NO.. unless you have spiked tires
where could I truck my YZ to park, then just slide around a few hours and come home?
google snow reports show depth near baldy, snow summit, snow valley, and bear mountain...but I dunno if any of those places have trails
I'm plated BTW
It's not that big of a deal. Just start out via Cledgehorn on the fireroads. Dishpan will be a little tough but other than that it will be a breeze.
I've parked near the end of the pavement and by the last houses past Pioneertown and then ridden up Burns Canyon. Or you could park at Pappy and Harriets in Pioneertown.
@jonz - am in Cali
Cleghorn or into Silverwood will have snow?
Just drove back from big bear area...clear roads with Snow everywhere else in the mountain range, although it tapers out as you start coming down...May head back up with bike to pinnacles or cleghorn or Silverwood
Pioneertown - Big Bear route: Link
Going to pilot rock truck trail/Silverwood Weds after all this rain
I will be 100% noob status on my 94 YZ250 since first ride since knee surgery...Another +1 on sv650 with knobbies...So slow ride on easy roads, noobs and adv bikes welcome.
Read about a lot of windows smashed...So don't leave anything in your truck
Riding ON snow can be a little fun. Riding when it is snowing is nearly impossible. Unless you have a wiper on your visor and air/heat to stop it fogging. Also you will have 10" of snow in your crotch and on the front of your jaclet within minutes. It's only nearly impossible though...so that makes it possible right? Have you ever ski-ed when it's actually snow falling? They close the slopes for lack of visibility.....at motorcycle speeds it will be difficult to see.......hey again it's possible...post pics.
I went up to Idylwild on my BMW R1200GS followed by my friend on his BRAND NEW at the time Ducati 999 (or some other number). Snow was on the ground...he was MOST unhappy about the condition of his bike.
Riding in snow:
goofing around close to home on a light dirt bike = fun
long ways from home on a heavy expensive-to-crash street bike = stupid
took a light bike to pilot rock truck trail...rode to pinnacles and no snow...probably too late for silverwood...pioneertown may have been a better option
not big bear, but it's local and a mix of small & big bike snow riding. brings back good memories.
looking to get my fix this year...will try Pioneertown per Jonz's suggestion
may stud up a junk tire on the YZ250
not looking to ride snowy roads in traffic...any open field areas?
anyone tried frazier mountain/mt pinos? If CBS news says it's a spot to play in snow, it must be good right?
At the moment, you could probably ride through a pile of ashes
Dang, it's bad! Could use some snow up there
