Video: Snow is falling in Big Bear

The local mountains could see as much as 3 feet of snow(!) this week as a series of El Nino storms blasts through Southern California.

And, as of Tuesday, the snowfall has begun – and this storm is dumping lots of the white stuff:

With storms possible all the way through Friday, this weekend should see some epic conditions on the slopes – well, as long as the roads are plowed enough for you to get to them.
