Northstar, located in Truckee, Calif., is yet another mountain in the Lake Tahoe area that leaves families marveling after every visit. It is equipped with 3,170 skiable acres, 97 trails, 20 lifts, and a vertical drop of 2,280 feet. There are four on-mountain dining options, allowing families to grab a quick bite without unbuckling their boots. There is also Minors’ Camp Child Care for the little ones ages 2 to 6 who aren’t quite old enough or ready to start skiing just yet. Or, if you’re ready for your kiddies to hit the slopes, introduce them to one of the mountain’s many ski and snowboard school options, including private and group lessons.
Reminisce at the end of each day over a delicious meal at one of the restaurants located within the Village at Northstar, like Rubicon Pizza Company which offers patrons family-style Italian meals.
