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 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 is located in historic downtown Sonora. With many shops and dining options to chose from, they offer great room packages bundled with Snowplay family fun.
