    Snow Reporter Comments

    Thursday, January 21, 5:15 AM ...
    We are open today through Monday, 9-4. Cold temperatures have returned, with snow developing possibly by tomorrow or the weekend. The 10 day forecast shows consistent snow from January 22-February 1, we'll see!
    For today we'll have Chairs 2,4 & 6 plus our 400' moving carpet in the base area. Open and groomed runs will include Kaiser, Sundown Ridge, Tollhouse and Lower Academy plus the beginner hill. Highway 168 is open and clear. Ticket windows to redeem and purchase lift tickets, pay for rentals and lessons all open at 8:30 AM.
    If you have any questions on anything from lift tickets to lodging, the best way to reach us is via email at info@skichinapeak.com which we check several times a day and evening. Most of what everyone is asking is right on this website!
    A note about managing COVID at our resort. We speak often with our colleagues in Lake Tahoe, Mammoth and Big Bear on enforcing the rules on proper spacing and masks. We all agree it is a daily challenge, and for the most part our guests are doing a good job. Please do your part and wear a mask anytime you are within six feet of other guests who are not in your group, specifically in any line, on the Day Lodge deck, at Buckhorn, etc. Our staff is doing their absolute best to enforce the rules, and you can help them do their jobs.
    Season passes, lift tickets, learn to ski and ride packages, ski and snowboard rentals, adult and child group lessons and lodging are now available for purchase on line - please reserve on line to reduce contact at the resort. See below for all the links to buy. Season Passes are still on sale and offer the best way to enjoy China Peak. If you're purchasing lift tickets, your best buy is our three or four day lift ticket, valid any three or four days all season, save 20-30%. For private ski or snowboard lessons, send us an email at lessons@skichinapeak.com and we'll book you right away!
    With the lack of ski shops in this region it's hard to shop for skis. We currently have a wide selection of top of the line demo skis for sale through our demo shop, swing by and see our terrific rental manager, Cori.
    The Inn is open Thursday through Sunday nights. The number of rooms available is far less than in past years, thererfore we recommend you reserve earlier than normal this season. All available rooms have bathrooms, no economy rooms at this time.
    Our two cabins at China Peak Landing are available for rent, Rancheria Chalet and Huntington Vista, both less than two miles from China Peak just off the shore of Huntington Lake. There is a two night mininum, three nights over the President's holiday weekend, February 12-15.These cabins are also available Thursday-Sunday nights.
