Winter blew into the Southland mountains last weekend--and then blew right out again, unfortunately. A cold, dry Santa Ana zephyr enabled Snow Summit and Bear Mountain to begin making snow Sunday, but by Tuesday both Big Bear Lake ski areas had to silence their guns as the weather warmed.

After picking up seaside golf courses, Hollywood studios and New York skyscrapers, the Japanese have added ski resorts to their shopping list of American investments. Not long ago they arrived on the California slopes, agreeing to buy Heavenly Valley, one of the state's choice ski areas. It is nestled amid the casinos and hotels of South Lake Tahoe. Sapporo-based Kamori Kanko Co. grabbed the 20-square-mile resort, which is valued between $80 million and $100 million.
