Northstar house description

A new gondola serving the new Ritz-Carlton Hotel and mid-mountain just opened last season. The entrance is about 50 yards from our home. You can take it free to the hotel and the hotel restaurants and amenities or use it to access the whole mountain with a lift ticket. The gondola is not really private but it seems that way because we never see a lift line.

This 4000 plus square foot luxury home is wonderful for large families or multi-family groups, reunions and retreats. Sleeps large groups. Unsurpassed access to skiing and village.


We are offering Owner-booked reservations at exceptional rates.
