The Alta Sierra Ski Resort is located approximately one hour from Bakersfield, California, in the Southern most tip of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The Resort is 7000 ft. in elevation and the weather can get very cold. You will want to dress in layers, with a water resistant jacket, pants, shoes or boots. We recommend that everyone participating in a snow related activity consider wearing a helmet. We offer a small selection of rental helmets on a first come first serve basis, or you can purchase one from our ticket office.
The ticket office is the first building on the mountain and will be your first stop. This is where you will purchase your passes, and purchase any items you may need or have forgotten. We do not accept Personal Checks. You will then proceed to the rental office to pick up your equipment. Be prepared to leave your drivers license which is required as a "deposit".
Our Ski packages includes: boots, skis, and poles -$40.00 full day or $30.00 half day (starts at 12:30pm). The Snowboard package includes: snowboard and boots for $45.00 full day or $35.00 half day.
We have a charming warming hut that is the perfect place to come in out of the cold. Some people pack a lunch. However, we feel that our lunches are very affordable, and it's one less thing for you to worry about. We offer breakfast items in the morning, burgers, hot dogs, soups, salads and more as well as a variety of drinks. There are tables set up for you to enjoy your meal inside or seating outside. The warming hut hours are 8:00am – 4:30pm.
Be sure to arrive no later than 10:00 am to assure a close parking spot as well as rentals. You can check our web site for our opening date and driving directions.
Finally, Alta Sierra Ski Resort is a family friendly resort and our goal in every department is to assure a fun filled memorable experience for all our guests!
We hope to see you on the slopes!
