On the forefront of everyone’s mind is the question of when we are going to get one of our famous five foot Sierra snowstorms.  Mother Nature has not cooperated in providing the heavy snow winters that we are accustomed to, but this cycle will change and our incredible snow pack will return eventually (have faith)!  In the meantime, take comfort in knowing that no matter what the weather looks like in town, at the lake, or in Martis Valley, it is ALWAYS winter at Northstar.  Their snowmaking technology is among the best, and Northstar’s 140 snow guns, which are capable of producing up to 2 feet of snow per hour, are working hard on all of the 790+ snow making locations around the mountain. My favorite thing about Northstar Resort is that there is always a beautiful blanket of freshly groomed snow awaiting, regardless of natural snowfall levels.

Perhaps one of the best things about Northstar is that skiing is only one of the reasons to visit.  This past weekend I was reminded of how The Village at Northstar is a perfect destination for all ages and interests.  I took my three year old son skiing (I was impressed to see that he made some turns through cones, he will be passing me up in no time!) while my wife enjoyed a hot cocoa by the fire pits with our four month old son.  After skiing when we came back down to The Village, we enjoyed lunch outdoors together and soaked in the sunshine before making s’mores and watching the ice skaters.  I gave my wife a much needed break from the boys while she perused the many amazing shops in The Village.  At the end of a wonderful family day, my wife and I took advantage of having our folks in town to watch the kiddos while we enjoyed dinner at Mikuni Sushi and a movie at the Northstar Cinema… a perfect vacation right here in our hometown!

Real Estate Pick of the week: Recently Reduced at Mountainside Northstar

My real estate pick of the week is in the Trailside community located Mountainside Northstar.  Trailside is just steps from The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and now includes access to Mountainside’s new amenity- Tree House.  This stunning townhome was recently reduced $145,000 in price to $1,950,000.  I am often asked about the “best deal” in Northstar, and this is certainly it.  This townhome is fully furnished and could easily be listed around $2.3M.  However the sellers are motivated, and I have full confidence that there is a family out there who willbe very excited to join the Mountainside community at a below market cost.  Here is some detail on the residence:
Trailside offers high-end luxury living with spectacular views of the Carson Range.  No expense was spared on the finish details and appliance package. Experience the best of both mountain and modern living in this 3 story, dual master residence. With ski trail access right around the corner and a private hot tub/fire pit to take in the alpenglow at dusk, this home provides the mountain lifestyle we all fantasize about.
