Ski slopes packed after winter storm

WRIGHTWOOD People arrived early at Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood, eager to enjoy the four inches of fresh snow that blanketed the area during Friday's storm. By mid-morning it looked like rush hour on the slopes.

"It's awesome," said snowboarder Blake Adham. "Mountain High is awesome all the time. But since it just dumped yesterday it can't get much better than this."

For resort operators in Southern California it's a great way to kick off the long President's Day holiday weekend and even more snow is expected Sunday night.

"I came up last weekend and it was gorgeous, so we came up again today and it's amazing," said Marissa Mathews.

For the beginning skiers and snowboarders the good thing about all the powder is that it makes for a soft landing. MORE LOCAL HEADLINES FROM INLAND EMPIRE
