California Ski Resorts

If sunshine, convenience and tons of off-mountain activities top your ski vacation docket, a California ski trip will please. Many of California's premiere ski resorts (Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood and Squaw Valley) are located near or around beautiful Lake Tahoe, which provides incredible views and awesome sightseeing opportunities.

If you've got time, check out Yosemite National Park while en route to California's most beloved ski resort, Mammoth Mountain, which can be reached via a local airport or a lengthy drive from Los Angeles. For access to Lake Tahoe's mountains, fly into Reno and you’re less than an hour’s drive from most of the area's best ski resorts
