Hey,

Anyone know if it's going to be open this summer? The website shows that it will, but I heard through some industry sources that it won't be open.

Anyone know?

What industry sources?


Northstar's stated intention is to be open next year.

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping so! The base village is STILL under contruction believe it or not, but its a lot better then what it used to be.

My guess is yes, and I'm really hoping they fix it up for 07.

I'm sorry but I am gonna have to quote you on that. And I'm excited to have more options for lift-served DH. And the guy who poo-pooed Northstar and told everyone to go to Whistler: Two words: Geographical proximity.

ok last year kiirkwood had bikeing but it was fire roads and XC trails. nothing worth the 45 min drive from any civialisation. cross your figures that N* will be open, but u never know. that place has to way to much to the rich people.

I know but once you've been to whizzler.....well everything pales in comparison. Don't get me wrong, I've been riding N* since 2000 but I'd rather drive an extra hour to Mamooth. Better riding, better terrain and better park manegment. N* needs to step up their game to get my $$$.

I have heard they are open but then I talked to my local bike shop and one of the guys said they were not going to open so I don't know but save your movey and spend a week at mammath. Mammath is way better.

I hope it's open too, but I'm just saying that I heard from someone who works in the industry. Who knows if this may be true, but there does seem like alot of construction still needs to be done at N*.

I'd like to try Kirkwood, but if it's not worth it I guess I'll focus on Dville again this summer.
