With the arrival of snow and the opening of Northstar scheduled for November 14th, there is a buzz around town in anticipation of the upcoming ski season.  There is another storm on the way    and more potentially lining up in the long term.  With this welcome change of seasons, it is time to turn our focus to skiing and Lake Tahoe’s exclusive ski-in/ski out residential community.

Mountainside at Northstar is located on-mountain woven between trails, trees and ski Runs between the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and The Village at Northstar.  They have recently announced a new long-term plan to introduce new amenities, personalized services, unique programming and luxury real estate opportunities for the adventure-driven family.

Ron Barnes, Senior Strategist for Mountainside Partners offers the following thoughts; “There is growing demand for both contemporary mountain real estate, and the ability to easily access Tahoe’s outdoors in authentic ways.  We are finding that families want to be able to step out their door and into adventures, wither it be guided by local experts or in discovery on their own”.

With a combined billion dollars already invested into Mountainside, The Ritz-Carlton and Northstar, Mountainside Partners is introducing these new facilities, expert-guided amenities and real estate opportunities, including:

Tree House (pictured above): completed July 2015, Tree House serves as the new central hub for outdoor adventure.

Tree House Outfitters: on-staff expert mountain concierges for all of your Mountainside/Tahoe adventures.

Rendezvous Experience: a planned elevated outdoor experience of the environment, featuring architecturally stunning huts suspended on platforms amongst the trees.

Mountainside Trail System: a marked trail system of 40 plus miles that connects Mountainside owners with the Ritz-Carlton, The Village at Northstar, Mountainside’s day huts, Tompkins Memorial Trail and Lake Tahoe Rim Trail.

The Zen Cube: the communities “creative think-tank” is envisioned to be a gathering space nestled amongst the trees, with windows boasting views of the untouched mountain setting.

Below is an update for the release of the real estate offerings:

The Mountainside community should see compelling prices for the upcoming ski season as the development is currently in its first chapter of their story to create a legacy that competes with premiere ski communities like Vail, Beaver Creek, Aspen and Park City.  The prices will increase as the community takes form; with the continued development of over $90M in inventory along with another $20-$25M in amenities.

I look forward to seeing you on the slopes of Northstar soon and showing you this exciting new community.
