Hey Good People!! More "Pure Mtn Fun" on the Way to Bear Valley!! ~ Mattly Trent

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/25/2020 01:24 PM
Bear Valley, CA...Hey Good People! Good Morning Good People! A mostly sunny day is ahead with temps reaching the mid to upper 40’s today and a lite ENE wind up to 6mph. Things change later this evening as the Pacific front move in and brings possible snowfall overnight in the 1-2″ range. Sunday, snowfall will continue as we could see another 2-6″ fall during the day before the system heads East and leaves mostly sunny conditions for the week ahead. The approaching system begins as a warm storm with snow levels above 8,000 feet Saturday evening when the storm moves in. Snow levels will slowly fall overnight to around 6,000 to 6,500 feet by early Sunday, then they will fall slightly more Sunday morning to 5,500 to 6,000 feet after the front moves through. Because of the higher snow levels during the time of heaviest precipitation, snow amounts are not likely to be very high and snow accumulation is not expected until late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. Around 6 to 8 inches for elevations above 7,000′ south of Highway 50 could be seen. Conditions are fantastic around the resort and it’s a great time to get your riding game on so don’t forget to check out our Lifts and Trails page Daily for projected operations. Check out our “Pure Mtn Fun” as we have lots of it going on!

Hey Good People!! Your "Pure Mtn Fun" Awaits in Bear Valley ~ Mattly Trent

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/24/2020 12:34 PM
Bear Valley, CA...Hey Good People! With the short wave trough making it’s exit this morning and it will leave in it’s wake the possibility of scattered snow showers into the mid- morning hours. A trace of snow is all that is expected with this disturbance in the force. Upper level ridging will strengthen today and bring a chance of partly sunny skies later today and early Saturday morning. Late Saturday night a decent Pacific front arrives and could give way to snowfall in the 2-8″ range. Models for that cycle are struggling to align currently so the numbers for that are still up in the air(literally). Snowfall elevations with Saturday nights event could start at 6-6500′ then drop down to 4500-5000′ come Sunday morning as cooler air aloft is injected into the area. Strong ridging returns at the beginning of next week so a little clearing and days of sunshine are in order. Conditions are fantastic around the resort and it’s a great time to get your riding game on so don’t forget to check out our Lifts and Trails page Daily for projected operations. Check out our “Pure Mtn Fun” as we have lots of it going on!

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/23/2020 05:13 PM
Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement today on the loss of American firefighters who were the crew on one of California’s critical firefighting aircraft, while fighting wildfires in Australia: “Jennifer and I are heartbroken to learn of the air tanker crash in Australia that claimed the lives of three heroic American firefighters. We extend our sincere condolences to the families of the crew, their friends and loved ones, and our own CAL FIRE family who worked, fought fires, and trained with the crew of Tanker 134. This tragic accident reminds us all of the too-high cost of the scourge of wildfires, as well as the sacrifice of first responders from around the world. California and Australia, already united by the deadly threat of wildfires, now grieve this tragic loss together.”

Sender's Market's Grocery Ad & Grocery Specials Through January 28th

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/23/2020 07:31 AM
Mountain Ranch, CA...In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we're still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you've got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered.

U.S. Sends Additional Crews to Support Australian Bushfire Response

Boise, Idaho - As wildfires continue to burn in Australia, the United States is sending additional U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) wildfire personnel to assist with ongoing bushfire suppression efforts in Australia. Three 10-person Incident Management Teams and a group consisting of air support personnel have arrived in Australia in recent days.


A BLM Fire crew and 11 single resource overhead personnel get ready to fly to Australia from Los Angeles. These firefighters were so grateful to be given the opportunity to go to Australia and help with their wildfires. Several of them had worked with the Australians when they were mobilized to the United States to help us and were eager to repay the favor.
