Robert Bernstein: Fun Playing in the Snow at Mt. Pinos

Getting there a bit challenging, but recent storms have brought plenty of snow


Our recent rains have brought plenty of snow to Mt. Pinos, near Frazier Park. Just a couple of hours driving to Frazier Park from Santa Barbara via Route 126, but the last bit was slow going.

The road to Mt Pinos requires chains. A hassle to put on chains. Then a slow slog with chains for nine miles.

Mostly the road is clear and the clear areas are where you have to go really slow not to break the chains.

Still, it was all worth it to play in the snow!

No fancy skiing or snow boarding. Just being a kid again! I even brought my Flexible Flyer sled from my childhood back east!

However, the recent snow came from an Alaska storm, so it was very fluffy snow. Not good for a Flexible Flyer sled, but great for disks and boat-shaped sleds!

Here are my video clips and photos!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
