Northstar California Resort will open the winter’s first halfpipe to skiers and riders this Friday, January 9. Located on the Pipeline trail and accessible via Vista Express, the opening allows for a contiguous, uninterrupted terrain park descent from the top of Pinball Park all the way into Pipeline Park.
“Recent weather patterns brought very cold temperatures, allowing for extensive snowmaking efforts at the halfpipe’s location,” said Beth Howard, vice president and general manager. “With the recent opening of The Islands and Castle Peak on The Backside, Northstar now offers 70 open trails. Friday’s halfpipe opening will be a great addition to the resort’s three open terrain parks, which collectively offer more than 70 features for all levels of progression.
