Just like everything 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 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 about 30 minutes from Lake Arrowhead. 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. Read about opening times right here. Map & Directions
There's some interesting history about SNOW SUMMIT, in Big Bear, that you may not know; A sportsman 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 annually, 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
