Winter arrives at Lassen
Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014 — The recent storms and transition to icy winter conditions have closed the Lassen Volcanic National Park Highway to vehicle traffic for the season as of Monday, Dec. 1. The park highway is open to the Manzanita Lake area at the north entrance and to the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center, one mile inside the southwest entrance to the park.
“A winter visit to Lassen will transport you to a snow-covered landscape just waiting to be explored,” said acting park superintendent Steve Gibbons. “We invite you to the park to snowshoe, ski, go sledding or enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by the fireplace in the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center.”
