The skiing is great at NorthStar. No, the off piste glades aren't open and there isn't any powder to be seen. What NorthStar does have is 18 lifts running and 76 runs open, with 49 of them groomed. The superpipe is open and the parks are open. If you can't have fun in this kind of playground, I guess you don't like skiing/riding.
Burton has a big show going on this weekend so you can check out the latest gear and watch some pros do their thing. I would recommend getting there early for the best snow. By 2:00pm the surface gets scraped down to the hard ice pack in some places.
Watch my video and tell how the snow looks.
