Enjoy the pristine setting of Sky High Ranch near Bear Valley Resort at 7,000-foot elevation. Avoid the traffic and crowds in Tahoe - Bear Valley is a gem, with fantastic skiing in the most pristine part of the Sierras.

In winter, cross country ski in Bear Valley with the most expansive groomed trail system in California. Or go downhill skiing at Bear Valley Ski Resort with ample trails for all levels. Go sledding and snowshoeing right out the cabin door. Relax by the wood stove. Watch the stars in the hot tub on the deck.

In the summer, escape the summer heat, where temperatures here average mid 70s and 80s with pleasant cool evenings. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, and relax. Or if you feel energized, ride a bike, hike...

Everyone on the trip had a great time and really enjoyed the house. It perfectly accommodated 3 couples and 3 kids. We found everything we needed for cooking, enjoyed the hot tub, playing games in the evening, not to mention the beautiful views and sunsets. When we were there we were able to drive directly up to the house and...

Management response:

About the neighbourhood
Sky High Ranch is a community of cabins situated 5 miles below Bear Valley Village. It is a stone's throw away from the ski resort yet far enough to feel a sense of wilderness under the pine trees - with all the amenities. Parking for 1-2 cars in the winter right off Hillcrest Dr, with a trail in the driveway leading to the cabin. Ample additional street parking as well. AWD/FWD with chains are required for winter, as Skyline Blvd is a steep one mile road.

In summer, go to all the mountain lakes, rivers, and reservoirs: Utica, Spicer, Lake Alpine, Bear Lake. Mountain bike in the well marked trails. Ride road bikes across Ebbett Pass or participate in the CA Death Ride. It is the best alternative to Tahoe since it is NOT crowded and it is still pristine and less developed.
