 Last week, Vail Resorts announced it would invest $30 million in capital improvement projects at its newest mountain resort property, Northstar-at-Tahoe in California. The project includes plans to install a new high-speed chairlift, increase skiable areas by 10 percent, construct a 500-seat on-mountain restaurant, and open new retail outlets and a signature restaurant in the Village at Northstar. The village currently features 35 shops and restaurants, meeting space for up to 200, and a 9,000-square-foot skating rink.
