Terrain

Our 3,000-acre national park-like setting between Squaw Valley and Sugar Bowl is nestled just east of the Pacific Crest itself at an elevation of close to 8,000 feet. Because we’re the only ones to access this area, the powder stays pristine long after the snow is tracked up at area resorts.

With seven distinctly different alpine zones at our disposal, PCS has the entire spectrum of terrain available for all types of skiers and snowboarders—from wide, open powder bowls to steep, technical lines. Our advanced terrain in particular tends to pleasantly surprise even the most accomplished powderhounds.

On average, runs are between 1,000 and 1,200 feet in length with a few of our longer laps closer to 1,500 feet. This means most groups can expect over 12,000 vertical feet by day’s end… more than enough skiing or riding to feel worthy of a cold beer on the ride back to the trailhead.
