Winter conditions in Lake Arrowhead and Crestline

Hello and Happy New Year!

Lake Gregory, Crestline. Winter conditions in Lake Arrowhead and CrestlineWinter conditions in Lake Arrowhead and Crestline have arrived in the mountains.  We have been experiencing some really cold weather and very icy conditions.  Take heart we hear in the next few days we are going to thaw out a bit.  Going to the mountains can be fun in the winter if you and your car are prepared.

Rule number 1. Dress for cold weather.  Gloves, sweaters, hats, boots and good warm coats are a must.  Remember the weather can change on you in a very short time a mile up and higher.  If it warms up you can always take layers off, but when it gets cold and you don't have the warm gear it can be a real bummer as well as dangerous should you get stuck or worse.  Tennis shoes and flip flops do not cut it in the snow!! 
Rule number 2.
    Be sure your car is equipped properly when going Crest Lodge in Crestline, Lake Drive in snow, Lake Arrowhead and Crestline Winter conditionsup into the mountains. It's winter and that means ice and snow.  ALWAYS travel from November to May with your winter car gear.  Chains that fit and are not broken and it is a good thing to know how to put them on.  Practice before getting stuck in a ditch on the side of the road or actually stuck in the middle of the road blocking traffic. We’ve seen more accidents happen because someone thought they could make it and then got stuck. You need a piece of carpet or heavy rug to use to lay on. Take it from us, it is not fun laying in the snow and slush.  Have a shovel in the car.  Moving snow and ice with your hands gets very cold (even with gloves).

Have a bag of salt in the car.  Sometimes that is all it takes to clear an icy patch so you can drive over it when you are stuck.  A small axe can come in handy to cut tree bows down to put under the wheels to get you out of a jam (you never know when you might need firewood either).  Carry extra blankets in case you get stranded and always have a full tank of gas.  Have water in the car, the icyLake Arrowhead Village, Winter conditions in Lake Arrowhead and Crestline wind will really dry you out.

Now you are ready to come up and check out all the winter fun here in Lake Arrowhead and beyond! Please take your trash out with you when you leave and not by the side of the road or in the forest.

 If you happen to fall in love with "our place" and would like your own cozy cabin to sit by the fire after having that fun day in the snow give us a call.  Here is one that is just waiting for you. Spruce Drive in Arrowbear by the lake!  
Come On ..."Take The High Road To Great Mountain Living" Hope to see you soon!


Take care,

Kerry Jenkins and Amy Steele

Hi Amy and Kerry, I am not too far from you guys. I am down the mountain in Fontana and we are really feeling the winter conditions. I have been waking up to ice on the car windows. Thanks for sharing these great tips and stay warm up there.
