The mega getaway for SoCal skiers & outdoor enthusiasts. San Francisco has the western Sierra's & most of Tahoe to recreate, but Southern California only has Big Bear for snow & lakes. The real snowboarders & skiers bypass all the crappy snow-n-crowds & head up Highway 395 a few hours, for epic conditions, a longer season, plus a much bigger mountain. Outdoor recreation all year long too with fishing, golfing, backpacking, mountain biking & much more.
description: The most popular Eastern Sierra California Ski region. Located on the slopes of the majestic Eastern Sierra mountains with village surrounded by pines. Tons of lodging, shopping, restaurants. In the winter, it's so freakin' busy that the city put a free shuttle bus system together.
