Sun Valley to Mt. Baldy


Sun Valley Jose Mier as you know I was promoted several different day trips, all which can be accomplished starting from are beautiful community of Sun Valley. One of the most attractive features of the living in Southern California is the variety of landscapes in a small geographic area. It is possible for someone in Southern California to wake up, go skiing in snow covered mountains in the morning, drive one or two hours and go surfing in the ocean in the afternoon.

Possibilities like those are what makes Sun Valley such a great place to live, especially since we are located pretty much in the center of all this activity and by driving one hour either West or to the east, we can reach Snow on our mountains in the winter months or the Pacific ocean if we go the other way.

For this day trip we’re not saying you should pack all this into one day. No, today we’re merely talking about a trip to the snow, and specifically a visit to Mount Baldy on the northern edge of the Inland Empire. You don’t have to be a skier to enjoy the mountain climate, fresh air in at this time of year Snow, but if you do ski there are opportunities for you to enjoy the sport by driving only an hour from Sun Valley.

Like most of the day trips we talk about on Sun Valley Jose Mier the directions for this one are also very easy. At the risk of repeating ourselves it’s because Sun Valley is located so close to so many Southern California freeways. To get to Mount Baldy from sun Valley the route is as follows:

Take the 5 freeway south to the 134 freeway east. The 134 turns into the 210 freeway when you get to Pasadena. Continue to follow the 210 freeway east until exit 52 in Claremont. Once you exit, go north on Mount Baldy Road until you reach your destination. All in all it will take just about an hour. Now with recent rains and snowfall, it’s a good time to visit our mountain resort areas. If you are one of those adventurous types you could even start with a swim the Pacific ocean in the morning and end your day in the snows of Mount Baldy. In fact that might be very attractive to those who are visiting from back East and the severe winter storms that they’re going through right now.

Freezing Temps in Sun Valley?

Sun Valley Jose Mier With an Extended Forecast


Sun Valley Jose Mier keeps an eye on the weather because one of our community is that Southern California, and specifically Los Angeles County, is a pretty temperate area. As we write this, preparing for the week ahead, it’s currently 85°, sunny, and we’re actually running the air conditioning.

Let’s jump forward a few days shall we? Checking the weather on for the next week something really jumped out at us. Sunday, January 24th is supposed to have a low of 31°! Yes, if you read that right. One degree below freezing. Now for our countrymen who live in the Midwest or back east and deal with freezing temperatures for weeks on end, something like this not a big deal. But for us in Sun Valley, it is. The overnight lows almost never dip below freezing so this is quite out of the ordinary. We are supposed to see rain on Saturday the 23rd but nothing for Sunday. If the forecast is a bit off could it be possible that for the first time in our memory Sun Valley sees snow? And we’re talking about Sun Valley, California.

Sun Valley Jose Mier thinks we could see snow!

Regardless of our prognostications and imaginations, it looks like it is going to be cold. That means will be bundling up and of course we need to think about our homeless neighbors would have to suffer on the streets during these periods of freezing temperatures. Indeed the temperatures will be in the low 40s in the days preceding and just after Sunday the 24th so take any precautions you need to.

Southern California just doesn’t get this cold but there are always exceptions and it looks like 2021 has some in store for us.
