Tom from the Laguna Mountain Lodge said they were anticipating the snow storm to arrive and spent all day preparing for it.

“Last night, we had a little bit of hail or popcorn snow, about 9 o’clock and on and off,” he said. “We had that today too, little thunder bursts but nothing really yet. A lot of rain this morning. There could be a lot of snow with all the rain we had. We are still waiting and anticipating, hoping it gets here.”

He said they have been receiving a lot of calls from people wanting to make reservations for the weekend, but said they are fully booked until Tuesday.

Visitors should keep in mind they will need snow chains and to pay for a $5 pass to park anywhere in the area.

On its Facebook page, the lodge reminded visitors to respect the area by not littering and not trespassing.
