Ski Areas > US West > Granlibakken, California




  I went here one time with my mom and dad when I was a little girl, it was so much fun. There were a lot of other kids skiing there also. Says Fizz.

With a 300 foot drop it's not the tallest hill there is, but Granlibakken has so many other wonderful properties. The white snow here turns especially deep, 17 feet per year, and that is one of the greatest characteristics of this ski area. Granlibakken is a smaller than average ski resort boasting a relaxed
    vertical drop when you compare it to other ski mountains in the region. You'll run into many skiers from Gardnerville Ranchos here. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is so much fun the whole ski season. With a skiing
territory of 10 acres, it's very nice and small. This ski resort has a fairly small set of slopes and a rather modest quantity of ski lifts. Granlibakken has a much lower than average share of challenging ski trails and a much higher than average percentage of intermediate or beginner slopes. Granlibakken is a cozy spot with a kind staff. This ski mountain gets covered by snowfall close to the local average every ski season. In wintertime the Northern Sierra Nevada  
is an enormously splendid place if you get pleasure from snowboarding or skiing. This is a good spot for young and old with a lot of intermediate or beginner trails. Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, this is a vicinity with a lot of ski resorts for that. The Northern Sierra Nevada and its mountains is a panorama worth seeing. The wintertime months in California is the most grandiose time of the year for snowboarding or skiing. There are many perfect rooms to choose from, but you'd better reserve before you go as these rooms fill up quick. Getting a bit of fine exercise and just hanging out with your skiing mates will have you returning.
