*Come on, you've been there. *How much talking do I need to do? *Go to
*Big Bear and go down the backside to pick up I-15 in Barstow.

I was hoping to pick up areas where I have never skied.

I tried to ski at MH once, because all roads to BB were closed (so you
know it had to be a good day),

No, it probably meant snow/mudslides over the roads.

but the traffic was stopped on 138
right after I crossed the railroad tracks.

You've never been there? *Why not try Baldy instead, assuming there's
enough natural snow.

The best day of MH skiing I ever had was during a Santa Ana when there
were truck warnings through the Cajon Pass. *Nobody was there AND the
wind doesn't extend into Wrightwood. *Peaceful, empty, no slush, no
wind. *An actual GOOD day.

Odds are against there being another one, especially at a convenient time..

Cheers, Bev

* Some mornings it's just not worth chewing through the straps.

You're so optimistic.
