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 --
Mt Laguna 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 :)
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 is http://snowtraction.com
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 ]
from the mountain but photographs!
Leave nothin but footprints
Don't fergit to GIT yer "Adventure Pass" BEFORE
ya head up!
