Sometimes there is snow at Montebello Open Space Preserve on Page Mill Road. There is supposed to be a big cold storm on Saturday which may bring as much as a foot of snow to the ridge.
I could see snow on Mt. Hamilton earlier this week, but when that happens, they usually put restrictions on road use to discourage tourists.
Not sure how the distance compares, but you could try Fresno and heading beyond.
If it does snow locally, you can get probably get a taste of it near Castle Rock on hwy 35 a few miles south of the hwy 9 intersection.
I suggest Soda Springs Ski Resort off of Hiway 80. From Palo Alto, it takes 3 hours to get there.
The weekend weather forecast. Page Mill Road gets up to around 2300 feet at Montebello OSP. Castle Rock State Park is around 3100 feet.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES ARE IN EFFECT FOR AREA HILLS AND MOUNTAINS
TONIGHT INTO EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. IN THE NORTH BAY MOUNTAINS..
EAST BAY HILLS AND SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS EXPECT SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS
OF 3 TO 5 INCHES BETWEEN 2000 AND 3000 FEET...WITH 6 TO 9 INCHES FOR
ELEVATIONS OVER 3000 FEET. IN THE SANTA LUCIA MOUNTAINS SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS OF 2 TO 5 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED BETWEEN 2000 AND 3000
FEET...WITH 6 TO 8 INCHES FOR ELEVATIONS OVER 3000 FEET.
We ended up going to Castle Rock State Park Saturday morning. It was perfect! Lots of snow and it was snowing while we were there!
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. My kids (and my wife and I) had a great time!
