Badger Pass

  Badger Pass is the perfect place to learn to ski or snowboard. It has a really long bunny slope, and all the other trails are pretty easy too. The problem is that once you know how to ski without a V-shape thingy the place has little to offer. The staff is very friendly though. Says Bob.

All 5 different ski lifts at this ski hill are satisfactorily maintained and run by caring people. A 540 foot elevation difference is naturally not that much, but all
    the other nice properties of Badger Pass make up for it. This ski hill has a much lower than average percentage of red and black runs and a much higher than average fraction of intermediate or beginner ski runs. Badger Pass is a small
ski mountain boasting a rather cozy height difference when you compare it to other ski mountains in the region. This ski hill has a modest collection of ski runs and a reasonable number of good ski lifts. Getting a little bit of great exercise and just hanging out with your skiing buddies outdoes anything. The beautiful snow blanketed Central Sierra Nevada mountains are so beautiful you won’t believe it. This ski hill has 10 ski trails, and they are totally fun.  
This ski hill receives so much ice cold snow, 17 feet every year, and that is one of the reasons this is such a tremendous ski hill. Badger Pass is a family friendly ski resort with a lot of beginner and intermediate trails for novices. This ski resort has 100 acres of skiable land, and it's all in good condition. Badger Pass obtains an average amount of snow each season. You could be into skiing or snowboarding, or both, doesn't matter, in this general region, you'll find scores of ski hills. No other ski mountain for 35 miles has a more soaring height difference. The mountains of the Central Sierra Nevada give this ski hill an extraordinarily tremendous panorama. There are many hotels here if you want to stay for the night, and if you make reservations before you go, you're all set. The best piece of information on this resort is of course the ski run map of Badger Pass on this page. The skiing and the snowboarding in California is so much fun all winter season long. California gets enormously beautiful in the winter; it is the most glorious time of the year for snowboarding or skiing. Scores of skiers from Madera like to ski here.
