Mammoth Mountain Snow Report Dec. 27, 2010

This is the daily snow report prepared especially for Mammoth Ski Club members. Today was a Chamber of Commerce day at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort. It was beautiful with sunshine at dawn, and literally no wind. We got on chair 2 at opening, and they opened the entire mountain quickly. The Wall looked filled in from chair 2, and I did 3 laps down the Wall and the Glades. Here’s a photo of how it looked:

The air temperature was about 16 F at 8:30am, so I wore a face mask for the first few hours. We skied chairs 1 and 2, then headed for chair 3 where we got this great view of the top of chair 23:

It's amazing how all the snow we got held to these mountains.Hemlock ridge from chair 14 The snow was excellent everywhere. There were still fresh powder runs all over the mountain, and groomers galore. I really have to give Mammoth Mountain credit for handling all the snow and making the ski visitor's experience as good as it can be. We never waited in a lift line today. And that during the busiest week of the ski season. So Mammoth Mountain, their management and staff all deserve credit for a job well done!We took chair 14 again, and climbed to Scotty's. Then we traversed to get to chair 10 to take us over to the sunny side for a few laps. Back for More was excellent, and chair 25 was the secret spot after 11:am with absolutely no line and tons of fun terrain. Here's a shot of Dragon's back from that side of the mountain.Here's Dragon's back from chair 25

The weather is excellent for skiing at Mammoth Mountain, and the snow is the best in the world, in my opinion. This is a great week to ski if you can avoid the crowds at the choke points like chairs 2, 10, 8 and 16. See You On the Slopes!
