Northstar California Opening Day Video
Jun 18, 2012 at 12:55
Here is a quick POV video from Northstar California's Opening day. Northstar opened on June 15 for the 2012 summer season. It was surprising because more of the mountain was open for this time of the year.

Northstar is a lot like Angel Fire, pretty bad ass. I did a chick on the back side off Northstar in the snow.

(Jun 18, 2012 at 19:56)
....yes . I think you deserve this
(Jun 18, 2012 at 20:47)

Hope to get there soon...
(Jun 18, 2012 at 13:55)
NEXT WEEKEND!!! CANT WAIT!!!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 20:45)
Me too man me too, gonna be epic
(Jul 13, 2012 at 22:52)
we should all just start splitting each others season passes. Give Vail Resorts a hit in their rising costs! Nobody checks the pass. As in when someone isnt using it let a partner use it and split cost 50/50. I know nobody is riding 7 days a week, not even locals
(Jun 18, 2012 at 18:02)
Getting Expensive to ride. Thanks Vail for taking over and jacking up prices!!!!!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 18:41)
Vail wasn't the one who made the prices go up, they spiked upwards when the Ritz Carlton was built and the new "sight seeing" gondola was put in. And that was back when they were owned by the people who own Sierra at Tahoe.
(Jun 20, 2012 at 9:39)
So why did the price of a season pass magically go up from last year?
(Jun 20, 2012 at 9:59)
FYI, Northstar was owned by Vail last season as well. Most likely because they had a terrible ski season and didn't make much money.
(Jul 13, 2012 at 22:50)
Yeah either way, prices being jacked up is no bueno! The park is great, but hasn't gotten any better really. And you cant tell me that with Vail taking over they have nothing to do with price hikes. Ritz Carlton and all that came in because of Vail's ultimate decision in making it that style of ski resort, which only causes prices to rise across the board. Big business and corporate America at its best!

My p3 and I will shred... and it will be steezy
(Jun 18, 2012 at 13:58)
Bought a season pass, will be there lots!!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 20:25)
only problem with northstar is that your legs look like a lizard cause of so much dust plastered to them. Great park tho and i hopefully wish to go to school near there to make it my home mountain!!!!!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 20:39)
Not unless you wear moto pants ;D
(Jun 19, 2012 at 7:07)
Dust just makes the ride better
(Jun 19, 2012 at 10:53)
welcome to tahoe, you'll learn to love the dust
(Jun 18, 2012 at 19:29)
It was an awesome weekend for sure, especially because my group and I were in the condo directly above the gondola. For those unfamiliar with NS that was their baby run "Livewire" in the video and there is so many more trails out there.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 16:12)
Dude nice video! Make me wanna ride those tracks look so fun and smooth to flog!!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 18:42)
(Jun 18, 2012 at 18:25)
Riley, you got the homepage!!! So sick
(Jun 18, 2012 at 18:39)
Yeah man! Stoked! Haha.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 20:59)
how did you get your chesty to be so steady???
(Jun 18, 2012 at 21:44)
I guess I'm just a steady person. Lol
(Jun 19, 2012 at 14:27)
I would also like to know - mine rattles vertically
(Jun 20, 2012 at 14:44)
Sorry but, this isn't opening day. I was there, at the head of the line. Maybe a day or two ahead for employees. Still working on doing a chick on the back side......
(Jun 18, 2012 at 19:46)
So happy Northstar is finally open!!! Hoping to go there sometime next week!!!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 15:17)
I cant wait to make it here sometime =) Anyone going to upload some footage from this place?
(Jun 18, 2012 at 18:42)
I will be over the summer, I'll bring my real camera up there!
(Jun 22, 2012 at 7:42)
Sweet! Cant wait to check out the footage ^_^
(Jun 18, 2012 at 16:07)
when will we see a legit edit of the northstar dirt jumps? that's all i wanna see.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 16:28)
I will most likely be making one by the end of the season.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 19:06)
I have a chest cam of the full medium line I'll be putting up shortly, so I'm about to get started hitting the big line. Once I dial in the big line I'm gunna make a legit edit of them.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 15:37)
I dislike my country, just a big pile of (mostly) epic shiteness for riding
(Jun 18, 2012 at 15:53)
I've ridden across England... Not too bad. The hikers to get a little pissed off when you use their trails as downhill tracks tho...
(Jun 18, 2012 at 19:10)
to much rain and sheep turds ? iv rode a few places in the uk that were just as fun as northstar if not better in their own way .
(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:07)
mmm mmm good cant wait to get up there this summer
(Jun 18, 2012 at 22:31)
Yeah AT and KJ
(Jun 18, 2012 at 23:19)
Hahaha. I was hoping someone would recognize them and point it out! Haha.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:11)
too bad the vista chair was closed.......
(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:12)
Yeah, I was sorta bummed about that. It should be opening soon though.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:52)
hopefully this weekend.
(Jun 18, 2012 at 15:23)
at least you could still ride the lower half of the vista trails if you cut across the mountain along triumph... great day regardless though!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 16:33)
yeah thats what i did all day. I just wish i could've done little trees and upper stix n stones
(Jul 1, 2012 at 18:06)
Can't wait going up tomorrow!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 15:07)
it was a great day until i fell and broke my thumb >:\
(Jun 18, 2012 at 16:44)
Going up there in 3 weeks for the first time, sooooo STOKED!
(Jun 19, 2012 at 15:06)
Taking a day trip up there in the next few weeks I'm so excited!
(Jun 19, 2012 at 11:58)

(Jun 19, 2012 at 16:44)

(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:00)
(Jun 18, 2012 at 17:28)
You live in Canada
(Jun 20, 2012 at 10:51)

(Jun 18, 2012 at 15:09)
Will be VOD in no time!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 16:26)

Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:11)
LONG LIVE EAST COAST DH!!! All this plain old dirt looks so mundane!
(Jun 18, 2012 at 14:28)
Stop talking becuase you have no idea what your talking about. This trail is meant to emulate A-line. The rest of N* is a bombed out war zone. Please come and enjoy Vietnam or Dog Bone if you think its all cruiser jump lines.
