The great rumors about Northstar were true! And as they continue to improve the trails, our Northstar will be our own Whistler right here in Tahoe.
New or improved obstacle transitions have been installed along several trails. The transitions have made smoother trails with better flow.
Here is a sample of the new jumps with the flattened top you now find in Northstar.
I am also thrilled with the new features on the Gipsy trail. The wooden trails are super smooth and their berm design allows you to ride them at the right speed. It does feel like a fun roller coaster! Below is one of the new features called the "Whale tail". The feature design allows you to hit it at a slower speed to get the feeling of it or to hit it fast to get bigger air. In the video below, Kristy was hitting this obstacle for the first time. It only took her watching me do it after discussing how to ride it. There is even a railing on the right side to protect riders from falling off from the highest spot. It is just amazingly safe and fun!
