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.

The seasonal snowfall is more or less average at Granlibakken. A 300 foot drop is naturally not that much, but all the other nice qualities of Granlibakken compensate for it. Granlibakken has a rather humble selection of runs and not many lifts. This ski resort has a much lower than average ratio of expert
    and advanced ski runs and a much higher than average share of easy runs. The Northern Sierra Nevada in winter is a tremendously good place if you get pleasure from snowboarding or skiing. The unbelievable 17 feet of yearly snowfall
is more than enough for really great depth. With a skiable terrain of 10 acres, it's more of a cozy style ski area. The snowboarding and the skiing in this part of the country is a splendid thing to do through the winter season. This is a small-size ski mountain boasting a smaller than average vertical drop when you compare it to other ski resorts in the region. This ski mountain is nice and cozy operated by kind folks. The winter in California is truly a good  
time of year for snowboarding or skiing. This is a good ski mountain for young and old with lots of intermediate or beginner ski slopes for beginners. The Northern Sierra Nevada and its mountains give this ski hill a tremendously good vista. You get loads of skiers going up here from Gardnerville Ranchos on snow-white weekends. Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, around here, you'll encounter a lot of great ski resorts. Magnificent exercise and getting out of the house for a while will have you returning. There are several fine hotels near the main area, but you'd better book in advance of a trip given that these hotels fill up rapidly.
