The towering peaks of the HIGH SIERRAS soar above the valleys and plains of California and create a spectacular landscape of lush forested slopes and azure lakes that are ideally suited to both summer adventures and winter escapades.
High in the Sierra Nevada mountain range sits the crystal clear waters and pine covered mountains of beautiful Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America. Visitors flock to Tahoe year round for kayaking, hill walking and horseback riding in the summer, and world class skiing in the winter. The vistasoffered at stunning Emerald Bay show off this lake at itsmost magnificent. Smaller towns and villages around the north shore have a charming and laidback feel, while lively South Lake Tahoe boasts bars, restaurantsand a vibrant atmosphere.
For a remote retreat in stunning surroundings, head to the beautiful town of Mammoth Lakes. In the shadow of the mighty Mammoth Mountain, this town makes the perfect jumping off point for exploring the Ansel Adams Wilderness area with its intriguing rock formations. Explore the great outdoors by bike, on foot or delve into the region’s gold rush heritage at nearby Bodie Ghost Town. During the warmer months Yosemite National Park is only a 45 minute drive away (2 hours to the valley floor), via the scenic Tioga Pass, making it an ideal day trip.
Winter In The High Sierras
For stunning vistas, welcoming alpine towns and fantastically varied skiing there are few places in the world that can rival California’s High Sierras, and all this within easy reach of many great cities and national parks. Deep snow lies on the ground but roads are quickly cleared in this popular destination. The quieter towns around the north of Lake Tahoe are each friendly ski resorts with Squaw Valley in particular delivering worldclass skiing. South Lake Tahoe is livelier and your base for skiing Heavenly Mountain, where tree lined runs seem to disappear into the azure blue of the lake. See pages 32-33 for our selection of Winter Holidays.
