California is home to one of the nation's most beautiful and surf-friendly coasts and stunning snow-covered mountain ranges. From the towering peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the redwood-lined shores of the north to the user-friendly mountains palm tree-framed beaches in the south, it's a wonderland of surf and snow opportunities. With enough planning, you can easily pull off a "twofer" – surf in the morning, ski or snowboard that afternoon.

Here's a guide to four of our favorite twofers the Golden State has to offer.

Nearly 50 years ago, the breaks around Santa Monica, including the legendary Venice Beach, helped give rise to the rebellious surf culture we know and love.

If the waves are pumping and you opt for a longer morning surf session, fear not, even latecomers can get in plenty of runs since Boreal offers some of the state's best night riding under the lights.
