This guide offers some of the finest ski and snowboard descents in California's Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada. Grouped into nine geographical regions, these summits represent the best of the best—from well-known destinations to more remote areas to a sampling of the highest peaks. Historical anecdotes about each region round out the guide for an entertaining and informative read. Trips range from a half day to seven days, and while all can be completed on either snowboard or skis, the author makes specific recommendations for the best snowboard descents. Each trip description includes a complete narrative of the ascent and descent plus information on trip highlights, trip duration, level of difficulty, mileage, elevation gain, and access. The appendix includes a list of California’s highest peaks.
