Felix, along with dozens more, spent the day having snowball fights with family and friends. "We just had a little fight earlier, and now we're having hot chocolate and then we'll have round two coming up next," said Guy Goldstein, who is visiting the top of the tram with his two daughters. "I've never seen snow before so it was pretty cool because I thought it would be softer," his daughter Riley said.

Goldstein said the best part about living in Palm Springs is having access to the outdoors. "Instead of driving a couple of hours up to Big Bear or something,12 minutes we're up the mountain in the snow," he said.
