The Village at Northstar

Hitting the slopes is fun, but sometimes you want a bit more to your leisure time and that is where the Village at Northstar comes in. True to its name, it is a little community in the Sierra that offers a wide range of activities. Perhaps the biggest draw here is the selection of shops and boutiques. You can go shopping for the latest fashions in snow gear and sportswear for the winter as well as the rest of the year. What is a day of commerce without taking a break for food? Whether you are looking for a leisurely cup of coffee, a snack, lunch on the go or a complete and filling meal at one of the several restaurants, you'll find it here.

The Village at Northstar has options for people who want something to do but either don't enjoy skiing and boarding or have a hankering for some other sort of activity. There are crafts such as pottery or candle-making. You can check out session of yoga or relax the spa, and for entertainment stop by the cinema for a movie. There are also more active choices such as ice skating or taking a flip on the bungee trampoline. The place feels as if a friendly little community has grown up here at the base of a ski area, a cute little hamlet complete with places to eat, things to do and shopping to enjoy. The final touch that makes the Village at Northstar feel so authentic and warm is the fact that people really do live here, at least for small periods of time. Much of the village is made up of lodging such as vacation condos. You'll also find Realtors with offices at the property who can help you find that perfect Tahoe-Truckee home (or second home).
