At this time I would not recommend coming up for snowplay.

Since the Governor’s issue of “stay at home” order. We do NOT recommending anyone to come up at this time.

We are all in this together let’s hope we can flatten the curve and get back to our normal life SOON.



Pictures above were taken this morning. The snow play conditions area GREAT we received about 4″ of snow this week. So now is a good time to come on up and spend a day in the snow with your family. Stop by Mountain Hardware 1390 Hwy 2 in Wrightwood, Ca 92397 and we can give you a map to find the best conditions.


Happy Valentine Day
The weather is spectacular here. Blue sky, light winds and the temperature is in the mid 40’s.
All the open roads are open and clear with NO tire chain required.
So this is a GREAT weekend to throw the kids in the car and come on up for a FUN family day in the snow in your National Forest/Monument…. See More

We got about 4” of snow last night. There are chain controls before Mountain High East. It is also very windy in the higher elevations. So chains will be required to get to any snowplay today. Drive safely.
