  1. Great information. Lucky me I ran across your blog by accident (stumbleupon).
    I have book-marked it for later!

  2. Does this location have snow tubing/rent tubes? If not, where is a good place to go? Thank you!

    We’re looking for free sledding and a place to build snow forts. Would Spicer or Lake Alpine SnoParks work? Is one better than the other? Otherwise, any recommendations? We live in the San Joaquin Valley and are looking to keep the drive under 3 hours. Thanks!

    • Good Morning! Both Spicer and Lake Alpine SnoParks are good for either sledding and snow play, however, Lake Alpine SnoPark is BEST for sledding (especially for anyone over 9 or 10 years old). Lake Alpine has longer runs whereas Spicer has shorter runs which are better for little ones. A SnoPark Permit is required for all SnoParks. There are only $5/day or $25 for the entire season. Here is a link to http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=26911 .They can be purchased at Bear Valley Snowmobile in Bear Valley. Call BV Snowmobile 209-753-2323 for more info.
