Ski Northern California!

Most Resorts are now open or will open soon. Most now have Facebook or Twitter accounts to keep you updated about conditions. Recent December 2014 storms have brought plenty of snow to the higher elevations of the Sierra Mountains! Lower elevations may have enough snow for snowshoeing or sledding on a casual basis.

No, it doesn't often snow in Milpitas, and never enough to ski, but many love to head to the Northern California slopes near Truckee, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. Here's our favorite nearby ski areas within about a 4-hour drive of Silicon Valley or San Francisco.

If I missed one, please email me with the URL if you have it. Updated for the 2014-2015 ski season. Many resorts have very good deals at this time, if you want to purchase season passes for the about-to-arrive ski season.

*Skier icon indicates open ski resorts. Check before you go. It's been an on again, off again winter.
