Geocaching - A New Treasure Hunt

GEOCACHING AT NORTHSTAR

A great family activity,geocaching involves locating caches that are hidden around the mountain. Caches contain a treasure, usually little trinkets and geocachers test their terrain and intellectual skills by searching for caches.   7 caches are hidden around Northstar California Resort. Difficulty levels range from beginner to advanced sites.  Search for caches located throughout the Northstar Resort's trail hiking system. The only requirements are a GPS unit, trail map, good hiking shoes and a hiking trail pass (adults only 12 years+.)

  • GPS Rentals These can be rented from The North Face in The Village
  • How Does the Game Work? Cache locations are rated as easy (green circle), intermediate (blue square), or advanced (black diamond). Dial the cache coordinates of your choice into the GPS, three- to four satellites will lock onto your position, then guide you to the cache location.  Northstar-at-Tahoe™ Resort’s caches (rustic ammo cans) contain a log book and trinkets. See who has come before you and add your name to the log book, and please follow the "take-a-trinket, leave-a-trinket" rule.
