I am driving :driver: up to Tahoe for the day (tomorrow) for some spring skiing at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. Temps have been in the 60's up there, but there is still about 5-6 feet of snowpack! I'll drive home in the PM

On Saturday, I will be scuba diving on the Sonoma Coast (about 40 minutes away) :pirate:

Sunday is wine tasting with friends in the Sonoma Valley :toast:

Where else but No. California can you do all three things in one weekend? :chestbump:

(San Francisco is unseasonably warm this week with temps between 60-75 degrees with bright clear skys.

Hawaii, actually...except you have to substitute Mai Tai's for the wine (which isn't a bad alternative)

I've never seen snow-capped peaks in Hawaii. Where do they ski there?

I was curious, so I did a quick search, and found it:

Ski Hawaii.

Here is a better reference to what I was describing

http://www.hawaiiinfoguide.com/hawaii_skiing.htm

Skiing in Hawaii is possible but certainly not "resort quality". The scuba diving on the other hand is.

SoCal. :#1: :D
Big Bear still has enough snow for skiing (in their case I think they make it themselves), there is no non-scuba season, and there're wineries in Temecula and Escondido and RB.

I believe you can do all three in Dubai, U.A.E. as well, except that the 'wine' has to be non-alcoholic. There is a ski-slope in the shopping mall.

Not really, unless you count Snow Planet's indoor skiing facility, or unless you're willing to brave winter sea temperatures of about 15°C, maybe less depending where you go. There's plenty of wine, though, all year round!
