Tis the season to hit the ski slopes. Luckily, California has some of America's best mountains and deepest powder. But before you can perfect your turns, you need to get out of town. Good thing the stylish Cadillac ATS has all your ski weekend travel needs covered. 
Combining the nimbleness of a road-hugging sports car with the luxury and pedigree that goes hand-in-hand with a Cadillac, the ATS is a high performance sedan that looks as stunning from the interior as it does the exterior. Inside, a 10-speaker Bose Audio system immerses passengers in crisp surround sound, while the revolutionary CUE (Cadillac User Experience)--an intuitive entertainment and navigation system that allows you to access maps, apps and XM Radio all with the swipe of your finger or the sound of your voice--keeps you connected during your commute.
Now that your transportation is settled, it's time to decide where you'll be skiing or snowboarding. To get you started, Cadillac has rounded up three of their favorite California resorts. 
Only a tow-hour drive from LA, Big Bear Lake puts fantastic skiing and snowboarding right in our backyard with not one but two resorts. The family oriented Snow Summit offers 240 acres of terrain with a focus on beginner and intermediate trails, while Bear Mountain caters to daredevils with its three terrain parks and equally epic après-ski scene.  
Skiing and snowboarding get super-sized at Mammoth. With a whopping 3,500 skiable acres spread across 150 trails, you'll be hard pressed to do the same run twice. Add 300 days of sunshine a year, an excellent ski and snowboard school and pedestrian village packed with delicious dining and shopping options, and you've got a ski weekend destination that's well worth the six-hour drive. 
Home to some of the steepest and deepest runs in America, Squaw offers extreme skiing thrills from each of its six peaks (including the legendary K-22). But that doesn't mean this Tahoe resort is exclusively for experts. There's a beginner area at the top of the mountain (meaning novices get to enjoy the soaring views, too), terrain parks for all abilities and a three mile floodlit trail for night skiing. And let's not forget High Camp, a heated, mid-mountain pool and hot tub where you can ditch the ski boots for flip flops.
