When most people think about California, they think of warm weather, sunshine and long stretches of sandy beachfront. Being a coastal state, it’s quite understandable that snow may be the last thing you think of. But while California may have some of the most stunning beaches in the country, it also has some amazing snow-covered peaks. In fact, many of the action photo’s you see in magazines are taken in the Californian mountains.

Locals can go from incredible surfing in summer to stunning skiing or snowboarding in winter – making it a great all-round sport destination. Check out our featured resorts below to help you make your next winter vacation destination choice.
