Event Details

Experience the wonder and awe of the dark skies above Northstar California during our popular summer Tahoe Star Tours!

 

On Friday evenings, Tahoe Star Tours will meet in Café Blue at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, with the telescopic viewing portion of the evening taking place on the open meadow in The Backyard of the property. Stargazers will enjoy the personalized service offered by the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton. The resort will offer coffee, hot chocolate and water, and access to blankets once the tour moves outside to the meadow for telescopic viewing.

For Friday evening tours guests can take advantage of complimentary valet parking through The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Any guests staying in the village may ride the Highlands Gondola from the Village at Northstar to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Please load the Gondola by 8pm to make sure you're at the top by 8:15pm. Star Guide Tony will be waiting to greet you in the Café Blue and check your party in for the tour. Once the tour is complete, you will load the gondola back prior to 10:00pm.

Star Guide extraordinaire, Tony Berendsen, owner of Tahoe Star Tours and past president of the Northern Nevada Science Coalition, will lead you on an exploration of the skies.   He’ll provide an informative Star Tour Astronomy presentation, a laser tour of the stars and telescopic viewing through multiple state-of-the-art computerized Celestron telescopes. 

 

FAQs

 

What if there is weather the evening of the event?

We will try our hardest to make each Star Tour happen.  However if Mother Nature interferes we will contact guests via email and/or cell phone to notify them of the cancelation.  If an event is canceled, guests will be able to transfer to another tour night or receive a refund.  

 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

On Friday evenings guests can park in the Northstar Village Parking Lot and take the Highlands Gondola from the Village to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Please load the Gondola by 8pm to make sure you're at the top by 8:15pm.  Star Guide Tony will be waiting to greet you and check your party in for the tour. Make sure to load the gondola prior to its closure at 10pm. 

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Please make sure to bring a jacket as it can get chilly during the Sierra nights and wear comfortable shoes since your tour will take place on a dirt/woodchipped area.

Due to the group size please refrain from bringing your own telescopes. We'll have three telescopes for participants to use, including the Celestron Sky Prodigy 6 robotic telescope, and Ipad wireless telescope operation using the SkyQ to get a great view of the night sky!

 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to reach out to the Northstar Season Pass & Tickets Office with any questions prior to the tour by calling 1-800-GO-NORTH. 


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You don’t need to bring anything; Star Guide Tony will have a list of registered guests.

 

What is the refund policy?

All event sales are final; no refunds will be issued.
