Leland High Sierra Snowplay is a privately operated snow park for sliding and other snow play activities. It is located 39 miles east of Sonora, California, off Highway 108, at an elevation of 6,300 feet. On its 12 acres, Leland High Sierra Snowplay Area (also known as Leland Meadows) has several tows and snowcat-groomed hills for sliders. It is a popular place for families and groups who want a safe place to enjoy the winter slopes.

Leland High Sierra Snowplay Area has a 4,000-square-foot day lodge with a snack bar and restrooms. For those who want a break from the slopes, the lodge also has a warm fire, video games, and a pool table. Outside the lodge is a sun deck with ample space to eat or simply enjoy the winter sun. They have a large parking lot with free parking.

The park is open 6 days a week from 10 AM to 5 PM. The park is closed on most Wednesdays, however they are open on Wednesdays during Christmas holiday weeks and February 17.

For safety reasons, guests must use inner tubes (the only equipment allowed on the main slopes) from Leland High Sierra Snowplay. They maintain a huge supply of tubes, ready for use. The tubes are included in the price of a ticket. The use of plastic saucers, plastic sleds, boogie boards, and vinyl inner-tubes will ONLY be allowed on the kiddy hill.

Kiddie Hill

The Kiddie Hill is an area set aside for children (and adults) who prefer a smaller slope. It is a place for children to learn about sliding and to play in the snow. Double and triple riding is allowed on the kiddie hill.

Guests may choose to purchase a ticket for use of the park's lifts; or purchase a "walk up ticket" which allows the use of the slopes, but not the lifts. In other words, you do it the old-fashion way: You walk up the hill. Children must be able to ride the lift alone. A limited number of lift tickets are sold to avoid overcrowding.
