Good Morning

It looks like a GREAT snow play day.  I was up in the snow play this morning.

The roads are clear and open there is generally 6″-12″ of snow in most areas.  the temperature is in the mid 40’s.

So throw the kids in the car and come on up for a fun family day in the 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.

Today will be a GREAT day

All main roads to Wrightwood are open today yahoo.

Lots of new snow 16-24″ in the snow play areas

NO chain required lots of new snow.

So get going early as the only problem I see today is that everybody will want to come play in the snow.  Do not forget Monday is also a holiday for a lot of people.  So if you sleep in today make a plan to get here in Wrightwood by 9 am on Monday and you will missed most of the traffic problems
