Snow Sports



Davis is a great place to live if you like snow but don't want to live smack in the middle of it all winter. Lake Tahoe resorts are 1.5-2 hours away in good weather without traffic. If you're just looking for something cold to fall on, there's ice skating closer by, but still none in Davis.

On storm days, it can take 3x as long, or CHP can close highways for safety. Before your trip, call CalTrans at 800-427-7623 or check online if [WWW]Chain Control is in effect. If your ride is not 4x4 or AWD, get tire chains. Way cheaper to buy at a local store like Kragen Auto Parts, Napa Auto Parts, or Les Schwab Tire Center in South Davis.

2009-07-30 02:23:54   I just got back from the Graeagle area... Suffice to say, it's really nice. My advice is that you should try it if you like Tahoe, but would be willing to trade one big lake for a few dozen smaller ones, and basically no crowds to speak of. —JoePomidor

2010-03-03 15:20:54   I'm a Davis Enterprise reporter looking to head up to Northstar or Sierra this weekend (March 6-7) to capture local ski/snowboard feature story. If you think you've got something, ring me at 747-8052 or email me at jedwards@davisenterprise.netjon.edwards
