Challenge accepted: Winter sports | KGET 17

From heels to snow boots, Studio 17’s Ilyana Capellan tests her winter sports skills at Alta Sierra Ski Resort with the help of gear from Action Sports Bakersfield.

Kerry Ryan, owner of Action Sports, shares her expertise on the importance of choosing a warm, comfortable wardrobe and renting sturdy gear. “You would definitely want to start with your base layer for body protection so you want thermals and you want a good jacket and pants for waterproofing because you’ll be spending time in the snow,” Ryan said.

After preparing for Action Sports, Ilyana was ready to climb the mountain to Alta Sierra Ski Resort.

In Alta Sierra, the ski and snowboard season usually starts in December and ends in March or April depending on snowfall. If you’ve never “shredded the gnar” (skied or snowboarded before), Alta Sierra has lessons available for purchase as well as rental gear if you don’t have your own gear.

For more information on Alta Sierra Ski Resort, check their website or follow them on social media for up-to-date snow conditions and resort openings. To rent your own snowboards and skis, visit Action Sports online or in person, Tuesday through Sunday at 9500 Brimhall Rd #400, Bakersfield, CA 93312.
