What is there to do?

Kids - do you love the snow? Making snowmen, trying out those skis, maybe even trying a snowboard (it's like skateboarding but on snow!)....NorthStar Resort has all of your snow adventures.

If there are kids who are new to the snow sports, it's best for them to get some professional pointers before they try it for themselves. NorthStar Resort offer skiing and snowboarding lessons for anyone 3 years old and up. If you are a complete novice, or advanced but want to brush up on some skills, then the lessons can cater for you! 

There are also a number of route options so kids, you can start on the ones for the novice then work your way up to the advanced! It's also a great way for kids to see how the are improving!

Want to try something different to skiing and snowboarding? How about snow tubing! For kids over 42" they can try snow tubing! Want to experience something fun as a family? Then how about some adventurous mountain tours or the icy ice skating?

Ready for playtime? Head on over to the two fun park areas where there is fun and play for the kid's amusement, as well as skill development with gentle terrain features. 

Need more? Just ask! There are amazing family summer activities too, like mountain biking, rock climbing and hiking.

So for your all year round mountain adventure, head on over to NorthStar Resort….on your marks…get set….and SKI!
