Our Activity Pick?

The groomed runs have been in great shape as Northstar Resort continues to create snow and open additional terrain, but, if your ski legs need a day off from the slopes, we suggest meandering on the snowshoe trails found on and around the mountain. Northstar’s summertime mountain bike trails transform into fantastic snowshowing routes during the winter months, and are a great way to enjoy the forest and escape the lift queues. Snowshoe rentals are $20 at the Cross Country, Telemark and Snowshoe Center located mid-mountain at Northstar Resort.

Happy New Year!
