Snow Trails in SoCal

I'm looking to do some runs in the snow this year and am looking for input from anyone who may know of good ones to hit up. Obviously I would prefer something a bit closer to the SD area but understand that is more wishful thinking than anything!

Im here in Temecula and Mt. Palomar is always in view. If its cold enough when its raining down here, Palomar will get a good coating of snow. The 2 trails that come to mind there on Palomar is Palomar Divide Rd. and Nate Harrison Grade. I've ran both trails, they're not challenging at all (I like Palomar Divide), but if covered in snow, those would be fun trails up the mountain. I was considering checking it out when I see snow up there too. Again though, it only will snow up there if it gets cold enough. Other than that, Big Bear would be the best bet, lots of trails up there, I just dont know if theres closures when it snows.

Palomar isn't bad, but like you said, they aren't really challenging. A couple of people from JF did the run in the snow last year and had a decent time. Nice and quick.

I'm guessing I'm going to be driving a few hours north to find the good stuff.

I was in Anza Borrego this weekend. Ran Rodriguez Canyon & Oriflamme Canyon this morning. It’s a fairly easy, but very scenic loop that could have some snow in another couple months.
