Overall

4.2

Midsize mountain approx. 1.5 hours from Fresno offering the best skiing in the Valley. Many praise the no-frills mountain experience with cheap single day and season passes, while some complain management has overlooked things like the lodge food, which is widely considered quite bad and overpriced.

I have been coming to China peak with my family since I was 13. Since this was the only place my family came to ski I knew no different. I loved China peak. But my urge to ski big mountain is were chi na peak started to fall short. Skiing steep and deep at china peak was hard to come by. I would say that they do a good job at maintaining a terrain...
