Scout loves

  • A great selection of well-priced condos scattered throughout the Northstar Mountain area. 
  • ‘Village Rooms’ are situated in a building that’s right in the heart of the village – providing convenient access to restaurants, shops and ski slopes. 

Scout tips

  • There are a selection of different condo complexes in varying locations around Northstar Village. Some are closer to the action than others, but most require a shuttle bus to access the village. Some might have ski-in ski-out access.
  • Guests can pay $2 for access to a recreation centre located below the village, where there’s a pool, outdoor hot tub and gym.
  • All condos are individually owned and furnished.
  • A $10 resort fee is charged per night.


There are two main categories in this collection of properties managed by Northstar Resort, with the main differences being size and proximity to the village.

The ‘Village Room’ category will satisfy those looking for a simple hotel room without the need for cooking facilities. The beauty of these rooms is their location – right on the edge of Northstar Village. This position gives skiers quick access to the slopes, and is within stumbling distance of all the village’s great apres options. Or if shopping is more your thing, you’ll find plenty of options to keep you happy – right at your doorstep.

Alternatively, there are a number of condos and studio apartments that are located in different buildings around the mountain. Most are just far enough away to require a shuttle service to the village (especially at night). Northstar Resort runs free shuttles on a constant loop that don’t take long to get you to your destination – since all the properties are within a 10 minute drive to the village.

Since the condos and studios are individually owned, the furnishings will vary in quality, however all rooms are comfortable, homely and clean.

While you can’t book specific condos directly, you can always make a request in Scout’s booking form for a particular property (except for the studios – all of which are located in Aspen Grove). Each property offers a different advantage:

  • Ski Trails: Located just above the village, some of these condos have ski-in ski-out access, making it convenient to get to the gondola base in the morning.
  • Aspen Grove: This collection of buildings is situated just below the village. Some are ski-in but not ski-out.
  • Indian Hills: While these condos are the furthest away from the village, they offer the best opportunity for views overlooking the valley.
  • Gold Bend: Recently renovated on the outside, these cute wooden buildings are about two minutes down the road from the village, and most have a lovely woodland outlook.
