West woods

Probably the most challenging run at Alta Sierra, West woods needs good snowpack (3+ feet) to be skied but it is sweet and you can find powder for days after a good snow fall. Just don't go too far to the west. After Rancheria road, the next road is 35 miles downhill.

snow shoeing or skiing?

That looks like a nice place to snowshoe with the family? What were you talking about?
