HEY THERE!!!  Here is a picture of the most recent snow in Frazier Park...

Although some snow has melted, there is plenty of snow play at higher elevations, and the road conditions are perfect in Frazier Park and on the I5.

My doggy loves, loves, loves the snow.  His mood is the very best when he is in the snow.  These are the best pic's I could get because he moves so dang fast...  He will go for hours and for miles and stay in the greatest mood without getting tired.

I adopted him when he was 6 months old.  I have no idea what kind of dog he is but he has got to be some sort of snow dog, fow show ;)

My other dog, a shepherd/wolf mix, is in the heated house.  She doesn't do snow ;)

Hey there everyone!!!  Like I promised, I went up yesterday, about 2:30 p.m., and took some pictures.  These pics are taken at the top of Mt Pinos.  The snow level is down to about 3 miles from the top.  Just an FYI, at the top, in the parking lot, there is a Nordic Base Building, and if you go to the left or right of it, you will find really fun trails to play in the snow.

Enjoy your day...

Hey there.

Got a few comments asking about an adventure pass.  So, here is a link where you can pick a place in a city near you or pick an online vendor to purchase your day or year pass.

Hey everyone!!!

It is the perfect time to head on up to play in the snow.  The snow level is as low as Gorman, which is the exit just before Frazier Mountain Park Road when you are coming from Los Angeles County.

This is good news because you will not have to drive very far from the freeway to play in the snow.

The road conditions are excellent on the Interstate 5 so you will have a lovely drive all the way up.

If you plan on coming to Frazier Park, or to the higher elevations right now, it is a good idea that you bring chains.  Although, if you have a four wheel drive or an all wheel drive, you should be good.

The temperatures are very low right now, in the low 30's, and that means icy roads.

Yesterday, I was driving on the main road and there was lots of people pulled over to the side playing in the snow.  In front of me, there was a big white Ford Expedition, and he was driving like he was in So Cal, like he was in a hurry to get somewhere, and then he hit black ice.  He went spinning off the side of the road, off into the snow, and into the barbed wire fence.  Needless to say, the poor poor fellow had to get towed out of the snow.  Luckily, he did not run anyone over.

What I am trying to say is, be careful out there.  When it rains, it is wet, and we should slow down.  When there is snow, there is ice on the road, and we should slow down.  The roads look clear and that is why we call it black ice.  The ice looks like the road. 

When it snows, and the temperatures are low, like they are now, I only drive my 4X4 because I don't want to be pulled out of the snow, like the guy yesterday, LOL!!! 

Have a great time, and enjoy your day...

Hi everyone!!!

Got a lot of comments yesterday via cell phone and was unable to post because I wasn't near a computer and that is why there was only a post title.  That's all my cell phone would let me do, lol.

Any who...

There is absolutely no snow in Frazier Park at this very moment, December 28, 2010, 5:45 a.m.

There is snow at the very highest level, up beyond Frazier Park, but nothing like we are use to playing in.

If you have been up here when we have had plenty of snow and really enjoyed yourself you may be a little disappointed if you come up now, attempt to go to the top, and there is not enough snow to play in. 

That's all I got.  I hope I didn't kill your joy I am just here to provide what information I have and I know it is a long drive from LA and Bakersfield.

Have a great day!!!

Hiking In Frazier Park CA

The weather in Frazier Park, CA is absolutely spectacular today.  A sweet 70 degrees and the perfect weather to go hiking in.

There is ton's of hiking trails in Frazier Park CA.  I live in Frazier Park and I could hit several hiking trails walking from my front door.

I thought I would start a series of posts discussing the great hiking trails we have in Frazier Park.  The best place to start is my all time favorite hiking trail which is the McGill Trail.

There are several reasons why this is my all time favoritest trail.  :-)

Reason #1 = This trail is perfectly defined and you cannot get lost, which is excellent for beginners.

Reason #2 = This trail ends at a camp ground (The McGill Camp Ground) where you can hike up and then camp.

Reason #3 = This trail is steep enough to get your heart rate going.

Reason #4 = This trail is approximately 3 3/4 miles long, which is a perfect hike when you are gaining elevation.

Reason #5 = This trail is a beautiful hike with spectacular views of the ranches below.

Reason #6 = This trail is the first of three connected trails that takes you to the very top of Mt Pinos Recreation Area.  The total hike is approximately 10 miles.

Reason #7 = This trail is actually marked with a sign that says, "McGill Trail."  Lots of trails up here have no signs.

Reason #8 = There is parking at the beginning of the McGill Trail.

Reason #9 = It is at the bottom of Mt Pinos and therefore, you don't have to drive very far.

