Good Morning

We have had warm weather this week and most of the snow play is gone at this time.  So if you are looking to go sledding then check back after the next storm.  But if you are looking for something to do this weekend with the kids come on up and have a picnic or take a hike (many of the trails are open).  Swing by the store and we will give you the most current info on the best areas for what you want to do.

Always make sure you carry chains that fit your car and that you know how to install them. Only play in the snow on Public lands, (stop to see us at Mountain Hardware and  we can provide you with a map and info where the best conditions are currently). Please respect private property and do not play there.   You will also need an Adventure Pass $5.00 per day or $30.00 for a year we can supply that for you. Please remember to always pick up and take home any trash as this will make it nicer for the next visitor.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at Mountain Hardware 760-249-3653 Mon – Sat 8:30am-5:30pm and Sunday 8:30am-4:30pm. We are located at 1390 Hwy #2 in Wrightwood on the north side of the highway and have a large parking area and restrooms

The conditions for snow play are still very good.  With lots of new snow in the past week.

The temp this morning is in the low 30’s and a blue sky.  The only problem you will have is the traffic.  If you plan on coming up I would be in town by 9am to miss most of the traffic or try latter in the day arriving in town about 2pm.  The best option is to wait and come up during the week there will not be as much traffic.

The Snow play conditions are still good here there is some dirt starting to show.  But everybody still looks like they are having a great time.

Mountain Hardware will be closed ALL DAY on Christmas.  So if you come and and need snow play items like sleds and gloves just about 100′ to the west of our location on Hwy #2 is Jensen’s Market on the right and Wrightwood Mini Mart on the left.  They will have everything you need.

We will be open again open regular hours on Friday 8:30-5:30, Monday thru Sat. and 8:30- 4:30 on Sunday.

CONDITION WILL BE GREAT TODAY AND THIS WEEKEND

These may be the best conditions we have seen in the last 2 years.  We have received 12″ of snow this week on top of 6″ the week before.  I drove up to the snow play areas and the conditions looked great.  All roads are open with NO chain controls.  The only problem may be the amount of people coming up to visit.  So if possible try to arrive early in town by 9am or come up around 2pm as this is when a lot of the earlier visitors are leaving.

Always make sure you carry chains that fit your car and that you know how to install them.

Snow play conditions will be great this weekend.  In the snow play area there is 12-15″ of snow in the last 10 days.  Roads are open with NO chain control

All the snow play areas have great conditions

The only problem this weekend will be the traffic.  So I suggest that you arrive early, be in Wrightwood by 9am or wait until arriving at 2pm this will help you to avoid most of the skier/ snowboarder traffic and to have more time on the snow.

12″ of new snow, the sun is breaking out and it is beautiful.

There is no chain control up to Big Pine at this time.  The road is closed past Big Pine but there still is plenty of area for snow play.  So if you are off today come have a GREAT day in the Mountains.
