Scenic Lift Rides

Follow @NorthstarMTN on Twitter for the most current mountain updates.

Come out to Northstar California during the summer and hop on the Gondola, Tahoe Zephyr Express or Vista Express chairlifts for a scenic ride to the top of the mountain. Once you reach the top, the sky's the limit! Whether you are looking for beautiful views, a picturesque picnic spot, local wildlife or some of the native flora and fauna, you will find it here.

Leashed four-legged friends are welcome! Please note that dogs are allowed only on the Big Springs and Highlands Gondolas and on Tahoe Zephyr Express lift in the chondola cabins.
