Mountain bike trails by Sacramento

Sitting at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills, California’s capital city of Sacramento provides access to hundreds of miles of single and doubletrack mountain bike terrain for riders of every ability.

Flying, hotels, cruises in 2040

Someday you’ll be able to walk on a plane using nothing but your face. In that same era, you’ll be able to spend some time in your hotel room before you book it, immerse yourself in your destination while still on the plane, and jump in a tilt rotor drone for a business meeting 100 miles away. The year 2040 isn’t so far off, and all those things plus a slew of other cool stuff is waiting for us. Or at least, so says noted futurologist Ray Hammond, who, in addition to writing 14 books on the ...

What to do in Tahoe besides ski

Most people who visit North Lake Tahoe in winter are planning to hit the slopes. After all, the region in California’s high Sierra hosted the 1960 Winter Olympic Games and is home to a dozen world-class ski areas all within 40 miles of one another. To go without at least attempting to ski or snowboard would appear to be selling your trip short. But if you, for whatever reason, are not there to slide downhill on a plank of some sort, there are plenty of other activities to keep you entertained...

Presidents’ Day family ski trips

For many, the Presidents’ Day weekend is an optimal time to hit the slopes. Families, though, might need to think a little harder when choosing a ski resort. The lift ticket and lodging expenses of more skiers, the need for mellow runs for younger skiers, and options for off-the-mountain activities all weigh in. There’s also the factor of holiday weekend crowds. Well, we’ve got you covered. These five resorts are all made for family skiers, and most are less well known, meaning you won’t get ...

Best spring break trips in the US

You don’t have to do five-story beer bongs off a beachfront balcony to have a great spring break. Though let’s be honest, it’s a better story if you do. The annual respite from school and work that runs from the beginning of March to mid-April is one of the great American traditions, where college kids create memories they won’t remember, and families finally have time for some peace and quiet. Even if you can’t afford a week of debauchery in Mexico or a family jaunt to Europe, each state has...

Best US ski resorts for spring break

Spring Break doesn’t have to be about the beach. Nowhere can you complement the parties and late nights of a proper spring break with outdoor adventure and even a bit of exercise like you can in a ski town.

Cheap ski resorts in famous areas

Skiing is a notoriously expensive hobby. The equipment, the clothing, the $12 beers — all in addition to the cost of getting on the hill. For those lacking a season pass, planning a trip to the mountain is an intimidating prospect. Getting on the gondola at Aspen can cost you over $150. Lift tickets at some resorts have gotten so expensive that prices are hard to even find on their websites. Fortunately, there are more affordable options, some even leaving enough in your wallet to splurge on ...

Where to travel this December

For a lot of people , traveling in December means stuffing too many Christmas presents into a too-small suitcase and braving the airport masses to spend the holidays at home. But once in a while, we need a year off from the family chaos and opt to spend the holidays in some far-flung location. For those times, the world offers a litany of destinations where you can relax on a beach, bask in colorful Christmas lights, or trek through the snow to see the aurora borealis. So if you’re not going h...

3 awesome places for ski vacations

Skiers and snowboarders are fond of overarching statements. “I’ve skied Utah,” they might say after a four-day road trip to three different resorts. The thing is, it’s impossible to experience a great ski area in one day. Knowing a mountain requires enough time to explore its many slopes, or even lapping the same run a few times to find a truly memorable line. If you’re putting in the effort and money to do a big ski trip, do yourself a favor and spend some time getting to know a single dest...

Date a California girl

You probably already know that the stereotype of a tanned, blond, beach babe doesn’t exactly equate to all California girls. California is a diverse place and being a girl from this state is more of a mentality than a personality. You’ve heard all the songs about California girls, but how do you actually date a girl from California? Here are some tips. 1. Get in touch with your feminist side. California girls expect their men to be feminists. This doesn’t mean you have to go to a women’s ma...

What happens when you move to Cali

“I’ll probably only stay for a year.” A year is not enough time to really get to know Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, or San Francisco. And if you’re not living in any of the major California cities, that’s barely enough time to visit all of them. Plus there’s Yosemite to visit, the Redwoods to explore, ski mountains from Big Bear to Mammoth, Lake Tahoe, Joshua Tree for climbing and lots of fascinating small towns. You’re not leaving right away. “I’m going to spend all of my time outdoors....
