High elevations of Southern California continue to hold snow. In places, it’s steep and dangerous. Multiple rescues and falls have already occurred. Don’t underestimate the risk, travel with snow safety skills and equipment and consider turning around.

Some notable problem areas include, but are not limited to:

  • San Jacinto Mountains (especially Apache Peak and Fuller Ridge)
  • San Bernadino Mountains (between Mission Creek and Big Bear)
  • San Gabriels Mountains (especially Mount Baden Powell and the trail north of there)
