Yes, Lancaster is in L.A. County, and does occasionally get snow. The mountains south and west of there get a little bit more. If you want snow in L.A. County, check out Acton, Green Valley, Lake Hughes, and Gorman. Most of these places get a light dusting of snow annually, and occasionally a bit more. Wrightwood and Pinion Hills in San Bernardino County get a bit more, as do Lebec, Frazier Park, and Pine Mtn. Club in Kern County.

Default Snow in California+picture

YES, I live in the mountains of San Bernardino. We get snow every year. Just before Christmas this year we had a storm that brought an unusual amount of snow before winter even came. I had to dig my car out and chains where required for a week. It is incredibly beautiful.

The names of the mountain towns are as follows: Lake Arrowhead,Twin Peaks,Blue Jay,Cedar Glen, Crestline (home of Lake Gregory),Valley of Enchantment,Cedarpines Park,Green Valley Lake. All of these are only 30-40 minutes away from a big city. Lots of commuters live up here.
A website for the community is rimoftheworld.net.
The schools are great until you hit Jr. High and High School. Sex,drugs and unchecked crime have been on the rise in Jr and High School since I moved here in 2000. Much the same as schools "down the hill". I have had two children go thru the schools.
Back to the snow: I lived in sunny parts of california my whole life and I love the snow up here, not to mention the beautiful outdoors. Just be prepared for winter as many in this last storm could not get out to work for a week, and you should be prepared for a power outage. I haven't encountered more than a day of no power but according to the history of the mountain back in 1930's there was so much snow, you couldn't get off the mountain for a few months. So stock up on food, drinking water, and so on.
