So, what’s the downside to Castaic? We don’t really think there is a downside, but if there was one we’d have to say it’s the very occasional snow that occurs to the North of Castaic during the winter. This is kind of a local joke because we rarely get any snow in these parts! When there’s heavy snow up the grapevine to the north, Interstate 5 will shut down, right at Castaic. No huge problem, but during those rare shut down periods there can be traffic problems when trying to access Interstate 5.
