Who says you’re either a mountain person or an ocean person? It doesn’t have to be like that. In these six spots you can hit both and surf and ski in the same day.

August is when the itch gets the worst. Hot, lazy days lose their shine. The buzz of the air conditioner starts to burn your eardrums. And winter feels SO far away. And it is, but a plane ticket or a long hike could change that. Here’s where you can get your midsummer fix.

Opened in 1939 with help from Walt Disney, Sugar Bowl retains its old-school charm with a 1950s-style gondola and a rustic base lodge. But it’s plenty modern too. It offsets 100 percent of its energy through wind credits and has a remodeled 35,700-square-foot lodge and a new skiercross course that’s home to Olympian Daron Rahlves. The best thing about Sugar Bowl, however, may simply be the snow. Each year, the resort gets around 500 inches of Californian fluff.

Kirkwood is off the grid in more ways than one. The whole place runs on generators. Lift lines are six people deep on a powder day. Sierra storms fill the ski-porn-worthy terrain, closing roads and shutting down lifts for days. But with inbounds runs slanted up to 42 degrees, the most reliable snow in the area, and chutes that make big-mountain skiers queasy, it’s hard to believe the resort stays so low-key. Thank the hourlong drive from South Lake Tahoe’s packed casinos and resorts, which ensures Kirkwood remains unsullied by the masses. Just the way skiers there like it.

Snow in Tahoe fell for over a week straight— Squaw Valley broke its all-time snowfall total by reaching over 690 inches. Kirkwood had to dig out some of their lifts. Sierra-at-Tahoe had bottomless powder, everywhere. Then, the sun came out. Here's what the biggest storm in decades looked like.

Don't throw the boards into storage just yet. March, April, and even May (if you ski at Mt. Bachelor) are the best months to get great deals on lodging, lift tickets, and equipment, all while curating a gnarly goggle tan. Sun, brews, music, and costumes are what make spring skiing the next best alternative to an epic powder day. Here's where to close out yet another great season of shredding.
