Cross Country, Telemark, Snowshoe & Fat Bike Rentals + Lessons

The Cross Country, Telemark + Snowshoe Center is located at mid-mountain next to the Vista Express chairlift. To access the Cross Country, Telemark + Snowshoe Center, swing by the Season Pass Office located in the Village at Northstar and purchase a trail pass, then head over to the Big Springs Gondola for your ride to mid-mountain. From the top of the Gondola, turn left and walk approximately 150 yards over to the Center perched on the hill above the Vista Express. Equipment rentals, lessons, and packages may all be purchased at the Cross Country, Telemark + Snowshoe Center.

If you have your own equipment and a trail pass, you can also use the Village Express Chairlift to get from the Village directly to the trail system. Please call us at 530.562.3270 for more information or to book private lessons.
