Visiting California's High Sierras

It’s not hard to understand what makes communities throughout California’s High Sierras such coveted travel destinations. This is the other side of California – not the California of the bustling Bay Area or vast and congested LA, but the one of towering mountains, lush forests, and pristine lakes. 

This is the Great Outdoors. The Land of Adventure. This is where you go to get away for a while. And as the snow melts and spring blooms, communities from South Lake Tahoe to Lone Pine welcome visitors with a variety of special events and family-friendly fun.

National Parks like Yosemite National Park and Kings Canyon National Park give kids visiting High Sierras plenty of opportunities to get out and stretch their legs, but on February 15th, the Free Chess Tournament for Kids is a chance for youngsters to work out their mental muscles. The competition is held at Gateway Elementary School in Ridgecrest.

The next weekend, the 2016 World Police & Fire Winter Games is week of competition open to active and retired law enforcement and fire personnel. Held at the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center in Mammoth Lakes, February 21st through 26th, the games feature Nordic racing, alpine skiing, and snowboarding events.

Anglers amble over to the 2016 Early Opener Trout Derby on March 5th in Bishop. Set up your supplies and cast a line into Diaz Lake for the chance to reel in one of a variety of prizes for kids and adults both.

If it’s high-octane action you’re after, check out the 2015 Winter Series Bishop Motocross event on March 12th. The all-day fun at the Tri-County Fairgrounds revs up at 7 a.m.
