The skies were blue again today, and the roads were clear. There was a thick fog over Hwy 395 near Lake Crowley, but once you got to the airport, it was clear from there on. The crowds were lighter than expected, and we got on 4th chair at chair 2 at opening. The corduroy was excellent. Super easy to get an edge and carve. We skied Stump Alley, Mambo to Patrolamn’s, and then Mambo to Gus’s Pasture. Then we skied Broadway and Saddle Bowl to Powder Bowl.
Then we took chair 10 to the sunny side of the mountain where we took Back for More a few time riding chair 25. We checked out the snow on chair 8 and skied Hully Gully. My daughter had a headache, so I let her read and take a nap in the car while I hit the top. I skied Corndrop (between Cornice and Dropout), and it was choppy, but really good. I did 4 laps on Corndrop, then skied Cornice and St. Anton, Coming thru and Secret Spot off chair 12.
You could ski into any chair today with the light Holiday crowd.
The Mammoth Lakes weather was beautiful all day, and the weather at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area was sunny and comparitively warm with light winds. The snow was really good soft groomed. Everyone I spoke to today was having a wonderful time. If you can, come on up to Mammoth Mountain. The next storm is supposed to hit tomorrow with possibly a foot of new snow on the mountain.
