Damn work haha. Will chains be required tomorrow morning? It's suppose to snow a bit there, no? I checked this morning & the site said yes chains were needed for the ride up today.

Not only were chains needed, but they made you put them on less than a mile into the mountain. Ive never had to put them on that soon. Pretty much right off the freeway. On the way down it wasnt too bad after about half way. It was pouring snow when I left around 3, but I couldnt tell you what the story will be tomorrow. Definitely have the chains on standby though.

I also saw an SUV spin out into the snowbank in my rearview, and an Audi crash into the snowbank two cars ahead of me, both on my way up. It was pretty nasty.

So how was it today? My friend & I went to Mt. High & boy was it nice to get some better quality snow than what I've ridden this season. Was freakin' packed, though!

Went yesterday. Ice early on. Slushy by noon. Still, it was worth going. I doubt there will be many good days ahead. Not really snow making conditions at night and serious snow melting conditions during the day all week. Even mammoth is around 60 degrees most of the week. Unless there is a good storm just outside the current forecast, I think the board will go on the wall for another 8-9 months.

I went last Saturday to Mt. High & had a great time with that new snow. I think I will go one more time this season. I imagine Bear will still have a bit more snow than Mt. High so I'll try going there.

I try and follow the tahoe weather guy from opensnow. Obviously the storms up there don't always result in snow/rain down here in SoCal but it's a semi good determinant for what's ahead. Anyway, he's predicting a much cooler couple of weeks with some moderate storms starting this weekend....again, in Tahoe. He also forecasted this dry/warm spell this week and doesn't appear to be to concerned with it. If you remember, there was quite the warm weather down here before this last storm, that dropped about a foot in bear, so winter may not be quite over yet. we'll see...hoping to get at least another couple days and I have a trip to Mammoth planned at the end of March.

Anyone go to Snow Valley? I know it's kind of a dumpy resort but for the price it's not bad and 80% of the people that go there stick to the bottom run. Pretty good when there is snow, sadly that's kind of the issue with that place. I'm not a park guy but my kid enjoys it and it's decent. Probably as good as snow summit's, probably nothing compared to Bear's.
