We're supposed to get 6"-8" of snow tonight in Chester. There will be much more at LNVP. It's usually close to TG that the main road is closed. It's nice to visit either way. When they close the road the visitor's center stays open. If you're able to even get a short (1-2 miles) bit up the main road on snowshoes or XC skis, you'll be amazed by the beauty, especially if it's a sunny day.

Where you planning on renting a home on Lake Almanor? Staying at a hotel or B&B in Chester? Or were you planning a day trip?

Thanks TG. Not sure on where we would stay. We have 3 small kids so we'll need to stay close to the road either way. From what you are saying, it seems like we would be better off making this trip in the summer.

I'm not sure what you mean by staying close to the road. Close to Lassen Park. In the summer there is lot of hiking. With the snow at Lassen there will be snow play. If the road is open you'll be able to see a pretty cool steam vent right from the road & play in the snow along the road or at the base of Mt Lassen. If the road is closed bring sleds, tubes, or saucers. The visitor's center has an area to learn about volcanoes that is interesting to children. There's also a short film about different related topics.

Where are you traveling from?
