It doesn’t get any more fun than Fridays at Northstar! 

Kick off your weekend with our NEW Friday Fun Nights at Northstar all summer long! Friday evenings are all about family, friends and fun with activities that let you maximize beautiful Tahoe nights after a long week. Guests can bring the family for a guided mountain hike or cooking classes at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, then head back down to The Village to take advantage of our new Margaritas & Mini Golf special. Complimentary face painting, balloon twisting and roller skating are sure to keep a smile on the kids’ faces and the rink-side cabanas are the perfect spot to relax with live music and DJ tunes on The Village Stage. Visit Northstar California Resort for all that Friday Fun Nights have to offer this July and August.
