FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Northstar California*

What we love

  • A range of locations — from ski-in, ski-out to a short drive from the slopes
  • Multiple lodging options — from standard rooms to multiple-bedroom condos
  • Free parking!
  • Guests can take the dedicated gondola up to the Ritz Carlton for a fancy dinner
  • Plenty of shopping, dining and fun in the village
  • Outdoor pool and hot tub are heated year-round!

Keep in Mind

  • There is no AC; evaporative coolers are available on request
  • Most lodging does not include fireplaces; book it if it’s a priority
  • For some condo units, maid service is an additional charge
  • Some units offer covered parking

Frog Family Tips

  • Consider village lodging if there are non-skiers who want to be closer to shopping, dining and other entertainment
  • Book early! Fewer close off-site options means these accomodations fill up fast

Best For

  • Families, especially large families, that want to be close to the slopes
