SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SKI SLOPES/RESORTS - And more

It's that time of year; to brush off the skis, get 'em waxed and ready to hit the slopes!!! Just like ski in Southern Caeverything else here in Southern California, we are close to SKI SLOPES & resorts! Really, how many other states can you hop in your car and within a few minutes, or a few hours, arrive at the desert, the beach, the valley or in the mountains?  NOT MANY!

SNOW VALLEY, in Running Springs--San Bernardino Mountains--is right in my back door (almost). For those of us who live in or, around, Lake Arrowhead, it's only about a 30 minute drive from our front door. Snow Valley has some gentle runs (in my opinion) and it's a great place to take the entire family. From their link (above),  you can access snow reports, buy tickets, get a terrain report and tons, tons more!  Snow Valley tries to open every year around Thanksgiving.    Map & Directions

There's some interesting history about SNOW SUMMIT, in Big Bear, that you may not know; A sportsmaskiing in CAn named Tommi Tyndall, along with his wife and other investors, are responsible for this ski area and for the installation of the FIRST chair lift in the nation!  Snow Summit is about 90 minutes from Los Angeles, gets quite a bit more snow than Snow Valley and has more "strenuous" runs. Find out everything this wonderful ski area has to offer at Snow Summit stats.    Map & Directions

 If you want to get out of Dodge and head up north, then you may want to consider MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN.  With over 400" of snowfall ski in so calannually, and thousands of acres of terrain to ski, sometimes Mammoth will have snow when no other ski resort do. Located off Hwy 395, it is quite a drive...but most people say it's well worth it.  Map & Directions

Also included, for those die-hard skiers, here are links to a few other ski resorts in our great state of California:

  Granlibakken Resort   Mount Shasta    Tahoe Donner

Kat,

Another great informative post! I can hardly wait till the snow gets here!  Looks like I'll be entertaining the gang for Thanksgiving this year, so a little snow would be really nice!

I had my first skiing lesson near Lake Arrowhead. You know how you feel when doing your taxes? That was similar but not as good. At some point, I took off my skis, threw them down the hill, and plopped down into a snowdrift to sob.

Elizabeth: I KNOW exactly what you mean. I have to confess; I went up the bunny tow, came back down and REMOVED the boards from my feet and went and had hot cocoa! That was it for my skiiing adventure... LOL  I LOVE watching.

WOW! It looks like someone is going to have a blast. I don't ski. We have ski slopes in NC, but I've never been brave enough to try. One day...I'm gonna go for it.

BTW...thank you so much for praying for my daughter. It has taken me a while to catch up with everyone who prayed. Just know that it meant the world to me. I have added you as an associate, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you. GBU~

Elizabeth: IT was my pleasure PRAYING for your daughter. It's such an easy thing to do, yet something I KNOW THAT WORKS! I will add you as an associate my friend.

P.S. after the bunny tow thing, I decided I would never put boards (skis) in my feet again. LOL
