Northstar California Resort

Since 1972, the Northstar California Resort has drawn winter sports enthusiasts to the area. Twenty different lifts provide access to some 100 trails on more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain. The majority of the trails are designed for intermediate-level skiers while about a quarter of them are for advanced skiers and the remainder are just right for beginners. Speaking of beginners, Northstar offers schooling in both skiing and boarding. Fun in the snow at the Northstar California Resort also includes telemark skiing, tubing and cross-country skiing. The resort also offers eight terrain parks. But Northstar isn't just about the wintertime. Year-round amenities include a skating rink, a bungie trampoline, lodging, dining and a wide range of shopping at the Village. Guests at Northstar lodging also have access to the swim and racquet club, including outdoor spas and a heated lap pool, saunas and teen and fitness centers. In the summer, a whole new world of fun opens up. The ice rink changes over to a roller skating rink. Visitors can enjoy an 18-hole golf course and there are some 10 courts available for those who enjoy tennis. Fly fishing is even available in the Sawmill Lake. And with 52 trails providing more than 100 miles of biking fun, the Northstar California Resort is the site of one of the best lift-served mountain bike parks in the nation.
