We are getting snow in the snow play areas as of this morning.
If you are coming up make sure you come early as I talked about in yesterday’s post. Also make sure you and your car are prepared for winter travel conditions. Make sure you have tire chains and know how to install them and how to drive with them on. Tires chain are currently required in all the snow play areas.
We have received 3 plus feet of snow in the last 10 days so if you can not make up this weekend we have plenty to last for a few weeks.
It is beautiful day in the mountains.
With all the new snow this pasted week now is the time to come play in the snow during the weekdays. As this weekend will be a zoo with lots of skier/boarder and snowplow all congested in the same areas. Also because of the amount of snow we have received there will be less parking available. So the short version is: COME UP ON WEEKDAYS. That is the insiders secret.
The weather is great blue skies, light winds and temp is in the low 20’s
Stop by Mountain Hardware at 1390 hwy 2 Wrightwood, Ca. 92397. We can help you with info on where to go to find available land for snow play and answer your questions.
We received snow all night and it is still snowing. The weather service is saying the storm should end tonight.
We have plenty of snow in the snow play areas. So there is no rush to get here as the road conditions are still not very good. Tire chains are required from hwy 2 west bound to Wrightwood. So if you have to come make sure to stop and get your chains and know how to install them.
Chains are sold at the SHELL Station at the 15 and 138 24 hours a day. Also at MT TOP MINI MART at the 138 and Hwy 2 they will open today at 7:30 am.
Still better, I would just wait until the road are in better shape.
I would suggest you wait until the weather clears to come up for a day in the snow. At this time you are required to have tire chains on your car or 4×4 with snow tires even to access Wrightwood both from 138 from the east or N4 from the west.
The weather service is saying we will have storms thru Wednesday this week. It looks like we will have plenty of snow plenty for snow play for a while.
If you do need to come up make sure you are ready for winter travel and have tire chains that fit you car and know how to install them. Chains are available at the Shell gas station at the I15 and 138 and also at Mt Top Mini Mart
