After being open just two weekends, Mt. Waterman is closed until there is more snow. Mountain High East will be open this weekend but I would surprised if it opens again without new snow.

The SoCal mountains got 2 inches in January and it was close to 50F most days this week with no snowmaking at night mentioned on any websites.

The cold weather has allowed snowmaking to resume in the SoCal mountains. However it is all being used to refresh existing open trails, not to reopen any that closed during the warm last half of January. Mountain High's website boasts of reconditioning several trails at West with snowmaking, but open trail count there has declined from 74% last week to 58% now. East is not mentioned so it's safe to say it's done for the season without substantial new natural snow. Bear Mt. trail count has declined from 76% last week to 65% now. Snow Summit remains at 88%. SoCal skiing is now fully in the snowmaking/grooming dependent mode it has been for most of the past decade.
