From stunning views of Lake Tahoe to s’mores in the village

Your Day At Northstar

Northstar California

We know you’ll enjoy your time spent together here at Northstar, and offer the below suggested itinerary to help you plan. You can view all special events and experiences to plan your trip around on our events calendar.

7am Parking Is Easy With Curbside Valet 
Save time and skip the hassle of parking and carrying your gear with Platinum valet, a curbside service that allows you and your family to unload curbside and head straight to the slopes. We’ll have your car warm and ready for you when it’s time to head home. 

7am Reserve Platinum First Tracks
Experience the mountain all to yourself with Platinum First Tracks. You’ll head up the mountain with an experienced guide and only 24 others, before we’re open to the public. With wide open runs entirely to yourself, enjoy the freedom and peace of mind that comes with a private mountain experience, followed by a breakfast at the Big Springs Lodge with your guide. Limited to only six days per season, make a reservation online early for this unique opportunity while spots last. 

10am Head West
Discover what the unmatched Tahoe scenery has to offer. Our favorite trails to catch the morning sun are over on the West Ridge. The terrain here is accomodating for most ability levels, so your entire party can enjoy the mountain together. 

12pm Lunch at the Ritz-Carlton
Enjoy the grand fireplace inside to warm up, or sit outside at ‘The Beach’ to enjoy the sunshine and watch skiers cruise past. With plenty of comfortable seating and wide ranging menu of classic dishes, enjoy an exceptional lunch surrounded by friends and family.

2pm A Champagne Tradition
Through the wooden arch, tucked away in the trees you’ll find one of our favorite Northstar traditions, the 2pm platinum tost. Take a moment to relax on the mountaintop with friends and family at your reserved firepit, while sharing champagne and charcuterie. It’s an experience not to be missed. 

4pm Apres Ski 
Each afternoon the Village comes alive with stories of adventure shared over s’mores and cocktails. Sip a hot toddy in your own cabana while watching ice dancers nearby on the rink, and enjoy complimentary s’mores for the kids and kids at heart. 

8pm Dinner Together 
To keep the fun going, head into Old Town Truckee for an evening exploring picturesque shops and classic bars, or just stay close and cozy with dinner and drinks at Tavern 6330’, which offers local farm to table dishes and an impressive wine and cocktail list.
