Winter Flights to Mammoth Mountain Resume

Starting today, Horizon Air will begin its annual winter service to snowy Mammoth Mountain, offering daily flights from Los Angeles, Portland, San Jose, Reno and Seattle. Mammoth Mountain, one of California's ski resort gems, has already reaped the benefits of a winter wonderland with a base of five to eight feet--and even more on the way. The flights mark the beginning of regular air service to Mammoth throughout the snow season.

Bid on "Mini-Me" Art in Monterey

Art lovers will find delight in the posh Hotel Pacific and Monterey Museum of Art's "Mini-Me" deal. It focuses on the museum's annual exhibit of "small" paintings, photographs, prints, drawings and sculptures, all 7 inches by 9 inches or less and all up for auction, as donated by the artists. The special includes two tickets to the museum, two auction raffle tickets, and a night's stay in a deluxe suite, complete with cozy fireplace to keep the ocean chill at bay.

Let it Snow in Heavenly

A cold front overtaking much of California and a recent bout of precipitation can mean only one thing...ski season has arrived!

As of Tuesday, snow totals at 9,000 feet or higher at Heavenly Mountain Resort topped out above 30 inches, and the powder will only continue to mount as the week progresses. So if you're a trail blazer--heck, even if you're simply a snow angel artiste--we suggest packing up your four-wheel drive and heading for South Lake Tahoe this weekend before the masses get there first.

The New Ritz Carlton at Lake Tahoe Is Mighty Fine

True, it's frigid and semi-miserable in the Bay but guess what that also means: snow in Tahoe.  And while we're joyfully toasting to this pre-holiday snow-treat, we're also raising our glasses something else lake-side: The new Ritz-Cartlton Highlands (North Star) which opens tomorrow! We're sort of drooling over it. It's fancy.
