[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Every meal is an opportunity to raise the bar on the ski resort dining experience. That’s the philosophy of Northstar California’s team of culinary experts, led by Executive Chef Steve Anderson.

Nestled in the belly of Northern California’s rich gastronomic traditions, Northstar draws from regional influences and sources whole ingredients from local providers whenever possible. This approach brings distinctive flavors and personalities to each mountain dining location.

  • Mountain Table Dinner Series: Building on the inaugural season, your table awaits in the beautiful Zephyr Lodge. Start your evening with a peaceful, starlit Gondola ride to enjoy carefully paired regional cuisine with exquisite wines. Check the Northstar California website for available dates.
  • Zephyr Lodge: Our newest on-mountain dining facility, Zephyr Lodge brings a rustic elegance and elevated twist to the lodge experience. Featuring a rotating menu of upgraded classic mountain fare like hand-crafted burgers and truffle fries, Asian fusion bowls, and specialty sandwiches, Zephyr Lodge is as delicious as it is beautiful.
  • Summit Deck & Grille: At the top of the mountain, you’ll find access to multiple terrain areas, scenic views of Martis Valley and the surrounding Sierra Nevada, and the Summit Deck & Grille. Featuring mouth-watering barbecue, smoked in-house on-site under the supervision of Executive Chef Steve Anderson, you’ll find delicious dishes like tri-tip sandwiches, pulled pork and hearty chili.
  • The Lodge at Big Springs: Located at the top of the Big Springs Gondola right in the heart of mid-mountain, the Lodge at Big Springs is home to new twists on mountain favorites like the Asian-style pulled pork sandwich, the 3-patty high E3 Epic Burger and the spicy chicken sandwich with ghost pepper cheese.
