Rich, I've heard that Gorman/Hungry Valley was also closed due to fire hazard.
I called Gorman yesterday. they said they are not planning any closures. Just no open fires or non-gas barbeque's. Other then that, all trails open!

And as far as all that green terrain, you get it for a price! It's so green because it snows all winter, is hot and muggy in the summer, and the land was never developed because the mosquitos are bigger that crows! Thanks, but I'll stay here in Cali where the ocean is 10 minutes, the desert 2 hours and the same for the mountains. Well, that is assuming the traffic is moving...

I live on the Oregon coast. Yes we get our share of rain but it almost never gets cold enough to snow. Rarely do we see mosquitos.
I have the ocean less than 3 minutes away. Over 1,000 miles of single track that they are always adding new trails to (unlike california...our green stickers actually go to trails and equipment to maintain them). We have the desert only 2 hours away, snow sking about two hours.
Let's just say you can stay in Cali if you want but there are many, many better choices to live and raise a family if you happen to have children.
Best of luck.
