Merry Christmas I hope everyone have a GREAT Holiday.

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.

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

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.

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.

YAHOO!!!!!!!!!

We have snow in the snow play areas 5-6 inches.  It is a clear sky day with lots of sunshine this morning.  I drove up to the area above Big Pines this morning and it looks GREAT.  At this time there is chain control  signed turned at Mtn High East but I am sure that will be lifted as the day warms.

The ski area is not opening today so this is a great day to come up as there will not be any skier traffic.
