Scenic Lift Rides

 

Mountain biking & hiking at Northstar is open Friday-Sunday ONLY now through closing on October 5th, weather & conditions permitting.

 

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.
