Northstar-at-Tahoe is found on the north shore of Lake Tahoe about 30 minutes drive from Reno. Northstar is a Booth Creek resort and is sister to the south-shore resort of Sierra-at-Tahoe.

These guys have got their priorities in the bag with a full on snowboard friendly service. The terrain is awesome, the amount of rails on offer is beyond. The vibe is so mellow it has been remarked as a little Whistler village

Riders of all abilities are well catered for here with 73 trails spanning 2420 acres. Freestyle riders in particular are well provided for with a massive array of well-shaped terrain parks and one of the best pipes in the Tahoe region.
