Northstar is the perfect mountain for all types of advanced skiers. Its long, sheltered trails are ideal for working on fundamentals and new technique.  The terrain on the Backside and Lookout Mountain make the transition from intermediate runs to advanced and off-piste terrain easy.  Northstar entertains advanced skiers with long sustained steep groomed runs and fun tree glades; it is also known to have the longest supply of fresh powder and lots of secret stashes well after a storm has passed.  Its also a great mountain to learn and perfect technique.  NASTC's All Conditions/All Terrain course is a step-by-step progression designed to get you off that intermediate or advanced plateau and skiing more of the mountain with better efficiency, fluidity and style. You will get in good mileage and lots of personal coaching and feedback.  At the end of the day, the Village at Northstar offers skiers an array of fine dining, shopping and après ski activities. 

We will meet at 8:30 a.m. at Starbucks in the Village at Northstar.  For reservations or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call the NASTC office at or 530.582.4772.
