Ski California Winter Sports Mountain Destinations Travel Guide

 

 
Northern California Snow Ski Ski Resort Areas, CA Ski Resorts
 
When you drive through Northern California, or fly into Redding, there's a mesmerizing mountain you'll see in the distance. It's defined peak makes it unmistakable, and it often can be seen with snow that paints it white. Mt. Shasta is one of several mountain ranges in the area, and it offers the ideal ski vacation. We love to point travelers toward other attractions in addition to the California beach travel guide ideas. So why not hop on a flight into Redding Airport where you can rent a car and drive 60 miles to Mt. Shasta? In the winter, there's skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and even dogsled rides. For a dogsled guide, expert operator / musher Pat Campbell has years of experience in the business and offers a 1-hour tour that's delightful. The Dog Sled Express operates under a Special Use Permit by the USDA Shasta Trinity Ranger District. Contact Pat Campbell Owner: (530) 467-3009; [email protected];  dogsledexpress.com/

Now let's get down to the serious skiing. Mt. Shasta Ski Park (skipark.com) shown in the pictures above offers 32 trails with 55% intermediate and 25% advanced. 3 triple chairs, 1 rope tow, 1 conveyor lift, and night skiing on 14 trails are offered.  The park claims it gets 275 inches of annual snowfall. For the snowboarders and tricks riders, two terrain parks give you the hits, jibs, rails and an Adrenaline Pipe, plus special jam weekends and days with contests and celebrations. Base Elevation 5,500 Feet; Summit Elevation 6,890 Feet. Mt. Shasta has something really cool, a satisfaction guarantee. If you aren't happy with the conditions or skiing, they'll give you your money back within an hour of your visit.
 
Other diversions include some of the finest ice fishing in California at Castle Lake. Large rainbow trout are easier to catch in the winter, and you sometimes may not need an ice auger to get a hole for fishing.  Another outdoor winter sports activity at Castle Lake is snowshoeing.
 
 
Getting there:  Travel north or south on Interstate 5 from Redding and points south. Take Exit 136 onto Hwy 89. On Hwy 89 drive 6 miles east, on summit turn left into Ski Park Hwy and drive 7 miles to the resort.
