China Peak Sierra Summit
Description:

Sierra Summit is located in the Sierra National Forest at Huntington Lake, just 65 miles north of Fresno. Sierra Summit offers terrain challenges for all abilities. Seven chairlifts, two handle tows, a moving carpet lift and 1 T-bar service over 430 acres, 45+ trails, 3 freestyle parks, a half pipe and a vertical drop of over 1,650 feet. Sierra Summit also includes a family fun zone, and is affordable to all ages including the $20 high school Sunday lift tickets. If you are a more advanced skier you may want to head over to the more challenging terrain at the China Bowl. If you're looking for rustic mountain lodging, casual dining, and great terrain for any level of skier, Sierra Summit is the place to be.

Pros: Friendly; Scenic; Great lift layout; Fun runs; Excellent grooming

Cons: Slow lifts; Long drive; Even with lots of fresh snow, they couldn't get all the lower mountain open

Of course, weather accounts for a tremendous amount of one's ski experience, and my trip to China Peak followed a tremendous storm in which they got more snow than anywhere else in California, so take my review with a grain of salt! It was amazing! The snow quality measured up to the best I've experienced in Colorado or Utah. And after the storm, the sky cleared up and we had several bluebird days with plenty of sunshine--and even 3 days after the storm there were fun untracked corners of this decent-sized mountain. They have nice steeps to challenge advanced/intermediate skiers, and lots of great cruisers. Everyone was very friendly, and Fresno is a surprisingly fun city. China Peak's a great value, and I can't wait to go back!
