I have never really thought about it before and am wondering if there is an on-line source for the info? I guess you could try calling the local Ranger office and ask them. They could probably give you more updated info as I remember them having a report of the forest roads conditions that was done at least twice a week.

On the other side of the valley last weekend we started running into patches at 4,200 feet on the North side of the mtn and solid snow by 4,700 feet

Hwy 4

snow level is at Arnold still. Was up there over the weekend and there is still 1-2' on the forest road out of White Pines. Very wet and melting quick.

An online source would be cool. Sometimes, I plan my trips at night, when the rangers are closed. Other times, I've called ranger stations and had the phone ring forever, or go to voicemail every time. Hit and miss.

There are a lot of nice areas up in those parts, and they happen to be my very favorite in CA.

Silver Lake, Strawberry, and Bear Valley all have their gems. The bug is biting and I'm itching to go.

Come on snow - MELT. Come on rangers - open the gates!

Not really live snow level info, but it gives you current weather along with webcam pix:

This is a cool webcam that is located at the video rental store/realestate office which is the last building on the left heading up the mountain in Arnold:

I posted this a few weeks ago but it kind of fits the question about snow levels in different areas. This site shows weather/snow/temps/etc at various weather sites. I would imagine there are others if you look hard enough.

Though it dosn't give information on what elevation you might find snow it's still a good indicator of whats out there.
