Ski Resorts

California has some of the best skiing in North America with a ski season running from November to June. The two main ski areas are Lake Tahoe, which is around 200 miles (322km) inland from San Francisco, and Mammoth Mountain, 165 miles (266km) from Reno and 325 miles (523km) from Los Angeles. Lake Tahoe straddles the border between Nevada and California and separates the North Shore and South Shore ski regions. The North Shore is the quieter of the two and includes the resorts of Sugar Bowl, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Homewood Mountain and Diamond Peak. The largest resorts in the South Lake Tahoe Area are Heavenly, Kirkwood and Sierra-at-Tahoe. Big Bear is a popular weekend excursion from Los Angeles, located just 97 miles (156km) from the city.
