Visitor Reviews of Northstar at Tahoe
Jean-Paul Bergès from United States writes:
Northstar used to be a gem but current management has destroyed the atmosphere. Vail resort is too greedy to improve parking, access to the slopes and bus transportation, which would certainly lead to a better rating. I love the skiing in the trees and the variety of runs is great, but I hesitate to come because of the painful access to the slopes, probably the worst in the west. Northstar used to be a 4 stars resort but in my view has degraded to a 2 stars resort.
