Rain falls in the Valley, snow in Sierras
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A string of storms have dropped the first measurable amount of rain in the Valley for the first time in months.
The latest storm moved into the Valley Monday morning, bringing more rain to the Valley and snow to the mountains.
The snow piled up on China Peak, allowing staff to open up another run. However, the resort may still need to run snow making machines.
The resort's owner hope fresh snow will allow them to stop running the machines.
"It didn't change anything yet, but another storm like that... We got about 9-16 inches, if we get another storm like that we'll be able to open more terrain," Tim Cohee said.
So far this year, China Peak has spent $300 thousand on man-made snow.
