Mountain High, which has been closed since Nov. 27, is hoping to reopen this weekend.
"The forecast is for a cold and powerful storm to hit Southern California,” said spokeswoman Kim Herman. “With temperatures in the 20s, we should be able to make tons of snow on top of the six to 10 inches of natural snow that should be falling.”
She said the Wrightwood resort, which has the closest skiing and snowboarding to Los Angeles, could reopen as early as Friday.
Ben Smith, Mountain High’s general manager, said the resort has been waiting for a change in the weather.
“With fresh snow and the best snow-making conditions of the season Mountain High will be open just in time for the holidays,” he said.
