China Peak is a ski area in Central California. It opened in 1958, named after the mountain, Chinese Peak. In 1981 the resort was purchased by the Snow Summit company and the name was changed to Sierra Summit before the 1982-1983 season. In the spring of 2010 it was sold and the original China Peak name was restored beginning in the 2010-2011 season.[1] It is located on the south shore of Huntington Lake, about 65 miles northeast of Fresno. Sierra Summit has 1,200 acres (4.9 km2) of skiable terrain, much of it covered by snowmaking.
