The list may be long, but here are some of the chart toppers: ice skating, pottery and candle-making in the self-contained base village, 35 shops and restaurant to frequent, some of Tahoe’s best terrain parks including Burton Snowboard Academy and Riglet Park for little boarders  numerous beginner and intermediate terrain options. Families will love the interactive fun to be had with the EpicMix smartphone app. Plus, nearly 73-percent of Northstar’s terrain is designated as beginner or intermediate. Kids will also love checking out Northstar’s seven world-class terrain parks and be in awe of the professional skiers and snowboarders hitting the resort’s 22-foot halfpipe.

There’s no coordinating transportation, everything you need is right there. There are several great family-friendly restaurants in Northstar, but the very best would have to be Rubicon Pizza Company, thanks to its extensive kid’s menu, which features several pizza options, chicken tenders, spaghetti Bolognese, penne and butter, veggies and several dessert options.
