Greetings from Bishop, CA!

Big Mountains, Deep Valley…

Winter Is Choose Your Own Adventure Time

While most destinations force you into a snow-filled extravaganza or a warm weather getaway for your winter vacation, Bishop is a different kind of place. Within a short drive from Bishop, the elevation ranges from -282 feet BELOW sea level up to more than 14,000 FEET above! Depending on what you want to do, Winter in Bishop’s Big Backyard is a “Choose Your Own Adventure” Story, and you’re the lead character.

Climb In A T-Shirt Or Snowshoe In A Meadow

Bishop’s unique backyard surrounding our cozy town provides you access to all seasons of fun within a 20-minute drive. Glide down a mountain on a pair of skis. Climb a boulder basked in warm sunshine. Lace up a pair of ice skates and enjoy the perfect sheet of ice. Cast a fishing line in the Lower Owens River. This time of year is perfection so it’s no wonder residents AND visitors in the know realize that Winter IS Wonderful In Bishop.

Enjoy Death Valley Without The Deathly Temps

Another reason to visit in winter is you can enjoy Death Valley’s harsh environment in “cool” temperatures. While summer temps can easily reach triple digits, in the winter you can access a plethora of hikes to really experience this otherworldly locale.
