Everyone planning a trip to Idyllwild during this upcoming holiday week should keep an eye on the weather. We have two weather links on our web site on the Weather & Road Conditions page. The first section at the top comes from Weather Underground, which seems to be the most accurate, for Idyllwild, of the commercial weather sites. Then there’s a banner that says Weather Resources and the first one is to the NOAA (the National Weather Service) and the second link is to the James Reserve environmental camera so one can actually see how much snow there is. The NOAA link says Idyllwild but it’s really to Pine Cove, which is 1,000 feet higher than Idyllwild (I just discovered this yesterday – oops). But that’s not a bad thing as we have properties in Pine Cove and if guests want snow that’s the first place that’ll get it. If you want to check Idyllwild using NOAA just type Idyllwild, CA into the blank box below where it says Pine Cove.
By doing this you’ll notice that snow is “likely” in Pine Cove on Wednesday night but not in Idyllwild. So there may be some white fluffy stuff around to play in over the Christmas weekend.
