Do you remember “Choose Your Own Adventure” books? That’s what visiting Bishop is like in the winter. You are the leading character. And the choices you make in the morning and throughout the day will determine what kind of fun you’ll have and the outcome. From skiing in the snow to climbing in a t-shirt, winter here allows you to enjoy ALL seasons. And the best part? Each day provides you the opportunity to do something different. Winter isn’t just a good season to visit… but a WONDERFUL one.
To The Snow Or Play In The Warm Sunshine
One of the first decisions to make is which style of activity do you want to enjoy that day. For snow-tastic activities, you’ll take a short 20-minute drive up into the High Sierra covered in feet of alabaster white snow. On the flip side, if you want to bask in sunshine and enjoy adventures in world-class fishing, hiking, biking or even bouldering, then all you have to do is stay in the Valley. The temps may read in the 50’s but the high desert sun feels MUCH warmer. This allows you to enjoy being outside with a light jacket or even a t-shirt. Heck, you could even ski in the morning and fish in the afternoon if you wanted to.
Finish Off With Relaxation
No matter what the day has in store for you, you now have the next chapter in your “Choose Your Own Adventure” story – how should I relax? Although Bishop’s population sits at a comfy 4,000 residents, the cuisine scene is something you’d expect in a big metropolitan area. Foodies will flip at the international flair of options available to enjoy OUTSIDE. Or if you’re feeling a bit achy, head to Keough Hot Springs for a good soak, or for a bit more privacy, book a stay at the Inn At Benton Hot Springs.
