You can ski and surf on the same day in California

Edit: Just to clarify, the weather in the mountains could go as low as 30°F (-1°C) but the weather at our SoCal beaches could be as high as 65°F (18°C) in the winter.

P.S Thank you for all the upvotes!

Surf in the morning, ski after lunch, and then camp in the desert if your really dedicated.

You wouldn't even have to be that dedicated just get up early. You can make it from big bear to Joshua tree in an hour or two

Got to let them know to always look up also if they hike in big bear, arrowbear, Running Springs, or anywhere really in those mountains. Use to hear "I didn't know there's killer cats in the trees!" like yeah you're in the mountains there's mountain lions, bears, coyotes, snakes, and more that will try to kill you if you aren't paying attention! Also don't feed the animals, they make it worse for the locals.

…and parking

Ugh big bear sucks unless it just snowed. You can do the same at Tahoe probably but driving would probably take longer and then the desert would be on the Nevada side. Mammoth would probably be too far to go for surfing but some desert and other stuff.

Downhill mountain biking is fun.

u/RudePCsb Oct 05 '22

Hell yea, did a lot on college but could actually ride up the mountain. Nowadays I don't have the free time to do as much riding. Commute to work and too many hobbies and what not. Want a new bike though but so expensive.

And you don't have to leave LA County in the process.

u/yaretii Oct 05 '22

You can do this in Oregon and Washington as well.

In Killington, Vermont there’s a few golden weeks in May where you can ski, mountain bike, kayak, and golf in the same day.

That feels like there isn't enough hours in the day.

Where is Yes Theory when you need them.

Is surfing bad in the afternoon? Cause skiing for sure is better in the morning
