The resort is under Covid protocol but this will not affect your enjoyment of the acres of slopes at this fantastic mountain .I particularly enjoyed the roughly 1.5 miles vertical on groomed terrain on the front side of the mountain (great for those that need a gentler pace)but treed skiing and moguls are definitely there for the taking. A high speed quad chair ensures that you will get to your next run in good time. You can pick up lunch and dinner at the Buckhorn & Main restaurant. There is an online procedure for most ticket purchases but my half day pass was purchased same day at their ticket office. Recommended!
I would have liked to give this place a 5 star but there was a few issues. The garage door opener didn’t work, it did get fixed 3 days in after we called. Also, we only found out one week prior that the pool would be closed, big bummer. Finally, the hot tub maintenance company came to change out the water 2 days into our stay, drained it then didn’t return 😳. Luckily, all these issues got handled promptly once we reached the manager. Pros, great space, great deck with magnificent views and unit had all amenities. We will likely return.
These condos are so nice, and the hot tub was an amazing touch! So much space for a large group and very reasonably priced for being ski in/ski out or very close to it. Our condo was in a location that it was easier to walk to the lift, but the skiers and boarders were able to ski right to the back of our condo. I recommend it!
Northstar Mountain Village Resort is a dream for those looking to combine skiing & relaxation into a fun filled family winter escape. We have 2 daughters 11 & 15 who share our passion to ski but as they grow older the thought of getting up in the morning to drive to a resort, wait in ticket lines or hike back to the car at the end of the day is becoming less appealing. We know we only have a few more years left before they won’t want to be away for a week with us but something miraculous happened this year! After spending many years in Banff/Canmore we had a reservation fall though at the last minute and started frantically looking for available accommodations. With Christmas upon us and only a few days before we were supposed to leave we contacted numerous Resorts in both AB and BC looking for last minute vacancy. Almost like a Christmas miracle we stumbled upon a resort with limited vacancy remaining that offered: - 2 or 3 Bedroom Ski In/Out on Hill Accommodations - Fireplace and large living area with separate TV in Master Bedroom - Private Hot Tub & BBQ on your deck - In suite personal washer/dryer - Clubhouse with small Exercise Facility, Outdoor Pool & Hot Tub (heated in winter) We spent 8 days here in a bottom level 2 bedroom Unit (F2) and there was no complaining about long drives to the hill, line ups at lunch time (we could stop at our condo for lunch and rest via T-Bar) and the tiring walks back to the car were replaced by the excitement of who could be first on back and into the Hot Tub while Dad BBQ’d dinner and mom figured out what games we could play or movies we could watch in the evening. (Wide selection of DVD’s at main office) The facility was immaculate, staff were friendly and the Northstar Mountain Village will not disappoint. A special thank you to Jesse and his entire team for pulling everything together for our family with short notice. Our Ski Vacation one of the most memorable as our girls asked when we left...”When can we go back?”...something every parent loves to hear especially from kids aged 11 & 15! All the best in 2020 everyone! The “Cookes”! …
Kimberley is a stunning area and the staff at North Star Mountain Village were so friendly and helpful. The people in Kimberley are incredible and make the experience that much more enjoyable. When we were at the resort, Kate went above and beyond, thank you for being so kind and accommodating!
