Adapted Operations Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to know to ride at the Bike Park?
In response to COVID-19, Northstar will be opening the Bike Park to guests with limited access and additional safety protocols. This season, a smaller number of Bike Pass Products will be sold and there will be limits on the daily number of bike hauls.  Guests should purchase Bike Park Passes and tickets in advance by phone (1.800.GO.NORTH) and arrive early the day of their ride.  Like the rest of our operation and following local orders, guests will be required to physically distance and wear a face covering in certain areas such as ticket lines, loading and unloading lifts, and inside. Once riding, guests can remove face coverings. Northstar is pleased to open the Bike Park with a variety of green, blue, and black trails, and start the summer season of downhill riding.

What trails will be open for opening day?
A variety of green, blue, and black trails, including Tryumph, Easy Rider, Coaster, Playground, Speed Control and Gypsy, will be accessible for riders to enjoy on opening day.  Additionally, our Bike Park teams will be working to expand Bike Park terrain throughout the season.

What is the process for purchasing tickets/passes?
Guests should purchase Northstar Bike Park season passes and tickets in advance by calling 1.800.GO.NORTH. We will be selling a limited number of season passes to our bike park this year as we seek to provide an enjoyable bike park experience. We encourage guests to arrive early the day of their planned riding. 

Where can I purchase tickets for lift rides and summer activities? Do I need to make a reservation?

 Guests are encouraged to arrive early to Northstar the day of their planned activity. Guests should purchase Northstar Bike Park season passes and tickets in advance by calling 1.800.GO.NORTH. Tickets will also be available to purchase on a first come, first served basis onsite at the ticket office, and availability is not guaranteed. All transactions will be cashless. 

Why do I need to wear a face covering AND a helmet? 
Face coverings are required by the State of California to be worn in public. We are asking guests to take on a new level of personal accountability similar to the Skier Responsibility Code to ensure the safety of our community. Once riding on Bike Park trails, guests may remove their face coverings.

Why am I paying the same price for less product?  
While this year’s season is shorter than last, we believe there are still plenty of days to enjoy a great riding season especially by purchasing the Northstar Bike Park pass, which provides the best value for guests. Our teams have also added increased safety protocols like allowing guests to load with only those in their party and cleaning of high-touch surfaces. Additionally, given the resource demands of operating during COVID-19, a limited amount of riders will allowed on the mountain at any one time.
