At the Top of the Mountain
At the top of the mountain in Mighty 190 Country, Brewer's Ponderosa Lodge welcomes you!
The community of Ponderosa is just beyond the Quaking Aspen Campground - at the campground the roadway will officially change from Highway 190 to Tulare County's Western Divide Highway.
Although the Western Divide Highway past Ponderosa is closed in the winter, Brewer's Ponderosa Lodge is open year-round and accessible in all except the most extreme winter weather while they wait for the snowplow. Chains are sometimes required in the winter, however, so be prepared.
Brewer's Ponderosa Lodge offers hospitality in any season. In the spring, summer, and fall you'll find and accommodating restaurant, bar, general store and rooms for rent; in the winter, after snowfall, you can usually count on the Ponderosa area as a great place for snowplay and cross country skiing and the gear you need is available for sale or rent at Brewer's Ponderosa Lodge.
And don't forget the famous Brewer's Mountain Style Chili Cook-off held each year on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.
