Want to conquer all Lake Tahoe and Northstar has to offer but don’t know where to start? Here are our recommendations for your best summer yet.
1. Take a Bike 101 Lesson
From the minute you put on the full-face bike helmet and strap down your kidney belt, you feel ready to charge down any trail. Cruise down the easiest trails with a coach at Northstar’s Bike Park and feel like a pro at the bottom.
2. Watch or participate in Tough Mudder
If crawling through mud under barbed wire and electrical wires sounds like an exciting time – it is! Come watch or participate in Tough Mudder, quite possibly the toughest event on the planet.
3. Learn from the Pros at Truckee-Tahoe’s 2nd Best Place to Golf
If you are new to the game, mastering the fundamentals will help you enjoy your time on the course. Try a Women’s Clinic, take a 2 hour lesson, or have fun in a group lesson.
4. Hike Mt. Pluto + dine at mid-mountain
Buy a hiking lift ticket and receive a food and beverage voucher for the Downhille Grille! Kick back at mid-mountain after the hike with fish tacos or the western bbq burger, and a nice cold beer.
5. Gem Panning + Disc Golf
Come pan for special stones, gems and even arrowheads in a sluice of running water. When you’re done, toss your souvenir Northstar discs a short distance into nine colorful holes in close range, offering a perfect learning ground for aspiring disc golf players.
6. Attend the 28th Annual Autumn Food + Wine Festival
With more than 30 of the region’s top winemakers, guests can earn the indulgence through a number of creative camps, seminars, rides and progressive tastings at this three-day event in September.
7. Tahoe Star Gazing Tours
Starry skies, wine, and a string quartet – what more could you ask for? Experience the starry skies above Northstar this summer with star guide and poet Tony Berendsen, for a unique and educational night under the stars.
