  • The Valley is where the Winter Olympics took place. It's 3-4 hours from San Francisco, where the cherry blossoms are blooming and it's warm, and we went to the ski resort with 2m of snow. It was april, but it was not a feeling of heavy snow, but the mountain top was in the same good condition as the midwinter. It was a large and good ski resort. I felt that the lift ticket was quite expensive.
