On December 18th, 2021, a fire occurred at the Northstar Express Quad Chair lift building. As a result, unfortunately, the Northstar Chair will not be operational for the remainder of the 2021.2022 winter season. Please visit our blog for updates on the situation and information on the efforts being made by our caring and dedicated staff to keep the resort running and how we are ensuring anyone visiting us still has a fun and memorable experience.
Currently, the Easter and Tamarack Chairs on the backside are open, along with the Owl T-Bar and Magic Carpet in the base area. Young families and those not able to access the backside via the 20-40 minute hike can book a spot on one of our snowcat shuttles (see below). Those adventurers ready to tackle the hike will have help with a ski and snowboard delivery service.
