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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at Mountain Hardware 760-249-3653 Mon – Sat 8:30am-5:00pm and Sunday 8:30am-4:30pm. Or follow us on Facebook “Wrightwood Snowplay”.
