California skiing

The Golden State (as California is often referred to as) is a dream destination for travellers from all over the world, for all manner of reasons. The tech giants of Silicon Valley (Facebook & Google to name a few) and The Golden Gate Bridge are often the first things that spring to mind, but the best reason to visit the West coast is undoubtedly the white gold – the snow!
