earlier the better -- when my kids were young we'd "launch" from El
Cajon by 8am sharp! -- things are WORSE now -- [ more crowded ] but the rule still applys -- get there EARLY! make shure
you have yer Adventure Pass BEFORE you park or it will be an expensive lesson in preparedness -- Adventure Pass is $5 for
a single day -- OR -- $30 for an entire YEAR [ a really GOOD deal ] better still, you can get a "second vehicle pass
*with* it, for an additional $5, good for the ENTIRE year as well -- this is what we've done since it became available
and it's worked WELL when we have 2 vehicles going up togeather.
this is IMPORTANT --
is the premier snow play destination in San Diego County!
been comin here to snowplay since I was a youngun --
brought my kids -- soon'l be bringin my grandkids :)
when Mother Nature bestows a white blanket on the mountain,
seems like a good portion of the population of San Diego and surroundin areas head up from the flatlands to enjoy a winter
wonderland -- KEY -- is to BE PREPARED
every year, I see folks in shorts & flipflops arrivin w-OUT snowchains
to try to climb the windin 2 lane highway to git to the snowplay areas --
folks -- be aware -- this is NOT the
flatlands! -- weather conditions can change suddenly in winter from a nice sunny day to a violent snowstorm -- roads turn
icy & slick in moments -- easy to git hurt up here if yer not carefull and prepared -- volunteer fire dept gits overworked
many snow days doin rescues -- and I myself, have pulled many unwary travellers outta the ditches & sideroads -- even
on NICE days.
if yer up here in the winter BRING yer snowchains -- and KNOW how to install em properly on yer
tires -- or suffer ;)
best place to GIT snowchains -- and SNOWCHAINS101 withem so's ya know how to do it easily
EVERY snowchains set sold fitted exactly to yer tires while ya watch AND participate by the San Diego Highwayman
oh, and what ya bring up -- please take back down withya -- [ trash, cardboard, plastic, ect ]
Take nothin from the mountain but photographs!
Leave nothin but footprints
Don't fergit to GIT
yer "Adventure Pass" BEFORE ya head up!
