California is a state that has such a varied terrain it's almost hard to imagine. There's the rugged and rocky coastline, the arid southern desert, the lush green forests to the north, and even in some parts, snow-capped peaks. Southern California's San Bernardino Mountains offer easy access from Los Angeles, with resorts like Mountain High or Snow Summit. Farther north lies the Sierra Nevada Range, with popular ski destinations like Mammoth Mountain, or around Lake Tahoe there is Squaw Valley with its steeps and cliffs or Sugar Bowl where powder hounds will be right at home. Last, but not least, is Heavenly Resort on the south side of the lake, where skiers and snowboarders of all abilities will delight. At this point, you're probably wondering, "Well, where do I sign up?" Take a look at our family cabins and see how you can make your next ski vacation one for the books.
