Northstar-at-Tahoe’s Waterborne Shuttle Service

Truckee, California—Northstar-at-Tahoe, in conjunction with Lake Tahoe Cruises, has introduced a unique way for South Lake Tahoe vacationers to spend a memorable day skiing on the North Shore and cruising on the lake with its new Ski Shuttle package.

The package includes shuttle transportation on a luxury coach in the morning from South Shore lodging areas to Northstar, where guests can enjoy everything the resort has to offer including sixteen lifts accessing 70 trails, six award-winning terrain parks, two halfpipes, 50 kilometers of cross-country ski trails and much more. After a day on the slopes, guests will be shuttled to the north side of Lake Tahoe and board Tahoe’s signature vessel, the Tahoe Queen, for the trip back to South Shore. The world’s only waterborne ski shuttle, the Tahoe Queen, is also Lake Tahoe’s only authentic paddlewheeler.

The perfect complement to a day on the slopes, the Tahoe Queen is the home of Tahoe’s most distinctive après ski party. Guests on board will groove to the sounds of a live band on the tri-deck paddlewheeler with an open top deck for sunset viewing and stargazing. A dinner menu, pub-style snacks, appetizers and cocktails will be available for purchase.

The ski shuttle package includes:

Luxury coach transportation from select South Lake Tahoe hotels

All day lift ticket to Northstar

Evening return cruise aboard the Tahoe Queen from North

Shore to South Shore

Après ski party featuring live music and drink specials
