So the amazing thing about Cali is that you can be at the beach in the morning and be in the snow later that same day. My sister was in town from Vermont so we went to Venice Beach so she could see the sites. Then we left for Mammoth for some amazing snowboarding. It was so warm the first two days, it got really cold and windy the next two days. The last day it was 9 degrees. So I felt like I was back East again.
