After receiving at least two feet of snow over the past 24 hours, Mammoth Mountain officials decided to move their opening date from November 12 to this Friday, they announced this morning. It is the second earliest opening for the resort ever.

That means some L.A. snowbirds will be leaving the warmer temperatures expected this weekend for the snow. SoCal weather forecasts for the weekend call temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
