Northstar Master Plan

The Northstar Master Plan reveals the expansion of ski areas and new services that will improve the overall guest experience when visiting Northstar in Lake Tahoe.

Since 2005, I have been helping buyers and sellers with their real estate transactions in Lake Tahoe and Truckee. I was excited to join the Carr Long Real Estate team because of their high level of customer care, and dominance in the luxury market of Northstar, Truckee and Lake Tahoe.

As the premier brokerage in Northstar, Carr Long has been instrumental in the growth of this outstanding community since it's beginning. The Northstar resort encompasses 8,000 acres with 3,200 acres as part of their ski area. The Northstar Master Plan identifies new communities and improvements to alleviate ski traffic, while extending the ski terrain another 300 acres, with six new lifts.

High Speed Gondola

The plan shows that Sawtooth Ridge will allow for back country skiing. One of the most exciting additions to the Northstar Master plan is a high speed gondola that will transport skiers from Northstar Village to Castle Peak, reducing crowded parking areas and traffic congestion. New service lodges and facilities will also improve the overall enjoyment for skiers.
