Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 22, 2011 3:18 pm

Cold temperatures, winter storms, and snowmaking efforts have blessed Northstar with top-to-bottom skiing and riding starting tomorrow (Wednesday, November 23rd). Mountain-goers will get to ski and ride 2,280 vertical feet and 75 acres of terrain, on 11 trails and 7 fully operational lifts.

“The commitment of our snowmaking team to provide a high quality snow surface, and the investments we’ve made over the past few years to improve the efficiency of our snowmaking system are evident,” said Bill Rock, chief operating officer at Northstar. “We’re thrilled to offer skiers and riders such a high quality product in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, with more snow and cold temperatures in the forecast.”

More snow is expected this week, so head over to this pristine mountain resort, located on Highway 267 between Truckee and Lake Tahoe. Early season lift tickets will sell at $85 for adults, $69 for teens (age 13-18) and seniors (age 65+), and $45 for children (age 5-12; under 5 ski for free). Also take a look at the Tahoe Value Season Pass, starting at $389 for a limited time.
