Northstar 4/4/17
« on: 04/04/17, 09:44 PM »

Uncrowded spring day at a pretty flat and over priced resort.

$6.50 for a 20 ounce Gateraid...Thanks Vail Resorts!

You are in the storm area of Lake Tahoe starting Thursday.

Northstar parking lot was were we parked at the end of Home Run trail. The worst thing at Northstar was having the bus drop you off at the Village. Then you have a loooooong walk past all the shops until you will you get to the Village Express or Big Springs lifts. We used to use the "wagons" to carry our skis and poles.  Smiley

The Epic Local pass should be a good deal next season.

Skied Northstar once...but only cause it was end of season free day...hope thats why you went there....but we got lucky that every other place else we skied was spring fun...pretty much agree with every other comment posted....we used to go to Tahoe in the middle of April for years...before the big dry spell...got sun, got powder snow storms, got fun, got gambling, got views....got plain fun...I do love the Tahoe area.
