Weather in the Sierras is notoriously fickle, and it has been even more so this fall. Warm conditions and some rain in the short-term forecast have led Northstar to push back the opening of its ski season until Wednesday, November 23rd. As such, we’ll open the Schaffer’s Mill Base Camp in Northstar Village and begin Shuttle Service next Wednesday, rather than this Friday, Nov. 18th as originally planned.
When we do open, hours of operation will be daily from 8:00am-4:30pm (unless noted otherwise in the holiday schedule). The shuttle will run daily from 7:30am-5:00pm, with departures scheduled on the half-hour unless adjusted due to weather or access restrictions at Northstar. As always, the shuttle departs North Village and is first come, first served.
Après ski specials will begin next Friday, November 25th. Afterwards, they will be available Thursday-Saturday afternoon from 4:00pm-6:00pm, including complimentary Sch’mores for kids of all ages, and $3 drafts and wine & cocktail specials for the adults.
