Corridor: A Trip Down Northstar's Most Technically Challenging Pitch

published Dec 2020 - 234 views

A run down Northstar’s Corridor trail in December 2020. From a strictly technical sense, we feel this is Northstar’s most challenging marked run (other black-diamond trails feature fewer obstacles but boast much longer pitches). Thanks to its location below the Comstock Express chair, locals refer to this run as the “Hollywood Line.”

Still, this pitch is nowhere near as formidable as those offered by competing Lake Tahoe resorts. While Northstar receives a 6/10 for challenge in our ratings, this is much lower than the 8/10s earned by Heavenly and Sierra-at-Tahoe—and substantially inferior to the monumental 10/10s boasted by Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Kirkwood.

Relatively early-season conditions still existed on the day of this clip, but the obstacles we navigated stay present throughout the season.

Northstar is a ski resort located in Truckee, California near Lake Tahoe. See our full mountain review here:
