General Information

Description - Montecito-Sequoia is a year-round resort located in the southern Sierra Nevada near Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

Attractions - Montecito-Sequoia Lodge offers 80 km of groomed cross-country trails as well as snow tubing, snow shoeing and a family-friendly lodge environment. Lessons (including introductory snowboarding), tours and children's programs available.

Recreation - Montecito Sequoia offers outstanding cross-country skiing, sledding and snow tubing slopes. Summer brings opportunities for hiking, swimming in the pool, tennis, paddleboating, and more.

Climate - The High Sierra generally experiences mild to warm, dry summers and cold, snowy and wet winters. Weather can change rapidly during all seasons of the year. Elevation plays a major role in temperature and precipitation. This precipitation falls mainly from October through April. At higher elevations, it comes mostly in the form of snow. A snowpack from 5-10 feet or more is usually present from December to May at elevations above 6,500 feet. Winter temperatures below zero and summer temperatures above 100 degrees indicate the normal seasonal spread. Clouds can build up during the summer to produce spectacular thunderstorm activity. It is wise to pack for any season with clothing that can be "layered", ready to peel off or add on as the thermometer dictates. Always include some kind of rain gear.

Location - Montecito Sequoia is located along the Generals Highway, between Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park.

Two main roads provide access to the parks from the West, Highway 180 from Fresno enters Kings Canyon National Park, and Highway 198 from Visalia enters Sequoia National Forest. In the summer, the Generals Highway connects the two roads, making loop trips available.
