The Home Run tranport lift, which takes you to the base of the mountain, runs just outside the condo and can be boarded just a short way down the hill. Northstar is about a 5 minute drive to the historic town of Truckee with all its quaint shops and restaurant. Lake Tahoe is a 10-15 minutes drive and Reno is about 40 minutes away.

Year Purchased: 1978
About the owner: I have been skiing at Northstar since 1970 and am thrilled with my decision to purchase a property on the ski trail in 1978.
Why the Owner Chose Northstar: The perfect location - right on the ski trail and close to the Village/NPOA Recreation Center - and completely remodeled and appointed residence with every amenity possible to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. It has been an excellent place for my family to share holidays and other specials times together and will surely do the same for friends and family anywhere.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: What first attracted me to this condominium was its proximity to the ski trail which means you never again have to drive to a ski resort or lug ski equipment across a parking lot and up the hill. The privacy (top floor end unit of end building at the top of the ski trail) and serene beauty of this cozy space is what made me want to make it mine forever.
