Truckee, CA – After a few dry winters and holding our breath all summer, Lake Tahoe is witnessing almost two feet of snow this past week, as the strongest El Niño on record is expected to blanket the west coast this winter. Northstar, home mountain to Mountainside at Northstar and The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe, has opened this weekend, a week ahead of the original schedule.
Vacation and second-home owners at Mountainside have a plethora of new programming and outdoor adventures to look forward to, including the snow covered ski runs right outside of their front door. The ski-in/ski-out luxury community offers custom homes boasting modern mountain architecture and direct access to Tahoe’s adventures. Below, I’ve outlined full details of Mountainside Partners’ next billion dollars in investments to attract discerning buyers and welcome home owners back to one of the best ski destinations in the world.
Mountainside at Northstar, located between The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe and The Village at Northstar, just announced their five-year development & vision master plan – focusing on luxury mountain real estate and outdoor adventures on property. The plan includes new residential offerings, outdoor facilities and expert-guided amenities. A few highlights are below, but happy to send the full press release your way, outlining the next billion dollars in Lake Tahoe real estate.
