Sacramento, America If you’re a hard-core skier in the greater Sacramento area, chances are you belong to one of many private ski clubs that flourish there. Clubs like Bell Acqua, Ski Sunset Ranch, Liquid Zone and Stillwater Ranch are where most Sacramento tournament skiers go for great skiing on exclusive lakes. While initially this might sound a bit constricting, full access to pristine conditions and gear as well as a built-in group of ski buddies make membership an attractive option. For skiers who don’t want to carve turns in the confi nes of a 2,000-foot-long, man-made lake, Sacramento is known as the “River City” due to two major rivers converging near its downtown area. Both the American and Sacramento Rivers offer an abundance of glassy free-skiing runs.
