You can never be too safe when driving on mountain roads (well, any road); especially in the winter. Our weather can change on a dime; one moment it may be clear and sunny, and the next snowy. I've compiled a list of links to help you find out weather conditions, as well as road conditions. It's a good idea to check these all times of year before heading up:
WEATHER IN LAKE ARROWHEAD. You can actually set this for any other town, but this one is for Lake Arrowhead.
In my car, I always keep an extra pair of shoes/boots, socks, mitten/gloves, blanket, small shovel, flashlight, couple bottles of water and a few snack bars. You just never know what can happen during one of Mother Nature's fits.
CALTRANS California Department of Transportation has one of the best sites to find out about road conditions. Just type in the highway/freeway and it displays the current conditons. This is great for the mountains! Click HERE to view ALL California Roads. If you're stopped by the California Highway Patrol during a snow storm, or even after its past, you MAY be ask to show your "Car chains.) There are time you MUST chain up, so just be prepaared ahead of time.
LAKE ARROWHEAD VILLAGE WEBCAM A fun site to actually see what IT LOOKS LIKE in Lake Arrowhead (The Village). I use it to see how crowded it is before I head over there to eat or shop. :-)
