Mauna Kea means white mountain in Hawaiian. It's a 4,205 meter volcanic mountain that sometimes gets enough snow for skiing. Since there are no ski lifts, you have to rent a 4-wheel-drive car to the top of the mountain and then just ski all the way down. When there is snow, skiers usually cooperate and take turns in giving rides to the top. The weather for skiing is rather unpredictable. Winter temperatures on the top range from -4 to 4 degrees Celsius. However, if the wind is too strong, it may be impossible to ski. If you don't have room for skiing equipment in your luggage you can rent from Mauna Kea Ski Corporation as well as check with them about the weather forecast.
