California Snow Adventures
Like so many things, the pandemic has added a layer of complexity to the typical California snow season. Mountain ski resorts and outdoor recreation areas have COVID-19 safety regulations in place and restrictions on capacity that make planning ahead and pre-purchasing passes essential to a successful winter getaway on the slopes.
But as California Now Podcast host Soterios Johnson found out in this episode, skiing and other snow sports can be a safe and enjoyable activity for all ages during this tumultuous time, whether it's flying down the slopes on skis, boards, or tubes.
Johnson opens with a discussion of the current state of Golden State snow play with Ski California president Mike Reitzell. Then he learns about the benefits and thrills of cross-country skiing with guidebook author and ski instructor Tim Hauserman. Finally, Johnson chats with Top Flight Family blogger Carmen Sognonvi, who offers up tips for having fun in the snow with kids—and without skis.
