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!
