Vacation in Redding!
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to get stuck inside for the season. Escape to Redding, an outdoor paradise located in the heart of upstate California.
The opportunities for exploration are as vast as the mountains that surround the city. Discover the winter landscape on an active volcano with free ranger-guided snowshoeing and cross-country skiing tours at Lassen Volcanic National Park. Feel the joy of walking on the smooth surface that just beckons you to wander and explore the hundreds of miles of backcountry wilderness in its purest form.
For the slight adventurers — of all ages and sizes — excellent sledding hills are also available at Lassen Park. Also the nearby Eskimo Hill snow play area is a popular spot to slide down the snow.
The more daring enthusiasts can take it to the next level at Mt. Shasta Ski Park, set to open this season on Dec. 15. Hit the slopes at one of California’s most unique resorts, where you can enjoy an affordable winter adventure of alpine skiing and snowboarding, Nordic and backcountry skiing, tubing and snowmobiling. All without the crowds.
The Mt. Shasta Ski Park has something for everyone with both day and night operations, miles of trails available to cater to all skill levels, 32 conventional trails for 425 skiable acres, and two terrain parks to test your skills on twists, jumps and rails. For those new to winter activity, take advantage of one of the nest learning center programs in the industry during January, which is “Learn to Ski Month.”
So grab your gear, and maybe a friend or two, because California’s last frontier is calling. Make Redding your winter vacation destination, where fun meets adventure. Find out more at VisitRedding.com.
