Temperatures warmed up overnight in the Wrightwood area where Mountain High Ski Resort hoped to open doors today. Snow making last night was "fairly marginal" as temperatures stayed above 34 degrees. Freezing or below temperatures are generally need to make snow.

"It looks like it's going to warm up the next couple of days. So it won't be this weekend," a spokesperson told the Press-Enterprise. "If we'd had temps in the teens, we could have opened ... in one night."

Alright, so maybe next week, then.
