When meteorologists forecast snow in the local mountains, most Southern California folks feel drawn to head toward the powdery white stuff. But where can you go? Of course, if you ski or snowboard, you can head to a ski resort. But what if all you want to do is play in the snow? It is unsafe to park along the side of the highway, set up a barbecue and let your kids play in a turnout.
Several great resorts are located in the San Bernardino Mountains. But none may be as perfect for snow enthusiasts as Snow Valley. The perfect destination for snowboarding, skiing or simply enjoying ski-lifted snow play, Snow Valley Mountain Resort is located near Lake Arrowhead, right off Highway 18, in Running Springs. So schedule some time off work, book a fully-furnished Lake Arrowhead home, mountain cabin, lakefront house, condo, lake view home or spacious home near the lake through Arrowhead Property Rental.

But before you head up to ski or play safely on the slopes, you need snow! Thankfully, even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, Snow Valley has machine-groomed slopes. Before you head up the hill, inquire about road conditions. First, check out Snow Valley Conditions and follow that up with a check on NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
