In a normal year in late March, there will be snow on many miles of the trail at the higher elevations in the San Bernardino Mountains.  If there’s been a recent dump, it can be unconsolidated such that you’d want snow shoes.

Years have often been abnormal lately.

Check with the Big Bear rangers just before you leave, but be prepared for the possibility of winter conditions.

I will be going thru mile 208 around March 25th.  What are the collective thoughts on snow thru the San Gorgornio Wilderness and the North side of Big  Bear?  I see the weather averages can be cold into the mid to high 20*s. But does this part of the trail typically hold challenging snow/ice?  Of course I?ll see it coming, just thinking about shipping Kathoolas ahead to Wrightwood?  Not concerned (at this point anyway) about Mt Laguna or San Jacinto.
