The Northstar mountain resort and community, only a short distance from historic downtown Truckee, has undoubtedly established itself as Lake Tahoe's premier recreational destination. During the winter months it offers downhill as well as cross-country skiing and in the summer an endless array of amenities. These include an 18-hole golf course, tennis center with over 10 courts, a downhill mountain bike park, plus a recreation center with pool and fitness facility. The Village at Northstar is situated at the base of the mountain and allows guests to shop at some of today's finest retailers of mountain apparel including Burton, Patagonia, Oakley, North Face, and Lululemon. At the heart of it all, surrounded by eateries and restaurants, sits Northstar's ice skating rink which provides hours of fun for the entire family. With Tompkins Memorial Trail winding its way throughout the entirety of the resort, outdoor enthusiasts can embark on limitless amounts of hiking, running, and biking. Northstar real estate encompasses three main areas: the Village, Mountainside and the Ritz-Carlton (located at mid-mountain) and "Vintage Northstar," located directly south of the Village (see map).
