Storm Blankets Big Bear in Snow

The Big Bear area has turned into a winter wonderland after recent storms dropped a foot of snow, the mountain resorts said Friday.

Video released by Big Bear Mountain Resort showed snow blanketing ski areas at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, as well as the town of Big Bear.

For those driving up the mountain, chain restrictions may be in effect, and the resort advised checking road conditions with Caltrans.

The National Weather Service said up to 15 inches of snow fell on upper reaches of ski resorts and on Mount San Jacinto.
