Come be a part of one of Northstar's coolest traditions at Tōst and treat yourself to a glass of bubbly (or apple cider) with your crew at Lake Tahoe's only ski-up, mountain-view bubbly experience. Insider tip: Get in line by 1:30 pm to snag your spot for the 2:00 pm toast to the mountain—glasses are first come, first served.
