go to the mountains???


Hello :)

What preposition + mountains are you going to use to describe in these situations:

Now you are at home and you are going skiing. I guess you will say:
"I am going skiing in the mountains".

But if you don´t specify the reason why you are going there (in summer it could be hiking or cycling) can you say:
"I am going to the mountains."?

Thank you for your ideas :)

    The skiing will take place in the mountains. You are not actually telling us where you are going but what you are going to do. Logically, you must be going to the place where the activity occurs but that isn't what the grammar says.
