In the tubing area, tubes and riders are transported by tow lift to the top of the hill. Tubing is located mid-mountain just above the Gondola. Tickets can be purchased at the Tubing Center or any Northstar ® Resort ticketing location and highly recommended for weekends. Must be over 36" to ride the tubing hill.
Northstar is one of the nicest resorts in Tahoe to be sure, but also one of the spendiest. The tubing was fun, and especially nice to have the rope tow. The skiing/riding instruction was very good! My son's 1st snowboarding experience was here. His riding instructor had him on the big lift the first day (mind you he's been skiing since he was 3, but still I was happy that he was willing to analyze his level and adjust accordingly). While the kids are in lessons, and if you're not on the slopes yourself, there is a plethora of activities from wine tasting, to shopping, to coffee, spa treatments, to fine dining. My favorite part was lounging on the cushy couches in front of the fireplaces next to the ice rinks. Ungh...bliss.
