Northstar is a four-season Tahoe-area resort offering skiing and riding in winter, and hiking, golf and mountain biking in summer.

For DogTrekkers, the base-area Village at Northstar offers many options in patio dining and places to sit and watch the world go by. In summer, hikers with dogs can pay a nominal fee to ride the Big Springs Gondola and Zephyr Express lifts up the mountain, where many hiking opportunities await.

Dog-friendly lodging is available at the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe at mid-mountain and at many vacation homes and hotels in the vicinity.

Why walk when you can ride? OK, lots of reasons…But both you and your dog will enjoy the novelty of a lift-assisted hike at the Northstar California, Squaw/Alpine or Mammoth Mountain ski resorts, all of which welcome four-legged passengers in their enclosed aerial conveyances. There’s not much time left this season to hitch a ride, so better get those paws in gear! more »

It's February, and Cupid is calling. Time to sniff out an alpine love nest, just for the three of you. Don’t worry about the weather, as romantic splurges are as much about cuddling as exploring the destination. more »
Lake Tahoe dogs
After checking out the North Lake Tahoe scene, we at DogTrekker.com figure there are as many dog-friendly places to stay in as there are establishments that turn away canine guests. Dog-friendly vacation rentals abound, and if you’re a B&B enthusiast, you’ll be touched by the dog-friendly welcome and activity suggestions that come with at stay at Tahoma Meadows B&B Cottages on Tahoe’s West Shore. For an elegant overnight experience, cozy up in a cabin at Cedar Glen Lodge or sample the lux life at the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe, perched on a mountainside at the Northstar California mountain resort. more »
When only a traditional hotel will do, we can suggest several, in several price ranges. If you can afford to put on the Ritz, the five-star Ritz-Carlton Tahoe is poised to roll out the red carpet for you and your pet. On the North Shore, the Larkspur Hotel Truckee-Tahoe and Cedar House Sport Hotel, both in Truckee, offer luxury accommodations with lots of extras. more »
At Northstar-at-Tahoe, just $6 buys a day's worth of scenic lift rides that Fido and family members 12 and younger can enjoy for free. The experience starts on the Village Gondola, whose enclosed cabins run to the mid-mountain Lodge at Big Springs. From there, DogTrekkers can hop aboard a gondola on the Zephyr lift for a ride to the upper ridgelines and sweeping views of Lake Tahoe and the snow-crusted Sierra. more »
