Any good pieces of empty land for snow drifting in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA?

Hey guys, about 3 years ago, right when I got my KK, I found this wide-open piece of flat empty land near LA in Victorville and had an absolute blast drifting in the snow. Was wondering if anyone has come across any piece of empty and clear flat land where it snows near Northern California where I could drive up and do the same thing.

Here's a video I took of the action. I don't live near LA now and relocated to the SF Bay Area so really want to find some place around here to do this. Even if it's a few hours away, I'm willing to drive.

If you know of a place, could you be so kind as to post the GPS coordinates?

The problem is going to be finding "flat" land that's covered in snow.

Even finding open land is going to hard too. Most everything is under seasonal closure.

I used the parking lot at Spicer reservoir a couple years ago in my Rodeo. It was pretty cool. Head up HWY 4 until you get past Dorrington and look for snow. If you hit Lake Alpine, you've gone too high.

Lemme know what you find up there I was planning a snow run/towed snowboarding expedition on the forest roads up there again. It's been pretty dry in the valley but we are hoping for a good flurry tomorrow evening in the sierras. I'm available to tag along next weekend.
