So cal TR /snow report San Jacinto 12-1-18

Post by overheadx2 » Mon Dec 03, 2018 4:36 pm

Not sure if this is snow or outside of the sierra related. Did a weekend trip from Palm springs tram to San Jacinto Peak (approx 12, miles 2800'). No crowd for the 8 AM tram, big crowd for the 5PM tram with a 45 minute wait. (I think every one leaves when the sun starts to set around 4:30).

Good snow with 6" at the tram, 1' at round Valley and 1.5 to 2' at the summit with some deeper drift spots.

The trail was slightly used on Saturday morning at 9 AM and was well used by the afternoon. Lots of fresh untouched snow every where off the main trail for snow shoes. Not enough snow at this time for skis. Its the first time there in the winter and it was very pretty.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Overheadx2, you outdid yourself on those pictures especially the one with the icicles. Glad to see snow in December finally.
