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 Flintridge this year due to Station-fire-related risks to cyclists, race officials announced this week. The tour, which begins May 16 in San Diego, was scheduled to traverse Angeles Crest Highway during its sixth stage. Representatives for the California Department of Transportation 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 posed too much of a safety risk.

Dick Kun doesn't give up easily. Kun, who operates the Snow Summit ski resort at Big Bear Lake, made his first overture to acquire Bear Mountain, located about two miles away, in 1980. Nothing came of it. He continued to carry the torch, however, and almost got the object of his affection to the altar two years ago. The parties agreed to the marriage but there was this little problem with the dowry. Snow Summit couldn't quite arrange the financing and the romance cooled again.

Art Bentley Nothing in the mountains is as enchanting as the first snowfall. Fat flakes drift in steady sibilance from a sky the color of lead to ground rapidly whitening. When the depth of the coating is sufficient, the simple mountain folk break out the sleds and the runners. The romantic scene cries out for a Grandma Moses to immortalize it on canvas. The romance may have been lacking Nov. 12 in the local hills but the simple mountain folk on their sleds and runners, known more familiarly as snowboards and skis, could not have cared less.

Gary Moskowitz SOUTHWEST GLENDALE -- It's been a few years since Julian Jackson had a stroke halfway through a cup of coffee here at Glendale's Moonlight Rollerway Skating Rink. Since his initial recovery, 66-year-old Jackson has continued to drive up from Compton every week for "Old Timers Night" at the rink to see his friends and roller-skate. Jackson's friends show up every Tuesday night, a lot of them a half-hour early, waiting to get in their turns and spins at Glendale's Moonlight Rollerway Skating Rink.

More expected from summer storms A series of freak storms are expected to continue their path through the Southland into Saturday, keeping temperatures unseasonably low. Weather conditions throughout Los Angeles County have been unpredictable and unusual for this time of year, officials said. As of Thursday, the storms were blamed for at least two deaths ? one involving a falling tree limb in Big Bear Lake, the other a lightning strike in Fontana ? and a smattering of wildfires across the mountains and eastern portion of the county.
