Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow…
In addition to the heavy rainfall totals we’re continuing to experience this week (we could see up to an inch of rain in the L.A. basin and one to two inches in the mountains and foothills), National Weather Service meteorologist John Dumas told the LA Weekly that this week’s new storm system could push the local snow totals to more than half a foot.
As the storm lowers temperatures throughout the area on Wednesday the snow levels will descend from 7,500 feet as of Monday night to 5,000 feet Wednesday morning, Dumas said.
Sooooo… in a nutshell, if you’re addicted to fresh powder (the kind that you find at ski resorts that is) then this is excellent news for the winter season. Both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain have been open since Thanksgiving week and now the Mountain High is open, reporting they have between 12 to 18 inches of base now at their resort.
Enjoy the slopes!
