The Snow Summit recommendation is a good one. It's a little more low key than Bear and generally less populated with wannabe thugs. That said, its still SoCal, so expect to see your fair share of asshats that all think they're the shit because they're rockin' the latest and greatest gear. Ignore these fools, be courteous of others around you, and you'll be a ghost.
And remember that your lift ticket works for both resorts, so if you're not feelin Summit, bounce over to Bear.
Have fun. Conditions are fanfn'tastic right now.
