According to the site, the Angeles National Forest resort has a solid 2- to 4-foot base of packed powder, with Chairs 1 and 2 open and the possibility of Chair 3 being added.

The venerable resort, which has no ski or snowboard rentals, is open Fridays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in winter.

The main route to Mt. Waterman via Angeles Crest Highway isn't open, still closed because of the recent rains as well as necessary repairs from the 2009 Station Fire. Instead, the resort is directing everyone to take Angeles Forest Highway from Tujunga.
