TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - Snows are blanketing the slopes of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California and skiers and resorts alike are eagerly anticipating next week’s beginning of the ski season.

Machines are churning out artificial snow and plows are mixing it with the real thing Friday as Wednesday’s beginning of the season approaches.

Marcie Bradley of Northstar California Resort in Truckee says “mother nature has been super good to us” this season with dropping temperatures and increased moisture, and says the resort is delighted to see some incoming storms arriving also.

Northern California’s resorts will be operating in declining drought conditions for the first time in years, with some located in counties where the drought has been declared over altogether.
