Big snows come to California — finally — ahead of long holiday weekend.

California skiers and riders are facing the best conditions of the season after recent storms dumped snow from Lake Tahoe to Mammoth Lakes, frosting slopes ahead of the long Martin Luther King holiday weekend.

It was a warm storm, particularly for L.A.’s local mountain resorts, and San Bernardino Mountain operations were hoping that Monday’s rain would turn to snow on Tuesday.

Still, Mammoth Mountain might see 3 feet near the summit, forecasters said, before the system clears out starting Wednesday, giving way to sunny skies and mild temperatures by the weekend.
