Where to ski in the US

edited January 2009 in World Wide
Flying into the US from the UK where are the best places to go on a ski holiday? Preferably the west coast so travel to California is easy after. Are there places to ski in California or near there?


  • There are a number of great places in California to ski, maybe the best is Mammoth. To get here it is best to fly into the Reno/Tahoe international aiport in Nevada and drive to California. For truly world class skiing it may be worth the extra trip into Colorado which has a host of the best mountains in the world including Aspend and Vail and lesser known but incredible slopes. If you wish to stay in California near LA the mountains of San Berdanino and San Gabriel are within two hours of the city. Northern resorts near San Francisco are Lake Tahoe and Mt Shasta.

    4 hour drive from San Francisco is lake Tahoe, with a good selection of accommodation.
    Or Mammoth is a five hour drive from Los Angeles.
