Hate to make you scream at your monitor but, no, SoCal does not have snow. That is, nothing like what the rest of the world considers snow. When you see those snowy mountain tops up close and personal, it looks more like frost. It's not like being in Connecticut or Minnesota and walking knee deep through a foot of thick snow... more like frost and powder sprinkled on the ground not even an inch thick (you can still see the mud and pine needles through it and it's actually kind of gross).
It has snowed in L.A. but it is so incredibly rare that my L.A. home has only been snowed on once in my 27 years living here... and the snow we got was incredibly thin and melted in hours. A snowy environment like we got in RDR would feel very inauthentic in a SoCal game, trust me.
The mountains have snow dude... It can be done... No one mentioned snow falling on Los Angeles, just the surrounding mountains... Hell we're not even saying that we think snow will be on the TALLEST PEAK, which will be the furthermost point of the map. If snow was an inch thick there would be no Big Bear no Snow Summit or Mammoth, sure they use fake snow, but they still have a nice foundation.
