Here's a live shot of from the webcam atop Bear Mountain, on Chair 9 (Goldmine Mountain). Big Bear is foretasted to have snow for three days straight. Now's the time to book your vacation rental reservation at the Green Gable Cottage for your next snow-play trip, be it skiing, snowboarding, or snow shoeing!
Full Snow Report for January 5th, 2016:
Snow will continue through this afternoon, locally heavy at times with southwest winds 5-15mph as temperature drop into the lower 30's; travel with caution as snow continues to fall with the temperature, roads will become very slippery with several inches of snow likely through tonight! Snow showers may taper off a bit tonight into early Wednesday before our next storm rolls in, this one a bit colder with stronger winds and areas of blowing or drifting snow, even blizzard like conditions possible by Wednesday night; temperatures will remain in the 30's through the end of the week as lows drop into the 20's; also looking at gusty southwest winds 20-30mph at times. The Snow level will gradually lower to around 4,000 feet by Friday where accumulations of at least 1-2 feet are still expected after all is said & done; with locally higher amounts possible up at resort level. If travel plans bring you into the mountains through the weekend, be prepared for rapidly changing weather with near white out conditions; always carry tire chains. It now appears additional weaker disturbances will pass through the area again Friday and Saturday, so we'll keep a lingering chance of snow showers around with a break expected towards Sunday and/or Monday. The southern branch of the jet stream should remain fairly active throughout this month and likely into February; a direct result of El Nino so be ready for just about everything mother nature has to throw at us.
