Clear skies on the mountain this week with advisory level winds out of the northeast and day time highs well above average. Although we should see temps on the mountain in the 60’s be sure and dress warm as the gusty winds will cool things down. We will be open for scenic rides to the Top of the Notch restaurant snow tubing, skiing and snowboarding on lifts #2 & #3.
The Gulch & Toilet Bowl to Bonanza are groomed and will hold up nicely throughout the day. As for the rest of the mountain we are waiting for the thaw. With the warm temps it should be soon but the winds have been keeping that from happening. Short Cut to Robins and Skyline are groomed and should have good turns this morning. We are hopeful that the wind doesn’t blow away all the soft snow by afternoon. The rest of the mountain will remain closed until we get some thawing conditions are fresh snow. Which could be a couple weeks away. However there are some long range forecasters that have begun beating the drum to the tune of a a heavily influenced El Nino weather pattern beginning at the end of February and through the start of March. Sounds good to me.
See you on the mountain.

The Top of the Notch Restaurant is a full service restaurant with sweeping views of the LA basin located at 7800′ above sea level in the San Gabriel Mountains. Visitors reach the restaurant by hiking, or via the Sugarpine chairlift. The restaurant operates seven days a week during the ski season, and on weekends once winter operations have concluded. The Notch serves casual American food, in a beautiful alpine environment.
Sugar Pine Chair Lift (chair 1) ferries riders from our parking lot to the Top of the Notch Restaurant. It gives access to miles of hiking trails including the popular route across Devils Backbone to the summit of Mt San Antonio (Mt Baldy). The ride is approximately 17 minutes and travels a distance of 1 mile.
