Blue Canyon

California

Blue Canyon sits at the edge of Tahoe National Forest, about an hour away from Lake Tahoe itself. Despite being a bit off the beaten track, Mother Nature seems to have no problem finding it: Blue Canyon gets pounded with 20 feet of snow per year, though as much as 65 feet of snow in a year is not unheard of.
