Is the dam construction affecting traffic? Going UTH on Friday the 2nd and wondering which way is better this year....

Depending on when, there has been some delays at the Dam due to construction. I prefer hwy 38 over the 330/18 anyway so not an impact to me. I use the back way (Hwy 18 via Lucerne) a lot as my folks live in Palm Springs.

Gotta agree with Mel, thats an easy way uth. Frankly have to admit I've never seen the cement plane though.

I have usually used the 330/18 and on occasion used 38 (nice easy drive)
However I have never used the 15 (coming from SD) to ? Bear Valley Rd to 18 the back way......does that add a lot of time verus 38? Curves don't bother me but traffic kills me... Thanks for all the input....

I use 15 to Bear Valley to 18 when I bring up the boat. It adds about a half hour to the drive. Easy driving though.

330/18. I'm on the west side so the extra time taking the other routes is just not really worth it unless there is an accident or construction.

Y'know, Nietzsche says: "Out of chaos comes order."

I prefer 18 to Victimville as well. Cement plane? I bet it has rocky landings and take offs.

Sorry that didn't work out for you. But until Summer you might try the Palm Springs tram. You can do the same thing riding up in a rotating car and see what the other side of San Gorgonio looks like. I hear there is good food at the top and you can play in the snow if you like

Thank you guys so much about the chair lift rules and lunch at the top at Snow Summit. My husband and I didn't know the rules since we have only ridden the chair lift in the summer months. Did NOT know it was running half speed. You are all so helpful with this question. Makes sense now. We usually only come up Spring - Fall so not bring skiers we had no idea of any of this stuff. Thanks again.

Debora, to touch on what AR said, the conditional use permit with the forest service a. won't allow it and 2, the lift is running at full speed, we slow it to about half speed during the summer for guests to easily get on & off the chair. Additionally you would need proper footwear to be up walking around on the snow, getting off at the top can be a steep, sheet of ice, not easy to walk on. And last thing we need is people on the slopes hiking around in their flip flops getting run over by skiers & snowboarders. Many safety concerns...

Deborah it is a safety issue in winter plus they would have to bring the lift speed to almost a dead stop for foot traffic. They don't even like having the lift personell come down that way.
