Mammoth opened Broadway and Saddle Bowl on snowmaking. Most of November's 8.5 inches fell Nov. 18, allowing Face of 3, Gremlin's, St. Anton and the race courses to open Nov. 19. Mambo opened a route to chair 2 Nov. 23, but by Nov. 25 the Face of 3 and the race runs closed. Stump Alley and Cornice opened by Dec. 1, total 13% open.

Southern California had all rain November 15 and 18. The Big Bear areas opened Nov. 26 and Mt. High West Nov. 30. Any progress in the near term will be due to night time snowmaking
