SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Recent and incoming winter weather has prompted officials with San Bernardino National Forest to reduce fire restrictions beginning Wed., Dec. 5, 2018. The new restrictions mean:

• Campfires will again be allowed at all U.S. Forest Service campgrounds on the forest. Most of them, however, are currently closed for the winter season, but fires at yellow-post sites (semi-developed campsites) are now allowed where a Forest Service-provided fire ring is present. Campfires outside official fire rings are not allowed on the San Bernardino National Forest under these restrictions.

• Target shooting will also be allowed at designated areas. Visitors participating in this activity must check the daily fire danger rating at 909-383-2997 and listen for the area they plan to shoot within. They must use the correct types of firearms, ammunition and targets and pick up all targets, casings and any other trash before leaving. Target shooting information can be found on the forest’s target shooting guide.

See attached Forest Service Order Below:

That's great, now that the forest and all campsites are closed off for winter. Actually i don't mind being home by a nice fire with a nice crockpot of something hot and good. Close enough to camping butcwith all the modern inconveniences...

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER FOR TRAVELERS... DON'T ALWAYS TRUST YOUR MAPPING APPS & STAY ON DESIGNATED HIGHWAYS. RESCUE PERSONNEL HAS HAD TO PULL SEVERAL PEOPLE OUT OF FOREST SERVICE ROADS GETTING STUCK OR IN ACCIDENTS. GOOGLE MAPS HAS BEEN RE-ROUTING VISITORS FROM GREEN VALLEY LAKE TO FAWNSKIN VIA CRAB FLATS ROAD-3N16/2N12. THESE ROADS CAN BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT AND DANGEROUS IN THE SUMMER DURING NORMAL CONDITIONS!!!

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO A WINTER STORM WARNING NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH EARLY MONDAY MORNING. Expecting scattered snow showers tonight through Sunday morning with snowfall increasing in coverage and intensity Sunday afternoon & night. Snowfall amounts of 4-8" are likely above 4,000 feet with around a foot or more "possible" above 5,000 feet. We will also experience frigid temperatures with chill values below zero Sunday night. Travel is not recommended during this time. If you do have to travel, plan ahead, carry extra food, water & warm clothing in the event you become stranded and carry your chains.

Thanks for the heads up NannyBear... Maybe a little snow tonight before the bigger snow storm tomorrow afternoon/evening. NWS has gone as far as issuing a Winter Storm Warning for tomorrow. Never seems to end around here this year

The 3.5 'bed tax' must be a local thing in Big Bear. Nobody's sent us a bill. The only tax we pay is the Lodging Tax to SB County.

You know they are heavy. I’ve been carrying them around for weeks now. People ask me, “What’s that?” I say Ben told me to carry chains. Can I just keep ‘em in the trunk of my chicken?

But we could see a few snow showers or flurries this evening. Roads getting icy once again as temps drop so drive safe and ALWAYS carry chains. Can't say that enough but people still don't seem to get it.
