Close to the Pacific means that the Californian resorts get plenty of moisture and when that is cold they get plenty of snow. However when it is warm they get plenty of rain.

California certainly isn't know for perfect dry powder (although it can get it and get LOTS of it) but it is known for lots of snow.

It tends to be either blue sky or snowing with not a lot of variation and when it snows it can snow a lot. Unfortunately the moisture content can mean it lives up to its nick name of "Sierra Cement" at times and powder days can often be followed by warmer weather making the snow sticky before re-freezing.

Californian snow has a lot going for it (just ask Glen Plake who grew up at South Lake Tahoe) and mostly that is volume of snow and regular blue sky days.
