(AP) - A spring snow dump has extended the season at two of Southern California's most popular ski mountains.

Bear Mountain and Snow Summit said Wednesday that they will remain open through at least April 17. The twin ski destinations at Big Bear Lake had planned to close April 10.

The resorts in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles received about 10 inches of snow over about 48 hours starting Monday.

It wasn't enough to prompt a reopening at Mountain High resort in the San Gabriel Mountains, which has been closed since Feb. 28.

To the north, Mammoth Mountain plans to stay open through Memorial Day and possibly longer, depending on conditions. The ski area in the southern Sierra Nevada has received 342 inches of snow at the main lodge so far this season.
