WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Warm weather and dry forecasts have prompted a Southern California ski area to close and wait for more snow.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/1RzR5iZ ) that Mountain High ski area, located about 80 miles northwest of Los Angeles, temporarily closed Sunday and will not reopen until new snowfall.

Officials say new snow is expected around March 10, so the ski resort expects to be closed about a week.

Warm temperatures in the area and snow depths of as few as 6 inches have left Mountain High without anything to ski on. Other resorts in region have thicker blankets of snow in place and are expected to remain open.

Officials say it’s not unusual for Mountain High to shut down temporarily and then reopen for another run.
