Many skiers and snowboarders were charmed throughout the end of the week as new powder covered the mountains after an amazing winter storm moved its way through Southern California during the week.
It’s extraordinary information for winter sports fans, and for nearby organizations in mountain networks like Wrightwood whose economy has been hit hard by the pandemic.
Yet, the new pow lines were not all that effectively accessible by numerous who couldn’t hold back to shred the gnar.
Angelina Khaourdajian, an inhabitant of Glendale, said she and her companions were trapped in rush hour gridlock for five hours attempting to get to the Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood.
“I was so energized. I’ve been in my snow gear since the morning,” Khaourdajian said. “Be that as it may, they shut down the streets 0.4 miles before we arrived. So we needed to pivot and now we’re in two additional long stretches of traffic.”
While the slants are open at Mountain High, the traffic is a bad dream. Cold, tight streets were only a portion of the risks.
A few people were so tired of the traffic that they pulled over and strolled the last mile or so to the base of the mountain.
Roy Whitney, an Oak Hills inhabitant, said it didn’t make a difference once he was on the mountain.
“It was acceptable! We haven’t seen powder the entire year,” Whitney said. “Truly we saw a tad to start with however they’ve been blowing snow from that point forward.”
More snow is relied upon to hit Southern California Tuesday into Wednesday. That is uplifting news for the slants, which will be open.
