Excellent for Kids. No crowds. In Yosemite 30 mins from Valley.
Not for advanced skiiers
I'd much rather go here with the kids than any place near Tahoe. No lines. No hassle. Excellent for learning. When you're done there you can spend a 2nd day hanging out in Yosemite Valley playing in the snow or sledding down hills. Unlike overcrowded Tahoe, there aren't restrictions on where one can have fun along side the road or in snow covered meadows.
Don't expect any advanced slopes.
