Partly Cloudy Strawberry 55°
Thank you! for visiting our website. If you have been to Leland High Sierra Snow Play before, you know how much fun our guests have. If you haven't been here before, we invite you to come up and see for yourself why we're the Biggest & Best Snow Play Facility in the Sierra. Come and play during the week to take advantage of our discounted mid-week rates and fewer snowplayers! So take a break from work, pack up the kids and come play in the snow with us! Were open from when the first snow falls to about mid-April.

At 6300 feet, this beautiful & natural setting is another world away. It is remarkably accessible though. Located in Tuolumne County, in the heart of Gold Country, Leland High Sierra is 39 miles east of Sonora on Highway 108, 3 hours from the San Francisco Bay Area and 2 hours from most Central Valley cities. We are your closest snow to home. Our snowcats assure well groomed snow. Family owned and operated, Leland High Sierra retains that cozy Alpine feeling but, with 12 acres of Snowplay fun is large enough to accommodate any sized group. We've saved the best news for last. The biggest & best snow play facility in the sierras is also the most affordable!!!

This year Leland Snowplay has teamed up with three premier lodging facilities to offer discount Snowplay Tickets, to help you budget your Snowplay day or weekend even better! We have chosen each based on their location and amenities. The Best Western Sonora Oaks, and The Inns of California Sonora are both located in historic downtown Sonora. With many shops and dining options to chose from, they both offer great room packages bundled with Snowplay family fun.

If it's a cabin your looking for, you can't beat The Cabins at Strawberry. Right on the Stanislaus River, and the closest lodging to Leland Snowplay. The proprietors, Brian and Mary Sutherland have been doing this for over 25 years plus, and really know how to take great care of their guests.  For more information click on either hotel below.

Technically, today is the first day of spring, but for California, it has felt like spring for months. As we move toward the end of March, as the days become longer and warmer, and with no significant wet weather on the horizon, we have to be realistic. We have received NO SNOW, beyond the occasional […]


With cold winter storms set to hit the region starting this weekend, we are making preparations to open for business IF we receive enough snow to safely operate.  We are looking forward to seeing the white powder fall again, and remain hopeful.  Will it be enough to get us open for more SNOWPLAY?  Given the […]

Feb.5th - Waiting on Mother Nature…

After more than a month without any precipitation, we are excited about the weather system due to hit Northern California later this weekend. Sadly, it is predicted to be a warm storm, with snow level higher than 7,000 feet. While, this is sure to provide some help to our drought-stricken state, it will do very […]

Jan.15th - WAITING ON SNOW… 

Unfortunately, the storms predicted to get us back open for this upcoming Holiday Weekend did not materialize as anticipated.  This is very disappointing for us all, but we will not be open for business for your Martin Luther King Weekend.  However, we are optimistically keeping an eye on the potential for winter weather towards the […]
