When most people think about California, visions of the beach and Disneyland come to mind. Little do they know that California is also home to world-class ski resorts.
Mammoth Mountain has a peak elevation of 3370 metres and enjoys sun-splashed days of blue skies and vibrant white snowcovered terrain, that is perfect whether you ski or snowboard and whatever your age. With 1.3 million annual skier visits, Mammoth Mountain is currently the third most frequented ski resort in the United States. Lovers of snow hang their helmets here because of the impressive 10-metre average annual snowfall combined with the active, laid-back California lifestyle.
Stunning Lake Tahoe is North America’s largest alpine lake. The collection of resorts that surround Lake Tahoe, including Heavenly, Kirkwood, Northstar, Mt Rose, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Squaw Valley, represent a snow-lovers dream and a handy Ski Lake Tahoe pass option gives you access to all of them on the one pass. Combining over 300 days of sunshine a year and some of the highest annual snowfalls in North America, the resorts offer unparalleled scenic vistas and panoramic views of mountains and lakes, stately groves of pines and ludicrously gorgeous sunsets.
