What are some of the best ski resorts in Southern California? 

Southern California isn’t exactly known for its ski resorts; when most people think of our little half of this beautiful state, they almost exclusively think about our (albeit amazing) beaches. Though we don’t blame them, we also think they ought to broaden their horizons a bit – as it turns out, Southern California is home to some pretty great ski resorts! You read that right – ski resorts. Among the most popular (which is how we’ll go ahead and answer which ones the “best” ones are) are the famous Bear Mountain, which contains Southern California’s one and only Superpipe. It’s typically open from December to some time in April, so make sure to double-check the website for the most up-to-date information on hours and lift tickets. There’s also Mountain High, a resort that offers up a little bit of everything so that no matter what your skill level is, there’s sure to be something there for you. We also really love Mammoth Mountain! Want a little more inspiration? Check out this article about the wonderful Mt. Baldy Resort right here in SoCal. 

What is winter in Southern California like?  

Winters in Southern California tend to be quite mild; as a mostly-coastal region, it’s home to oceanfront views and temperate highs and lows. Daytime temperatures usually reach the 60s, which is quite pleasant – depending on one’s cold tolerance, they may not even need a coat most days! Sometimes, temperatures will reach the 70s, which is almost perfect beach weather if you ask us. As you get further away from the coast, however, the temperature swings occur more noticeably; the most inland parts of Southern California can sometimes see temperatures dip into the freezing range from time to time. As a general rule of thumb, the further inland a location is, the greater the temperature swing from high to low between day and night. Southern California is no different; those who prefer more consistent temps would be best off near the coasts for sure.
