I did not get an accurate snow depth. I dig dig a snow pit however to check out some of the underlying layers but did not do any actual testing and did not dig to the ground. The pit was dug at the base of the 2nd chute. There was about 4 feet of new snow on top of an ice crust layer from this storm, you can see the ice layer in the photo. When I was there a month ago doing Jepson, there was about 3-4 feet of snow down to a hard ice layer with some depth hoar to the ground, probably 12" or so. So with whatever snow fell in-between, there is about 8 feet of snow to add to that. At Dry lake where we camped, we stuck a probe to the ground and dot about 2 meters.

Heres a photo of the hasty put I was digging

"The fire progressed past Forsee Creek and continues to burn northeast towards San Bernardino Peak as the upcanyon winds align with topography."

Is Forsee Creek north of 38?

Channel 5 just announced the sad death of our firefighter that had disappeared last night while battling the beast fir us. A few hours later he or she was found dead. Very upsetting!! They have not announced the name yet. RIP hero!!

The main gist from that update:

“Fire burned with increased intensity along Hwy 38 near the Pinezanita area. Spotting occurred within the indirect fire line and did not cross Hwy 38. The spots fires were quickly extinguished by the ground resources working in the area. Structure protection continues from Pinezanita to Jenks Lake by increasing defensible space, hose line placement and fire line construction. The road has been widened to create a better fire break and assist fire resources with containing the fire south of Hwy 38.

The fire progressed past Forsee Creek and continues to burn northeast towards San Bernardino Peak as the upcanyon winds align with topography.

There are no active spot fires that have crossed Hwy 38.”

“There is NO evacuation directive for Big Bear residents AT THIS TIME.”

, might as well be handing out road flares at the bottom of the hill. As for the 'Safe and Sane' 'Warning', it is considered to be 'Safe' when a 'Sane' person follows the use specifications to the 'T'. Anything other than that is 'voiding' the warnings so no responsibiity. Sort of like paint that is guaranteed until you actually paint it on an outside wall up here.

thx SilentSky.

in regards to maps, I suppose spots are not shown, but maybe established spots dictate the placement of the fire line. the main thing: the line is still south of the 38. (Awesome!)

I'm not actually defending anyone. I'm just appalled that these things are allowed to be marketed and sold as a bit of "harmless fun". My true ire is for the fireworks stands at 40th and Waterman because technically they're legal in the city of SB but obviously aimed at travelers about to head up the mountain.
