The Northstar Stash opened in the winter of 2006 and was the prototype for the Stash parks thereafter. Early planning and concept trips to Northstar included Jake, Boliba and team riders Dave Downing, Kimmy Fasani and (team rider at the time) Jussi Oksanen.  Snow Park Technologies (SPT) was instrumental from the very beginning in developing and constructing these runs so they were as ridable, fun and  safe as possible.
