Tucked away in Lake Tahoe’s north shore, Northstar California offers 3,170 skiable acres in one of California’s most unique settings. The resort is located on Mt. Pluto, an extinct volcano, though there’s no cause for alarm as it last erupted 2 million years ago and shows no signs of a recurrence. Along with over 3,000 well-groomed skiable acres, this Lake Tahoe resort offers diverse terrain, 100 runs, and an impressive 2,280 feet of vertical. In addition to its downhill adventures, Northstar offers one of the best terrain parks in North America, snowshoeing tracks, cross-country skiing trails, along with plenty of dining, shopping, and lodging options.
