California offers the winter sports and skiing enthusiast everything desired in the great resorts of the Lake Tahoe basin. Heavenly, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Alpine Meadows, Kirkwood, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Royal Gorge are some of the main resorts. Alpine or downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, scenic viewing from mountain tops, tram rides up the mountain, fine dining, fun dining, and snow play for children are all possible.
If you like to imagine cross-country skiing (or alpine skiing) at different areas around the nation, sooner or later you'll focus on Colorado.
Winter explorers in the Canadian Rockies can absorb the scenery around Banff, Jasper, Sulphur Mountain, Vermillion Lakes, and the Icefields Parkway. Cross-country skiing in possible at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. One good downhill area is Goat's Eye at Sunshine.
