Default Place to plink in El Dorado forest in winter?

I was thinking of driving up to El dorado forest to shoot next week, but my usual spot near Ice House is probably closed due to snow conditions. Any suggestions for a nearby area that is safely away from civilization that might be clear of snow?

Went out iron mountain (past sly park lake). Just past the info center is a road to the right (benneli maybe?). Drove til we found a spot. Lots of landing and people shooting.

Take HWY 50 exit sly park rd. Turn right head down sly park until you pass the lake about a mile past the lake entrance is mormon emmigrant/iron mountain rd on the left, drive about 6-7 minutes until you see a information station on the right and take the immediate next right which is benneti rd. Drive down until you find a spot. I reccomend driving about 1.5 miles until you see a bunch of wide open spots. i went today no 4wd necessary, might get snow from the storm coming the next few days but 4wd would be fine.

Real busy on the weekends, nobody usually weekdays

Take a box or trash bag with you! Pack it in - Pack it out!

If we take out more than what we bring, it goes a looooong way to keeping area's open.
