    I want to climb to climb San Jacinto Peak on New Years Day using the aerial tram to get to the trailhead. Anyone done this in the last few days? SNow on the trail? Ice? Crampns needed?

    Mike, I haven’t been up there lately. There has been some snow, but it’s also been quite warm. I would call the ranger station for the latest on conditions (but be aware that they tend to paint a more bleak picture to scare off the newbies).

    You can check the Long Valley webcam for snow conditions, although it will be different as you near the summit:

    The Mountain Station weather shows the forecast low hovering a few days above freezing, but again, this could change very quickly.

    Thanks. Good suggestions!! MW
