Ski Northern California!

For our new responsive page with updated links, please visit: New GoMilpitas page for Skiing Northern California

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 2017-2018 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.
