Your Day At Northstar

Northstar California

There is always something to discover at Northstar, from live music to fireworks to exploring the Tahoe landscape like never before. Check out what’s going on this week on our events calendar.

8am First, Coffee

Copper Lane Cafe is a great stop in the village for breakfast. With house made pastries, breakfast burritos, healthy power bowls, and locally made coffee by Drink Coffee Do Stuff, it’s the perfect way to fuel up for a day of fun, whether you’re just grabbing a burrito to go, or like to take your time over a speciality latte.

9am A Guide (In More Ways Than One)

Add a little peace of mind into your day by taking a private lesson with one of our world-class instructors. Beyond guiding you through terrain and helping you get to know the mountain, our instructors can help you accomplish your goals, whether you’re a first time snowboarder dreaming of seeing the summit or an experienced rider looking to improve your form. For off-mountain fun try the Village shopping, yoga, ice skating, and new this year, a tubing hill. Parents and grandparents alike can relax on the Overlook deck as the kids enjoy tubing and playing in the snow.

12pm Lunch With A View

Head for lunch at the iconic Zephyr lodge, a LEED certified building serving a wide selection of curated dishes, from traditional ramen to warm you up to custom woodfired pizzas.

1pm Explore The Mountain

Locals like to start the afternoon by heading to the summit and skiing down the East Ridge toward that iconic view of Lake Tahoe framed by the pines, it’s truly an unforgettable site.

3pm Apres Ski

As you wrap up your day on the mountain, the fun continues in the Village. Gather the group and head to the Overlook to enjoy a hot cocoa bar for the kids and warm signature cocktails for the adults. If your friends haven’t tested out the tubing hill yet, it’s a great way to end the day on a fun and carefree note. At 4pm, hop down to the ice skating rink where complimentary s’mores are served by fireside each afternoon. The ice skating rink is open to everyone, with skates available for rental if needed.
