Come and join Ripperoo, our Ski & Ride School Mascot, and his Ski School friends as he leads kids in a parade through the Village at Northstar. The parade will be held every Saturday through April 11th, 2015 from 3:50 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Help them dance their way around the ice rink. Meet at the Kid’s Ski School entrance a little before 3:50 p.m. to participate. No need to bring anything but a smile!
Enjoy a Sunday worship service in the fresh air and beautiful mountain setting by joining us on Sundays this winter from December 21 through April 5 (Easter Sunday) for interdenominational worship services sponsored by Tahoe Resort Ministries and Northstar California. All services will take place on the mountain at the top of the Vista Chair Lift at the Cross at 2:00 p.m. and will last between 15 and 20 minutes. All are welcome!
Join is for our Spring It On! activities taking place Saturdays, April 4 and April 11; and Sunday, April 12.
On these days, we will have complimentary face painting, a balloon artist and a DJ spinning your favorite hits on the Day Lodge Deck from 11am – 2pm.
Please note: For 2015, the Pond Skim has been canceled. Northstar continues to offer the best-quality spring ski experience to guests, and the snow (that would have been used to build the pond skim) will be a great resource for keeping the largest-possible variety of trails open with great conditions, which is a huge benefit to our guests. We’re open all the way to the top, all major lifts are open, and more than 50 terrain park features are available throughout three parks.
