Western Sierra Ski Resorts Overview
Winter resorts in the Western Sierras are world-renowned as well as small community supported hills. Many California resorts also offer groomed cross-country trails and most provide rentals, food services and schools where you can learn how to ski or snowboard. From the technical steeps of Kirkwood Ski Resort near Tahoe to the smaller Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area in Yosemite's high country, winter resorts in California are snow skiing and snowboarding friendly and many now offer terrain parks. Be sure to check the resort websites for a snow report and winter vacation packages. Other winter activities include snowmobiling, dog sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
