LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! I just posted a video to give you an idea of the proximity to the ski run. The video was taken from our front window and shows our 4 year old granddaughter coming down the main Village ski run on Monday. It moves a bit slow (everyone was moving a bit slow in the deep fresh snow) but see it through and you will notice how we can see up the Village run and then down to the gondola and the Village. There is virtually noone else on the run because, since we are located right on the hill, we are often among the first on the mountain. We are enjoying the condo ourselves this week and having a marvelous time. (posted February 11, 2009)
Completely remodeled and the closest 2 bedroom condo to the Village ski run. If the skiers coming down the village run failed to turn they would run right into our building. Move in and you won’t need your car again until it’s time to go home. Northstar Village is only steps away and has everything you will need for a wonderful winter or summer vacation. All rooms are small but well appointed with beautiful finishes and furnishings and everything you could need or want. Complete with down comforters and pillows.
Beautiful stone, natural gas, fireplace. Slab granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, bar seating for 6 and a kitchen that is fully equipped for gourmet cooking and dining. 48” flat screen TV with Bose surround sound will entertain you. Also a small “library” of DVD’s, CD’s, books, games and puzzles. There is a flat screen TV with built-in DVD player in the upstairs bedroom/bathroom and walk-in closet suite as well. This is a top floor unit which allows panoramic views and no one above you.
View straight out the living room window is pine trees and snow. To the right you look up the Village Ski Run and to the left you can see the gondola house (otherwise known as “One Village Place”) in the Northstar Village. The “Village Express” chair lift goes right past our window – you can wave to the skiers as they go by or tilt the shades and have all the privacy you want. Looking out the entry end of the condo. you see the gondola passing by. Pictures attached.
Enjoy the excitement of being right on the ski slope and watching the skiers (when you’re not on the hill yourself) during the day. There is the special feeling of being on the hill when you wake up in the morning and then again in the evening when all is still with not a skier in sight. You will experience that stillness and quiet of having the woods and the snow all to yourself. Speaking of stillness and quiet, there is the occasional grooming machine going by in the night or those times when they are making snow during the night and you will hear them. We think of it as the beautiful sounds of our friends out there preparing the slopes to perfection for our wonderful day of skiing tomorrow.
Northstar also has a “Nordic Center” and “warming huts” for snow shoeing, cross country skiing and Nordic skating.
For your convenience, locker #36 on the 1st floor of our building may be used to store your skies, snowboards and poles. Your unit key can be used to access this locker.
Summer time fun includes horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking where the lift takes you up and you ride down, Championship golf and driving range and swimming. Northstar’s tennis center holds national tennis clinics. Nearby: Shakespeare festival on Lake Tahoe, Boating on Lake Tahoe, “Woodies” festival with hundreds of beautiful old Criss Craft and Century type wood boats that have been restored ………..much, much more.
The original condos, as is the case with many mountain homes, do not have central air cooling – they do have central heat. We have installed top-of-the-line Casablanca ceiling fans in each room to circulate the mountain breezes in the summer time.
You will have access to the Northstar Recreation center during your stay which includes 3 year-round spas (hot tubs), large family swimming pool and toddler pool open in the summer, lap pool open year-round, full gym equipment including free weights, saunas, showers, summer time snack bars, year-round game room (with pool, ping pong, air hockey, arcade games), summer time grass and children’s play area, picnic tables and barbeques. As of fall, 2010 the Recreation Center charges $2.00/person/day on admission.
In the condo. you will find our welcome binder listing many great activities and resources as well as directing you to our local concierge service. The condo. is equipped with carbon monoxide monitors and smoke detectors as well as folding emergency fire ladder for upstairs fire protection.
The on-demand hot water heater means you can take that shower for as long as you want and the next person still has all of the hot water he/she wants as well.

Jim grew up in Southern California. Kathy grew up in Northern California. In 1978 when our children were two and three years old Kathy's parents (living in Santa Rosa) 'kidnapped' the children for some fun at Northstar. The next year we all went and have been going to Northstar ever since. In the summer we call it our family summer camp. We purchased our first condo on the Ski Trails in 1993 and our second in the Original Village in 1997. This year, spring of 2010, we were fortunate to acquire our New Village Condo. We love hosting guests and enjoy trying to make their stays memorable. We want each of them to love Northstar as much as we do.
Kathy Dexter purchased this condo in 1993
We have loved Northstar for over 30 years. We taught our children to ski here and are now teaching our grand children to ski here. Northstar is the most family friendly resort ever. Winter and Summer!
Unique Benefits of our Ski Trails condo are: proximity to the lift and slopes, top floor with vaulted ceilings, large flat screen TV with Bose surround sound and the great lighting that we built in so that we can play games, do jigsaw puzzles and read any time we want to. All lighting is on dimmers so that we can set any mood we want from romantic to party! You can park more than one car in our parking lot! This is a great place to be with children since you just step out the door and ski down to the lift. No 'shlepping' everyone to the bus or car or even just walking through the village to the gondola. Just ski down.
