This season, Northstar Resort’s Cross-Country, Telemark & Snowshoe Center is introducing new events, and continuing those that have become tradition.  Enjoy a guided tour under the moonlight, join a star gazing tour or trek out on your own.

Offered twice a month from December through March, Northstar Resort’s Moonlight Snowshoe Tours have become a popular winter season tradition among resort guests. Featuring a guided snowshoe walk while the moon rises, s’mores over a bonfire, live acoustic music, hot cocoa and more, Moonlight Snowshoe Tours are geared toward guests ages 10+.  Reservations are recommended.

Conveniently located at mid-mountain, the 1,400 square foot Cross Country, Telemark + Snowshoe Center offers a warm, relaxed atmosphere including our comfortable indoor seating and fireplace, full wax facilities, a sunny patio complete with Adirondack chairs and a fire pit, it is the perfect place to start your winter wonderland adventure. If you have your own equipment and a trail pass, you can also use the Village Express Chairlift to get from the Village directly to the trail system.
