Looks like a GREAT day for snow play in the mountains.
All roads are open with NO chain controls.
The weather is clear about 32 degrees with no or light wind. Put the kids in the car and head on up.

We are currently receiving a mix of rain and snow this morning in the snow play areas. The weather service is calling for the temperature to drop today around noon. They are calling for possible 2-4” of snow today. Do keep your snow dance up!
Just returned from a trip to the snow play areas in Big Pines . There is NO snow anywhere that is accesible from the road for snow play. We only reveived rain for the past 2 days up to about the 7000′ level.
Happy Saint Patrick Day
The snow report for the Big Pines area.
Last night we received 1-2 inches of additional snow on top of the 4-6 inches we received on Wednesday. So it should be a good weekend for snow play.
There still are chain controls on highway west of Wrightwood.
The pictures below were taken this morning.
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.
