Skiers, Snowboarders Stoked As Three Storm Systems Eye The Southland

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Wrightwood is getting all the right stuff.

Fresh powdery snow is making ski and snowboard conditions the best its been at the mountain resort in quite some time.

“Probably the best snow I’ve seen in four to five years,” snowboarder  Sergio Espino said.  “I’ve already been up here 10 times. Gonna be here next weekend and probably the weekend after that.”

Mountain high slayers are stoked for the upcoming storm.

“We’ve been waiting for this for like five years,” snowboarder Cody Vlash said. “The fact that it’s happening right now and we get to experience it is great.”

“We are supposed to get two to three feet tonight and then another two to three feet the next storm. Should be awesome,” skier Dan Baldwin said.

Night riders have been blasted with sideways snow and cold temps.

“I’m trying to defrost my fingers, they’re cold. It’s pretty cold, yeah I wasn’t expecting it to be this cold,” snowboarder Andy Franco said.

Visitors are reminded to take your trash home. Locals took photos of hidden trash left behind and say, that’s not cool.

“Pack out what you pack in. Plan to bring everything home that you bring up to the mountains. Don’t expect there to be trash cans,” local Chad Keel said.
