So cal snow report

Post by overheadx2 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:02 pm

Just a heads up for the so cal group, drove to Big Bear today to try and do some shoeing or skiing. About a foot at Big Bear 7k’, so the northwest (fawnskin) side and Jenks Lake are out due to the mud below 7k’. 2 x 3’ of snow at the 8k mark so Onyx summit and sugar loaf areas seem to be the place to be. Headed there in the AM to try and get some skiing in.

So I headed up to Onyx summit by big bear. The snow was incredible today by so cal standards. 2 to 3 foot and pretty dry. I didn’t hike very far since the wife and do were struggling a little. Probably hiked 3 to 4 miles before we turned around. Hiked the fire road just north of Onyx summit that goes to sugar loaf peak. no tracks and some pretty deep snow. If you are looking for some good XC snow it’s there right now.

Nice photos. Now to the snow gods, praying for a constant supply through April.
