The weather is what could be described as four seasons, which is not typical for Southern California. However, because we are located at 6,000 feet above sea level and have 2 mountain ski resorts that are above 8,000 feet, we have snow in the winter and refreshing summers that typically sit in the low 70s. The snow storms are never very severe and do not last for months (usually only days or weeks) and then melt between storms. Our lake is being impacted by the drought, however, and is looking unusually low. The only concern for natural disasters would be earthquakes (the last good shake was in 1992) which are not too concerning, and wild fires, due to our proximity to national forest surrounding the valley. Wardrobe items include bathing suits, shorts and tank tops for the summer, and beanie hats, gloves and parkas for the winter.