Okay, so I am out of reasons, for now, but this hike is the ultimate hike on the mountain, and I LOVE IT!

So, how do you get to McGill Trail? 

Whether you are traveling North or South on the 'Golden State Freeway' Interstate 5 Freeway you exit 'Frazier Mountain Park Road' and go West (really the only option unless you want to end up in a dead end).  You will travel West for approximately 12 miles and then you will see a fork in the road.  Follow to your left towards Mt Pinos Recreation Area.  Do not go to the right! 

Approximately one mile after veering left on the fork in the road, you will see a little spot of dirt that you can park on the right side of the road.  You will see a brown sign that says 'McGill Trail'.

There you have it.  My first post on hiking trails in Frazier Park CA. 

Hope you have fun.

Until next post, have a wonderful wonderful rest of the week.

There is plenty of snow play in Frazier Park CA - 3/12/2010

Hey everyone, man o man am I tired.  I went 4X4'n all day today.  Just wanted to show you some pic's of my drive up to Mt Pinos Recreation area so you will know how much snow there is. 

These are pictures of me drivin up to Mt Pinos Recreation Area this morning about 7 or 8 a.m. 

The picture of the building is the Nordic Base at the top of Mt Pinos Recreation area and then there is the parking lot.

Although there are signs that say, 'chains required' it is not necessary unless it snows tonight or tomorrow, and there is a chance of snow in the a.m. that is predicted in the forecast.  The roads are dry with some patches of melting snow that may turn into ice.  Please drive careful and have a great time.

I will try to post early tomorrow morning if it does snow to let you know the conditions. 

Please don't forget to keep our forest clean and pick up all and any trash, thank you.

There is plenty of snow play!!!

Is There Still Snow In Frazier Park CA?


There is still snow in Frazier Park CA. 

We got a couple of inches the other day. 

Many people are a little confused about where Frazier Park is, and if you are one of those many people, please read my post on 'Snow In Frazier Park'.  Just be advised that when you exit the freeway, off Frazier Mountain Park Rd exit, you are not yet is Frazier Park CA, and you will not see snow (unless it snows tonight but there is no snow in the forecast).

If you would like to know where the best place is to go sledding, in the snow, off Frazier Mountain Park Rd, then please read my post on 'Snow Play In Frazier Park'.  The only place that will have enough snow, to sled on, is the third place, I write about, in the post.  There are several places between the second and third places, I write about in the post.

NO CHAINS ARE REQUIRED in order to go to the places I indicate in the post 'Snow Play In Frazier Park'.    

The 5 Freeway is open!

The road conditions are great!

The weather is awesome!  Today it got up to 67 degrees and it was very sunny with scattered clouds, every so often.

The weather in Frazier Park CA, should be sunny and warm tomorrow.  Warm to us is above 50, so if you think it is cold when it is below 70 (which most So Cal peeps do) then it will be cold to you.  ;-)

There may be scattered clouds, which makes it colder.

Well, I hope this is helpful, we love it when you visit so have a good time and please pick up your trash, lol...

We Got New Snow In Frazier Park CA Yesterday

Hey everyone!

It snowed off and on in Frazier Park CA, yesterday.  We got about an inch or two. 

Current snow conditions in Frazier Park CA are it is sunny and 41 degrees, Wednesday, February 10, 2010, at 9:11 a.m.



Although, the sun was out when I left yesterday morning about 8 a.m. and when I got home, around 11:30 a.m., I was sliding all over on the snow in my SUV.  Check the forecast for Frazier Park CA.  Usually when it says 90 to 100% chance of snow in Frazier Park CA, they are right.  Not so right when it is less percent.

I can see about five miles east, from my front balcony (I am at 5000 feet) and I see clouds, same as yesterday morning.

Snow Play In Frazier Park CA

There is still snow in Frazier Park California.

For snow play in Frazier Park California, exit Frazier Mountain Park off the I 5 freeway and go west.  Frazier Park is 3 miles west of I 5 freeway.  The best way to tell when you are in Frazier Park is when you get to the second four way stop that has a blinking red light.  The cross street, at the blinking red light, is Monterey Trail. 

The first place for snow play in Frazier Park California is at the second stop sign off the freeway at the Park in Frazier Park.  The snow there is a bit low right now and will be melted soon if it doesn't snow again.

The second place for snow play, in Frazier Park California, is not necessarily in Frazier Park.  It is about 5 miles past Frazier Park on the left side of the main road.  It is a small hill that everyone goes sledding on in the Las Padres National Forest.

