Snowmaking underway, Nov. 16 opening slated at Northstar

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. - Winter arrived at Northstar with plenty of fresh snow at the summit. Taking advantage of the cold temperatures, Northstar has fired up the largest snowmaking system on the North shore and is making snow in order to offer some of the best early season conditions around the lake when the resort opens Friday, Nov. 16.

For those who haven't yet purchased their season pass, the Tahoe Local Pass remains unmatched in value, price and experience with access to more than 263 trails, 14 terrain parks and 10,270 acres combined at Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in California and Nevada. Ski or ride more than four days in one season and, priced at $459, the Tahoe Local Pass pays for itself, then ski or ride for free the rest of the season. Vail Resorts' entire season pass lineup offers something for every type of skier and snowboarder, including four different season pass options in Lake Tahoe ranging in price from $419 to $699.

The resort's scheduled winter season is Nov. 16, 2012 through April 14, 2013, weather and conditions permitting. For the latest snow conditions, upcoming event information, and opening day updates, visit www.NorthstarCalifornia.com or Northstar's Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/Northstar.
