RUNNING SPRINGS (CBSLA) – Several inches of fresh snow fell in the San Bernardino Mountains Monday, creating major problems for drivers.

Wrightwood and Big Bear each saw three inches of snow, while residents in Running Springs were scraping fresh powder off their cars.

Caltrans crews dropped cinders on the 15 Freeway through the Cajon Pass to create traction for icy areas.

“It’s been a humbling experience,” said one woman as she tried to chain up her car.

Meanwhile, the 5 Freeway through the Grapevine just north of Los Angeles reopened Tuesday morning after being shut down Monday due to icy conditions.
