Après at Northstar: The Essence of Joy

Après is a versatile term, a French word meaning “after.” Used in the parlance of our times, not to mention our region, it implies enjoyment of life through socializing and merry-making, but only after an activity has been completed. In this case, the activity is skiing, and ski we do. How one goes about enjoying her après can be as personal as how she goes about ordering her latte. Lucky for she who happens to be so particular that the resort at Northstar, California rolls out a daily variety of après offerings from 3-6 PM right in the heart of the Village.

The Holidays: Nobody Does it Like Northstar — by Nick Cisik

This month, over the weekend of November 16th, Northstar will kick the season off by hosting its Welcome to Winter celebration. This will include family sleigh rides, complimentary family photos, face painting, holiday sales, and interactive balance demonstrations with the Burton Academy. This action-packed weekend will be one not soon forgotten. Then, on the 29th, the first official Silent Night will be held at the Village ice-skating rink. Skates will be available to rent as well as headphones. Skaters can listen to that evening’s Christmas movie projected on the big outdoor screen. Participants will also have the option of switching over to a station playing a selection of timeless holiday tunes. Ice-skating while listening to Bing Crosby’s rendition of Silent Night? That’s a fine recipe for merrymaking.
