Ski resort operators say it is the first time in four years that they have received enough to open for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Storm clouds that clustered over Southern California mountains today brought a dusting of snow, but the chilly Pacific storm mostly skirted the region, resulting in minimal rainfall in the Los Angeles Basin and an otherwise cool, sunny day.
The storm, which came out of the north, hit in the early morning hours, resulting in 3 to 6 inches of snow in the mountain regions and along the Grapevine area of Interstate 5. Snow fell until the early afternoon, but decreased as the day warmed up.
Local ski resort operators greeted with glee the blanket of snow that fell on the mountains this morning.
Chris Riddle, director of marketing for Big Bear Mountain Resorts, which includes Bear Mountain and Snow Summit resorts, said 4 to 6 inches of snow had fallen at Big Bear.
"I expected a minor dusting at best," Riddle said. "But lo and behold, when I woke up this morning, it was snowing real hard."
