When does snow hit for skiing/snowboarding?
« on: 11/05/17 11:33AM »
Never hit the mountains in CA...but looking to surf, ski, and desert ride in one epic day of fun

When does Baldy or Big Bear get snow?

(And if there's a spot to ride Moto on ice or snow...I would gladly are that to the mix)

There may be a little snow in December but the bigger storms typically don't happen until Jan-Mar; Big Bear also makes snow.  Just keep an eye on the weather forecast; if there is a big rain event coming in, it usually means snow in the mountains from now on.  Also best to hit it up during the week because both places turn into a zoo on the weekends.

Also, there are dirt trails from the desert on the north side of Big Bear that go all the way up the mountain.  That should give you dirt and snow riding in one day if you time it right.

I am seeing the same...Mount baldy snow fall history has 4-12" maybe 1-3 times Jan/Feb....Big Bear maybe once in December, but mostly in Jan/Feb

that gives me 2 months to have my dirt bike ready (maybe with studded tires)...then just load the surf board, wet suit, and dirt bike into the truck...surf 6:30-8ish am, drive to big bear for 10:30ish to ski a couple hours, then dirt ride from 1pm-sunset...then nap and come home.

Don't forget they have lights so you can hit the mountain last and ski well after dark.

The most logical way to do it from highest to lowest risk and also considering traffic (if doing it on a weekday): Surf first, you live close to the beach and trying to paddle while tired is no bueno, hit the Malcolm Smith Trail (being in daylight is key and breaking down/being stranded after dark can be dangerous), finally, hit the slopes (as Doug mentioned the resorts have lights to extend your enjoyment).  Finish the day by soaking in the hot tub at one the resort area hotels.  8)
Every day is ride to work day!
