Biggest rain / snow event in 10 years
California will surpass "normal rainfall this week"
Dams should fill by 15 JAN ... with lots of flooding , rock slides
AND OF COURSE LOTS OF SNOW ABOVE 7000 feet
Bring it on. It's about time. I just hope everything doesn't wash away in all of the fire areas and starved vegetation areas.
You know 2-3 weekends ago it rained 7 plus inches in 8 hours to 10000 feet. Washed the 2 feet base we had away and the Kern filled to the brim.
I think the temps will allow snow to stay above 7000 feet
I'm more concerned about getting the SHERMAN road plowing contract approved by the SAN BERNANDINO NFS
Any word on grooming for Sherman this year? Is the yellow legged frog fiasco over with?
Bob Frenes NFS indicated everything was in order for this season for grooming. I'll try to call him and get an update for the meeting on Wednesday.
I know we can groom BUT did the "new 2 yr" contract get approved to maintain/plow Sherman Pass Road?
Heading should be 10 Jan not 10DEC
I updated that for you Don.

Hello i'm new to the club but have been riding with the guys at Sugarloaf for a while now I was wondering what is the best way to Sherman pass 395 to Kennedy Meadow ?
Hey Bill,best way to Sherman is 178 past Kernvill if possible, if you come in from 395 it's a long way to the peak.I'm gonadotropin try to go this Saturday, contact me if you're going.
