Southern California resorts welcome a return to winter over Presidents' Day weekend as cold and wet weather brings snow to Mammoth Mountain, Snow Summit, Bear Mountain and Mountain High.

Mammoth Mountain
If Mammoth Lakes weather expert Howard Sheckter’s predictions hold true, Mammoth Mountain could be looking at over five feet of snow beginning tomorrow and continuing through President’s Day weekend. Sheckter’s website brings welcome news to skiers and snowboarders in Mammoth, who haven’t seen new snow since January.

“Champagne Powder Alert…. Weather Change To Bring Greatest Snow On Earth To Mammoth Mt,” reads Sheckter’s latest weather discussion. “Champagne powder” means light, fluffy and cold; it’s the snow that powder hounds dream about.

Snow Summit and Bear Mountain
The National Weather Service concurs with Sheckter’s predictions for a return of winter weather to Southern California. Big Bear resorts Snow Summit and Bear Mountain should see cooling temperatures today with a possible 4-8 inches of snow expected on Wednesday night. The next storm moves in over the weekend, dropping 6-12 inches of snow at resort levels.

Mountain High
In Wrightwood, Mountain High expects 3-5 inches of snow on Wednesday. A stronger storm moves into the area Friday night with 8-14 inches of snow expected through Saturday.
