SNOW SEASON runs from about Thanksgiving until March depending on the year.. the house is at 5500' elevation and typically gets about 5 feet of snow per season. The lot has an excellent slope for sledding with little kids and older kids may walk up the road to a great sledding location at the hangglider launch point. Snow Valley is the closest ski resort accessed by major mountain roads and is 17 miles distance. Very good cross country skiing is found on old service roads at the end of the street about 1 mile from the house - there are few sets of cross country skis boots, poles etc available at the house to use. We also have some sleds and disks at the house for the kids upon request.
SUMMER is terrific in the Crestline area. Lake Gregory is 2 miles from the house and has waterslides, a public beach, paddle boards, fishing and kayaking. The average summer daytime temperature is between 80 - 90 degrees from June through September with clear skies and gentle breezes. 4x4 roads for ATV's and backwoods exploring are abundant. There is great hiking trails and Deep Creek hotsprings near by. Summer is great fun on the mountain and the area has over 300 days of sunshine!
You want to have a car and if you like hiking the property is close the national forest boundaries. There are great hiking trails close by to Deep Creek hotsprings and other landmarks. Also, dining and vintage shops are worth investigating.
