January 2 – 2022

1-2-22. Today is a great day for snowplay. Being Sunday it will be busy with traffic. If you have not left yet I recommend coming in the afternoon as the morning traffic will be going the opposite direction. Snowplay will be great this entire week, so if you can I would wait till a weekday to come up and enjoy the snow. No chains required except for possibly N4 will more than likely still be icy. Hope everyone’s New Years was great and drive safely.



We got over a foot of snow last night.

Our suggestion is not to come up today only because they have not plowed turnouts and the gate at big pines is closed.

It is gridlocked right now coming up highway 2. This is a very small space left for everyone to enjoy it.

Wait till during the week if you can. We have more snow coming this week.
Yesterday there was a nine car pile up so we want you to be safe!


At this time I would not recommend coming up for snowplay.

Since the Governor’s issue of “stay at home” order. We do NOT recommending anyone to come up at this time.

We are all in this together let’s hope we can flatten the curve and get back to our normal life SOON.



Pictures above were taken this morning. The snow play conditions area GREAT we received about 4″ of snow this week. So now is a good time to come on up and spend a day in the snow with your family. Stop by Mountain Hardware 1390 Hwy 2 in Wrightwood, Ca 92397 and we can give you a map to find the best conditions.


Happy Valentine Day
The weather is spectacular here. Blue sky, light winds and the temperature is in the mid 40’s.
All the open roads are open and clear with NO tire chain required.
So this is a GREAT weekend to throw the kids in the car and come on up for a FUN family day in the snow in your National Forest/Monument…. See More

We got about 4” of snow last night. There are chain controls before Mountain High East. It is also very windy in the higher elevations. So chains will be required to get to any snowplay today. Drive safely.
