For those who live in the local area Sierra Skummit is a great resort to go to. The overall size of the mountain is small with a little over 1600 foot vertical drop this mountain is traverser friendly! Teles seam to love this mountain! However it is a great place to take the family. The resort offers above-average lodging and a family-friendly atmosphere. The mountain is a good place for beginner-to-intermediate level skiiers and snowboarders because of the less challenging terrain. I like to say to family and friends, if you can ski skummit, then you will love to ski everywhere else, because it makes you appreciate bigger resorts! China Peak is a relaxed place to ski and have fun and everyone should go once.
