Okay, okay ....so it's nothing like East Coast Winters, but hey, some parts of California do get some serious snow. And the newbies who don't prepare for it will be sorry. On the winter vacation travels be prepared for almost anything, especially in snowy Sierra's & Northern California.
does winter actually 'set in' for California?
The following mountain roads are partially closed or totally
