Come To Lake Arrowhead in the Winter ~But Always Be Prepared

Lake Arrowhead is having one of its best winters in YEARS! Maybe Snow in Lake Arrowhead10. We're getting one snow storm after another, with plenty of rain in-between.  Our lake level was down approx. 12 feet in December, but is now only 1.3 feet from being full.  That is wonderful news! * Remember 1" of rain equals about 3" of lake rise.  I was previewing a lakefront estate the other day and the water was lapping at the properties breaker wall, where only last summer, one could sit up lawn chairs in the sandy dirt below that same wall. 


Not only did our lake need the rain, so did our precious forest. Trees were desperate for liquid. Residents were concerned about the wretched bark beetle making its way back to our mountain because, as we know, those nasty bugs depend on a drought situation, which we are/were in. Hopefully, with the rain we've received, we've dodged a bullet.


Rain and snow can bring issues with roadways. We've had many problems the past weeks, like Hwy 18 at the Green Valley Lake turn off, being closed due to the road being damaged (could be closed for weeks). This means you cannot access Snow Valley Ski Resort or Big Bear by traveling this direction. Check with road closures before heading up. 


Many folks were caught off guard during some of our storms and winter day in lake arrowheaddriving prove to be almost impossible at times, quite often because they were not prepared and were not carrying snow chains in their vehicles.   Regardless of the weather, make sure you carry chains in your vehicle.  


Day visitors; (all visitors actually), if you come up for the day to play in the snow and enjoy our forest, please take out what you bring in.


Most importantly, come up to the mountains. Come up for a day, or stay forever. You're all welcome. Just be prepared.
