Slowdown in Resorts: Resort hotel development will slow in Southern California in the 1990s, says a recent report. In the 1980s, several resorts were built along Orange County's coast, and several more are planned, including an Irvine Co. resort south of Newport Beach and a Japanese hotel project in Dana Point. There are about 13,000 hotel rooms now in Southern California in 34 resorts from the desert to the coast.

The new owners of the Mt. Waterman and Kratka Ridge ski areas say they're close to completing the first phase of snow-making systems that will enable them to greatly increase their operating days. A snow-making system could be operating as early as March 11 on a portion of Kratka Ridge that will be set aside for snow play, as well as a beginner area for skiing and snowboarding, said Barry Stubblefield, president and chief executive of La Canada Flintridge-based Mt.

Breakers toss salt into the breeze as a beachcomber eyes a tide pool. A skim-boarder shoots skyward, then plunges into the foam. On this warm fall day, in a Laguna Beach cove with surf-sculpted rock arches and bougainvillea-draped bluffs, just two sunbathers share the sand with the darting seabirds. In the past, the few visitors here mostly scrambled down from Treasure Island, a bluff-top trailer park looking out to Santa Catalina Island.

This is the middle of the alleged winter season, when the local ski slopes should be packed, restaurants jammed and the local cabins and condos filled with folks from down below, strutting in their new Christmas parkas. But . . . The owner of Big Bear Sporting Goods says he is renting more fishing poles than skis, and the Boulder Bay Marina is staying open to rent boats on a lake that normally is skimmed with ice by now.

Ski resorts from Southern California to Lake Tahoe are crowing over the latest series of storms that brought much-needed snow to a dry season in which they've been playing catch-up all winter. Bear Mountain and Snow Summit in Big Bear Lake received 24 to 27 inches of snow as of Sunday afternoon. Snow-making machines were turned off as the storm blew through the mountains. (Roads are open but chains are required on Highways 38, 18 and 330 that lead to the resorts.) The storm also dumped 18 to 22 inches of powder at Mountain High in Wrightwood where the East and West resorts opened Sunday.

Participation in snow sports dropped 6% in the most recent winter season, primarily because of increased work and family obligations for snow sport enthusiasts, but also because of low levels of snow, according to a study released Friday. The number of Americans who went skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, among other snow activities - typically from Thanksgiving to early spring - dropped from 21 million to 19.8 million, according to a report by SnowSports Industries America, a nonprofit trade group for snow sports businesses.

For Larry Davis, gray skies and low-hanging clouds are reasons to smile: They mean the ski season is here. A late November storm dumped several feet of snow on high-elevation resorts in the Eastern Sierra and Lake Tahoe and dusted lower-elevation resorts in Southern California with several inches of powder. Davis, a stock trader from Santa Clarita, made it up to Mammoth Mountain for opening day Nov. 11, declaring it the best he had seen in years. "The runs at the top were open.
