Northstar California is scheduled to open EARLY for the 2012.2013 winter skiing and riding season on Wednesday, November 14 - two days ahead of schedule (weather and conditions permitting).

Powerful early-season storms combined with the area’s largest and most advanced snowmaking operations have allowed Vail Resorts’ Lake Tahoe mountains – Heavenly Mountain Resort, Northstar California Resort and Kirkwood Mountain Resort – to open early with 111 acres, Tahoe’s most terrain and finest surface conditions, all on one season pass. And Constellation Residences at Northstar guests and owners can access all of the fun right outside our backdoor with true ski-in/ski-out access to Northstar's mid-mountain terrain. Our friendly ski valet will be here to greet you if your ski legs are too tired to move after day-one on the slopes. The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe bartenders will mix up the perfect first-day apres ski cocktail and the Ritz spa will be on-call to give your ski muscles some TLC.

Not only will the Vail family of Tahoe resorts open early, but their expertise in the art of snowmaking traditionally gives guests confidence that they’ll be skiing and snowboarding on the most consistent and reliable snow surfaces Lake Tahoe has to offer.

Northstar will open four lifts on Wednesday, including the Big Springs Express Gondola, Big Easy, Arrow Express and Vista Express chairs, giving access to Pinball, Main Street, Upper Main Street, Lumberjack, Woodcutter and Easy Street trails.  One of the beginner carpet lifts will open as well, opening up some terrain specifically for new skiers and riders.  Ski school will also open early, as well as on-mountain dining. The Village at Northstar will also be open, featuring shopping, dining and access to the resort’s 9,000 square foot outdoor skating rink.

“This last storm brought phenomenal snowfall and our snowmaking team has been hard at work to make ensure we have the extra coverage needed to provide a high quality experience,” said Northstar COO Bill Rock.  “Our guests expect the best and we’re ready to provide that, so why wait?”
