to. All of this after driving an hour in the snow to get there. The official response I received 5 hours later over email was that they tweeted that classes were closed. Obviously I should have known that Twitter is their preferred notification mechanism and I should look there for authoritative information and not their website.

I don’t know how good their classes are, but if this is any indication they’re awful and you probably can’t trust them with your kids.‬

‪This is a gorgeous location and it is a pleasure to see the mountains. Lovely at any time of the year. I love the ice skating rink in the winter, affordable winter sports. And it's a good place to spend the night.‬

‪This upscale resort and community is one of the best I've stayed at. It is incredible, from amenities, to grounds, to an extensive trail network within, bike park, and activities. It's quiet and beautiful, a gem really. We will be back!‬

‪I was a walk-in guest without reservation. I asked the front desk staff about amenities before making reservation. I was explained about all the amenities resort has to offer and it met my needs. I booked the 2 bedroom villa on the third floor in the recent renovated building. We really enjoyed the size of the room. Room was clean and had everything you can ask for. My daughter was especially excited about the pool. When we went to the pool, it was closed. When I questioned front desk about the pool, they had no idea about pool closure. Big miscommunication between staff. If I was told that the pool was closed, I would of find a resort somewhere else. In the morning we’re rushed to check out even though we were couple of minutes late. (Hotel was nearly EMPTY). When I came down to check out, I explained the pool issue and the hand sewing needle that I found on the floor next to the bed. Luckily none of us stepped on it. The front desk staff, seem as they were not interested what I had to say.. Resort is good for families, clean rooms, but guests need to be aware of any closures before checking in.‬

‪Great resort, lots of mid-level trails. Didn’t care for the whole “everything is on the website” experience. We couldn’t even buy tickets at the counter without first going through 10 minutes of buying them online first. There are no signs that mention this, so when we got to the counter, we were turned away. Although the line was quick because it was midweek, we were pretty pissed we had to wait in line again.

The trails are very groomed, not a lot of natural snow.‬
