Presidents' Day Weekend, with the holiday falling on Monday Feb. 19, is a popular time for Southern California skiers and snowboarders to drive out to Big Bear or Mammoth Lakes for some winter fun. If you're a day tripper looking to do quick jaunt from Long Beach to Big Bear or Wrightwood, be warned that you'll likely face traffic and crowds so give yourself plenty of extra travel time.

Those looking for a more serene experience- at a higher price point- can make the trek up to the Eastern Sierras for a long weekend at Mammoth or June Mountain Ski Resorts. If you're not calling out sick  Friday, Feb. 16, you'll want some caffeine to keep your car on the road after work. 

The most important tip is to book your trip now. Hotel rooms, Airbnb rates and lift tickets will get more pricey or sell out as February gets closer.  For information on snow conditions visit onthesnow.com.
