San Francisco to Los Angeles Express
Las Vegas, San Francisco, LA and the quest for the perfect burger—all that’s missing from this quintessentially American experience is a ballgame and mom’s apple pie.
Most of the action converges on one of California’s oldest ski resorts. The gentle slopes are perfect for families and beginner skiers and snowboarders. It’s about 22 miles from the valley on Glacier Point Rd. There are five chairlifts, 800 vertical feet and 10 runs, a full-service lodge, equipment rental ($27 to $37 for a full set of gear) and the excellent Yosemite Ski School , where generations of novices have learned how to get down a hill safely (group lessons from $47).
