A lot of areas in California where the weather will stay the same for weeks on end. Which area has the most varied climate.

Maybe the High Sierras. We would go to opening day of trout season in spring and we'd show up Friday and it was 58F and sunny and we'd be in shorts partying and throwing frisbees. Less than 36 hours later it is 2F and snowing like crazy.

I agree. Almost any town in the upper reaches of the Sierras. The weather around Lake Tahoe is highly variable. The weather on the far northern coast also changes by the minute, but in a rather predictable and monotonous way.

Big Bear located in Southern California in the San Bernardino mountains is gorgeous and has 2 ski resorts and 4 seasons weather. The location puts you close to LA, Vegas, and San Diego!

The high Sierra is the closest thing to weather common to the Pacific Northwest. In-fact, the weather that is typical of coastal Alaska and Washington is comparable to the highest peaks in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Otherwise the climate in California follows the typical Mediterranean model of mild winters and a long warm dry season.

I think the Sierra mountain range has the most volatile weather in California.

Eastern Sierras,
I went to the village in Mammoth and it was 70F, next 2 days it was a whiteout. Then it was 70 again the day after.
