Finally, a little powder on top of Mount San Jacinto and surrounding mountains.
“Only a dusting so far in Long Valley,” Lena Smith, spokeswoman for the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, wrote in an email this morning.
It’s been a nearly snow-less winter for the mountain, contributing to decreased ridership on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and visitation to the Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness Area and the miles of trails in the high-altitude back-country.
However, a look at the live cam of Long Valley shows an inch or two of snow. It’s not much, but intensely welcome.
