    Lookout Mountain

    By Tammie Thompson

    Lookout MountainNorthstar is a perennial favorite for families traveling to Tahoe. Kid-friendly in every aspect, the new Lookout Mountain just pushed up the ante for parents as well.

    Northstar has been quietly at work improving service (is that possible?), revamping the village, and the big one, adding terrain. Lookout Mountain opened in January to rave reviews.

    We had been looking up at the trails of Lookout for over a year. The kids argue whether the runs are cut to spell anything out. “N” and “D”? “L”, “N”, “D”? After a slow start to the winter, I finally had the chance to explore Lookout Mountain one day. It’s a bit of an adventure to get there. You can take Pioneer chair up or head up Comstock Express to work your way over. We opted for Comstock to get a run in on West Ridge (one of our family favorites). Down the ridge and through the woods. What’s this? A pony tow takes you across the flats and into Lookout Mountain. “Into” because this area feels different. Log signs, deep pines and lots of granite – it almost feels like a different area.

    We happened on some fresh powder and worked our way over to Martis on skier’s right from the pony tow.Photo courtesy Northstar-at-Tahoe A black diamond, the run had a nice pitch, not too tough for advanced intermediates, and worked its way through the thinned trees. Where were we going? Was that Truckee’s flats way below? A very quick trip up the quad and this time we headed off the chair to skier’s left to the Prosser trail. Wide open, with gentle rolls, the trail also has a consistent pitch before it rakes right back to the chair. Hey, we could do this all day! Straight shots, rolls, some wonderful tree skiing and even snowmaking! Prosser, Stampede, Gooseneck, Boca and Martis are all named after Truckee’s numerous bodies of water. It’s a nice touch.

    That’s what Northstar is all about. Thoughtful design, impeccable grooming, and one great family experience. “Lookout,” more on the way.
