Ski-in Ski-out Properties
There are only a few North Lake Tahoe/Truckee ski areas with ski-in-ski-out properties depending on how you define it:
- A truly ski-in-ski-out property means that guests can walk out the door, put on their skis and ski either onto a ski run or ski to a lift and they can also ski from the top of a lift back to their door.
- A broader definition, used for many condominium properties, is that the property borders the ski area and guests can either ski from the edge of the property to a lift, or a ski run and then ski back to the edge of the property.
Northstar offers the most ski-in-ski-out possibilities. On the mountain there are several new ski-in-ski-out high quality developments known as Northstar Mountainside Properties. These include: Martis 25 for home-sites and new custom homes, Constellation Residences for luxury condominiums, The Ritz-Carlton Residences Lake Tahoe for luxury hotel condominiums, and Home Run, Trailside Loop and Stellar Townhomes for townhome options. In the neighborhoods surrounding the ski area, specifically some of the homes in the Big Springs neighborhood are ski-in-ski-out as well.
