    I want to take a trip to big bear middle of December, but it looks like there's gonna be no snow. Anyone live around there and could give me some insight? I don't wanna go if there's no snow up there.

    Gotcha... I'd think there would be much more come January. I went last year for new years and they were only getting their 2nd storm of the season I think, and the first one was just a few days before lol.

    Wait for El Nino...if it ever happens.

    Yea depends on where you're at. I had friends go on trails and said there was no snow. The trail I go on, had so much snow we couldn't push forward and had to turn around after a mile or so. Just depends on where you go. I usually do crab flats road.

    This was last year up Rim of the world drive to Coxey Rd. I think we stopped at 3N93 because they stop clearing the roads at that point.
