Heavenly Scenic Gondola Ride

The winter months bring a blanket of snow that turns the landscape into a true holiday spectacle. Experience incredible, shore-to-shore views of Lake Tahoe like you’ve never seen before. Go all the way to the top of the mountain and grab a hot chocolate in the village before you head back down.
Bridgetender Tavern & Grill
Grab a bite at the Bridgetender Tavern & Grill, a popular neighborhood spot that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner right along the Truckee River. Known to locals as “The BT,” the restaurant carries a wide selection of draft beers and some of the best burgers you’ve ever had. The atmosphere is casual and inviting, and both the staff and regular patrons are consistently friendly. We love the Rocky Mountain Elk Burger. It’s six ounces of delicious, medium rare elk topped with Monterey jack cheese and their very own blueberry barbecue sauce.
Noel Nights have become a winter tradition in the Tahoe community. The Village at Northstar transforms into a holiday wonderland for the first three Thursdays in December. Bring your family and friends together for this heartwarming celebration. Gather around the 35-foot tree, listen to holiday carolers, take pictures with Santa, and ride a sleigh through the village! There’s no better way to experience the holiday cheer.
