The diverse geography of Los Angeles is relatively unknown to the rest of the country. Many picture either a smog-ridden city or a non-stop beach party. LA does have some of the most beautiful beaches, but it also has some of the most scenic mountain ranges as well.
Travellers can have it all this winter. Oceans, mountains and cityscape sprawling across the greater Los Angeles area provide the perfect opportunity for vacationers to utilize bikinis and snow skis in the same afternoon.
Wake up in Santa Monica with the sun glistening off the ocean and the cool breeze keeping the winter air temperature an average of 65 degrees. Then travel just two hours, 110 miles, straight east to Big Bear Lake, where the snow flies and the average low of 22 degrees is well below freezing.
Whether it’s the sands of the beaches or snow of the mountains, you’re sure to see plenty of white when you visit the vast terrain of LA.
