    SoCal mags - San Gorgonio Peak

    So I am headed to the Whale's Vagina (San Diego) in late December to visit the GF's fam and I am trying to figure out how to make some turns while I am there. I likely can't make the trip to Mammoth or anywhere further.

    Has anyone skied Gorgonio and like to give me some info on those northern slide paths? I know all of this is highly dependent on snow and avalanche (?) danger, but a man can dream.

    Thanks in advance.

    They think I do not know a buttload of crap about the Gospel, but I do.

    Don't twist your ankle on the talus, lol. La Nina year.

    Check out Onion Valley for snow and an easier approach, without having to drive all the way to Mammoth.

    Looking unlikely to have any snow, but double check before start of trip. Plenty of other things to do outdoors in San Diego.

    Don't even think about it Gape.

    Your city boy ass would get lost and eaten by a mountain lion.

    The bunny slopes of Big Bear are more than you can handle but go there instead anyway.

    It dry right now and will be when you get here
    Itís a LOOOOONG slog in.
    Itís closer to go to Onion Valley or even the Mammoth area when you figure the drive time verses hike time to snow
    Sorry
    Maybe try surfing or paddle boarding.
