Information on Current Efforts Regarding Snowstorms in San Bernardino Mountains

DATE/TIME: February 27, 2023/11:30 a.m.

INCIDENT: Snowstorm in San Bernardino Mountains

LOCATION: Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, Crestline Areas 

SUMMARY: The San Bernardino Mountains received several feet of snow over the last few days, impacting the day-to-day operations throughout the mountain communities. Cal-Trans and the San Bernardino County Roads Department have been working day and night to create single-lane pathways along the major roadways, enabling first responders to have access to those in need. However, due to the volume of snow remaining on the roadways additional work is needed before they will be safe for regular traffic. The San Bernardino County Fire Department is utilizing tracked vehicles to  access patients in medical need. Some areas have experienced power outages and Southern California Edison is working tirelessly to restore power for these customers. Weather reports indicate the possibility of several more feet of additional snow over the next few days.

At this time, we are asking non-residents and residents not currently on the mountain to avoid the area and allow road crews, first responders, and resupply efforts priority access to the limited number of roads that have been cleared. Gas stations and grocery stores have reached critically low levels and cannot support any additional consumers at this time. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department is working with local agencies to create a warming center for those on the mountain in need of additional resources. We will continue to monitor road and infrastructure conditions in conjunction with Cal-Trans, County Roads, and California Highway Patrol. 

Additionally, the Sheriff’s Department and other first responders have had to divert resources from our current efforts to assist with several search and rescue calls for individuals engaged in non-essential travel activities across our mountain region. We ask that people respect the travel restrictions and road closures as we work with our partners to open access.
