Local snow makes flaking out of work cool, and the right kind of après-ski makes a trip to the mountains chill. With so many resorts within striking distance of San Diego, it’s always a great weekend to escape corporate life, grab the gear and hit the slopes for a different kind of “board” meeting.

With an elevation of 8,200 feet, Snow Summit offers 31 trails and nearly 250 acres of ride-able terrain. No storms? No problem. A state-of-the-art snowmaking system using water from Big Bear Lake adds to the snowpack.

Where to eat/drink
