Good Morning

We received just a dusting of snow so far.  The weather service is calling for more this afternoon.   That is the good news.  Now the bad news, all roads in the snowplay areas are requiring chains or 4 wheel drive with snow tires .  I do not think that will change today with the forecast of more weather.  So maybe today is a day to stay at home and make plans to come up mid week or next week end.

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

Another beautiful morning

We have snow for snowplay in the Big Pines area.  The road are open and dry so no need for chains at this time (but make sure you carry them).  It is a bit cold this morning about 25 but this is what is keeping the snow, although it is a bit hard because of the cold temps.

The weather service is calling for a storm coming in late tonight into tomorrow.  So today would be a good choice if you do not like driving in a storm.

Good Morning

I just returned from the snowplay areas.  The conditions still look good.  The weather has been very cold so that has helped to hold the snow.  The snow had gotten a bit hard but everybody is still having fun.  The weather this morning, the sky is blue and light wind with temp about 28.  The roads are open and clear NO chain required today.  Make sure to display a Adventure Pass as we had customers telling us yesterday that they were getting ticket for no Adventure Pass.

Another beautiful morning

Yes we have good snowplay.  The weather is great a bit chill about 25 right now with a light wind.  all roads are open with no controls.

The problem you will have to day is traffic I suggest that you be in Wrightwood by 8:30 am or come after 2pm.  By doing this you will miss most traffic.

Starting Jan 7th Monday we will be offering discounts on snow play toys so if you can come during the midweek during that time you will find less traffic.
