Winter resorts open, snowmaking adds to early season snowfall
BIG BEAR – (INT) – Resorts in the San Bernardino Mountains are taking advantage of cold nights and an early season snowfall to open the winter season.
Snow Valley opened a day after Mountain High at Wrightwood began downhill action.
At Big Bear, weatherman Ben Brissey says 12 inches of snow has already fallen this month compared to a season average of 62 inches. Two feet was measured at higher elevations. Low temperatures have bottomed out at just 1.4 degrees above zero earlier this month and another cold Santa Ana wind should bring improved snowmaking conditions in the coming nights, Brissey predicted.
The lockdown that followed the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic prematurely ended the last season in March.
