    Hi there. We have done San Bernardino last Saturday and I have to tell you to ABSOLUTELY have some sort of footwear. The snow starts at about 3.5 miles and it gets worse. The powder/ice/slush made the hike difficult but absolutely worth it. We had Hillsound Traction Crampons on, which can be worn with any hiking shoes. Hiking poles are another must! We are planning to do San Jacinto in few weeks and the Hillsounds are coming with us for sure !