The third place for snow play, in Frazier Park California, is about 14 miles past Frazier Park.  When you come to the fork in the road, you make a left, and that will bring you up to Mt. Pinos Recreation Area.  At the very top, there is excellent sledding and snow play.

There are several other places to play in the snow, in Frazier Park California, on the way up to Mt. Pinos Recreation Area, that you will see on the way just make sure not to park in the road or CHP will get you.

As far as snow chains are concerned, you won't need any the first five or ten miles.  It is very wise to bring snow chains along.  If you have a 4X4 vehicle, you will be much safer.

See you in Frazier Park for snow play!!!

This is actually Frazier Park CA Snow at 10 am, January 21, 2010.

The reason I say 'actually' is because the News Media films Lebec, the city you are in when you exit Frazier Mountain Park Road, off the I 5.  Also, when people come up here to play in the snow, if they don't park at the Post Office (which is a no no btw), they drive past Frazier Park to Mt Pinos Recreation Area, which is not Frazier Park.


There is tons of snow in Frazier Park.  The I 5 is open but the CHP is slowing traffic due to the icy roads.

Looks like we got a couple feet of snow over the last two days. 

It is currently 8:30 a.m., 34 degrees, and it is snowing. 

I am not sure about right now but the CHP usually will not let vehicles through to Frazier Park from Lebec, unless you have an ID, that shows you live here, and chains on your tires.

Looks like the I 5 will probably close again if it continues to snow.

The weather sites say snow until Friday night and possibly to Saturday Morning.

Snow In Frazier Park CA

This is Bo in the Snow! 


Well, yes there is.  After some blizzardous (I love that word) conditions, the snow finally stopped, for now.

When I woke up this morning it wasn't snowing at all.  That was surprising because they said it would snow all night.

Well, it started to snow this morning and then it turned into near blizzard.  It is now a little after 5 p.m. and the snow has stopped, for now.

They say it is gonna snow until Friday Night.

There Is Snow In Frazier Park

Yes indeed, there is snow in Frazier Park, CA.  This is a picture of a bus that was slanted in the middle of the road because of the ice.  I was on my way home around 1 p.m., about 2 hours after it started snowing, and as I headed up Mt. Pinos Way (our main road in town) I discovered the bus, slanted taking up all lanes. 

Unfortunately, I had to stop, and guess what?  That's right, I got stuck.  I couldn't head up the hill anymore because of the ice and so I started to slowly reverse my car to the right side of the road, so I could park.  I was in the X-Terra, which cannot get through snow for nothin.  I should have been in Bocephus Savage, our Jeep Grand Cherokee.  Now that vehicle can drive in any kind of snow and pull other cars out, to boot.

As I was in reverse, crazy little miss teenager passes me on the left with a pick-up truck, without four wheel drive.  Her dilemma was worse then mine because she blocked the tow truck, as the driver was putting his chains on so he could tow the bus.

OMG!  He let her have it.  Took a while for her to move her truck out of the way, and the tow truck driver helped her, as he cursed away.  LOL!  This was quite the entertainment.

This is the CHP on scene

Above is the tow truck that straightened the bus, not the one that was going to tow it.

Then you have the bus sliding, yes sliding, down the street.

And below is the bus sliding, yes sliding, further down the street.  The big truck you see on the right is the truck that was going to tow the bus.

The joys of the snow in Frazier Park, aye?  It was fun for me except I had to hike home and get Bocephus and return to the X-Terra to get all my stuff.

Good times!  And more snow on the way!

Frazier Park CA in January

The weather has been a bit weird for January in Frazier Park, CA.  We usually have snow on the ground or it is snowing.  It has been so warm here and I think it has only snowed two or three times this winter.

Needless to say, we don't have snow right now.  Yesterday was warm and sunny with some clouds. 

Yesterday, around 11 am I was walking Simon, one of my dogs, and it was nice and warm.  The clouds were scattered and I could tell we would get some moisture today. 

When I looked up in the clouds I said, to Simon, "Looks like we might get some snow tomorrow."

Guess what, it rained.  I woke up early, and I mean early, this morning to the sound of rain.

POOP!  I want snow! 

I have hardly had to use the heater or the fire place this winter during the day.  Usually, the heater is on 24-7 in the winter and the fireplace is a blazin every night.  Not this year though.

Well, they say we will get a storm this weekend.  Who is they?  Those dagged burned weather peeps.

Let's hope for the best, meaning a shizzz load of snow, eh?

The only good thing about not having snow is the snow bunnies (that is what we call city folk that come up for the snow) aren't leaving their trash every where. 

Don't get me wrong, we love you snow bunnies, just not your trash.  There are trash cans you know.

Well, until next post...
