Looks like it will be a Great weekend in the mountains

We have snow for snowplay and warm temperatures classic Southern Ca. weather.  All roads are open no need for tire chains.  I just visited the snowplay areas and they looked good.

This being a 3 day weekend MLK holiday there will be lots of traffic.  I would recommend that you arrive in Wrightwood by 9am on the weekend.  If not then about 1-2pm would also be a good time as many people are leaving by that time.

I hope everybody has a Great visit to YOUR local mountains.

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.

New snow last night

We received 3-5 inches of snow last night in the snowplay areas.  The only problem is you must have tire chains on your car or 4 wheel drive with snow tire to get here.  The roads are very slick this morning.  So today would be better taking care of those home projects you have been putting off.

You can access snowplay area at the Wrightwood Ranch they will charge you $5.00 per person and you bring your own sled.  The good new is that you DO NOT need chains to get to the the Wrightwood Ranch.  If you want to go farther to the west on Hwy #2 there are chain requirements.
