Damn you drive fast when I'm not around!

Cool video. Forest looks great 3x time would have been the way I like to roll sometimes.
I guess I will have to start learning the numbers for the roads

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

2N93 still hasn't opened for the season yet. Also, the gate on 2N13 at 3N14 is still closed. 2N13 is the road to get to Butler Peak.

Have you heard if the public will be allowed to drive to Butler Peak this summer?

Update from yesterday - The snow patch is barely noticeable on 3N12, in fact we saw a small Honda car (Civic, I think) that I have to assume passed over the snow patch unless they drove up & turned around before it.
We completed the eastern section of 3N08 - map: [Click Here]. 4WD is a must for this part of the road as there is a steep, rocky section of the road.
3N14 from 3N08 to Big Pine Flat is in great shape and I believe a passenger car would have no trouble making it from Fawnskin to Big Pine Flat on this route - map: [Click Here]
From Big Pine Flat you can head East on 3N16 which is supposed to be a good road (green rating, I believe). But there is a section just east of Big Pine Flat that had seen much erosion in the past few years. We did not need 4WD for any of this road yesterday. We went all the way to 2N09 - map: [Click Here] but the higher clearance of the Tundra was nice to have. There was one spot where I tried to cross a rutted section on the road and ended up having only my left front and right rear wheels on the ground! I had to back up and approach the rut from a different angle to get through.
3N97 - map: [Click Here] and 3N04Y - map: [Click Here] have been closed, I believe, since the Butler 2 Fire. They still have closed gates at the A & B markers on the previous 2 map links.

A change of underwear is helpful, also

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.
