Stage 6 of the race will run from Pasadena, starting at the Rose Bowl, moving westward through Flintridge and then northward through Angeles Crest Highway all the way through Angeles National Forest.

More pretrial hearings in fatal ACH crash case Marcos Costa, the truck driver in the fatal Angeles Crest Highway crash on April 1, appeared in Pasadena Superior Court Monday for a pre-trial hearing, and was ordered to return to court Sept. 30 for another pre-trial hearing. On April 1, Costa drove down Angeles Crest Highway when the big rig’s brakes failed. The truck ran through the intersection, crashing into cars — including one driven by Jorge Posca and his daughter, Angelina Posca, who were both killed — and through Flintridge Bookstore.

California Weekend by Cary Ordway While the best getaway spots in California are almost always crowded on weekends and during popular vacation times, one of the state's recreation jewels is offering a little quieter vacation experience this year. Surprisingly, Big Bear Lake, one of the state's top mountain resort areas, is seeing less-than-expected visitor traffic this year. Local lodging operators say it's due to a "Perfect Storm" of events: a continuation of the Southern California drought, bad press resulting from last year's fires and a pesky beetle that is taking advantage of the dry weather to destroy some of Big Bear's gorgeous pine trees.

The Amgen Tour of California will not return to La Cañada this year due to Station-fire-related risks to cyclists, race officials announced Wednesday. The tour, which begins May 16 in San Diego, was scheduled to traverse Angeles Crest Highway during its sixth stage. Caltrans representatives last week alerted AEG Sports officials, the coordinators of the Amgen Tour, that the possibility of rock slides in the burn area along Angeles Crest Highway pose too much of a safety risk.

The folks from Colorado or the Sierra Nevada may chuckle just a bit when you say there is good skiing near Los Angeles, but our eye-opening trip to Big Bear in January proved that, for us, it definitely was worth the trip. Wide-open cruising, sunny skies, high-speed quads, no lift lines and lots of fresh snow — could you ask for anything more? The snow, we should add, is man-made, but the operators of Big Bear Mountain Resorts are quick to point out that snow is snow, and man-made snow is, indeed, real snow.
