Why Northstar anyway? Out of all the world class resorts in Tahoe, Northstar is not one of them. Seriously, it's pretty dumpy. Well in a ritzy way. Really nice base area and all, but the terrain is less than exciting. Squaw, Kirkwood, Sugar Bowl, Alpine, beat it all to shit. If you are going for park, then you should seriously consider moving to Summit County Colorado, or Park City in Utah, or Mammoth. Much better park action at those spots.
