Well I’m back from my trip to speak in Orlando, FL. I’m checking conditions, and they’re still good thanks to Mammoth Mountain’s fine grooming team, and the abundance of snowfall we received in December.
The National Weather Service forecasts a High of 52, and a Low of 26 F for Mammoth Lakes weather today. The winds are light out of the ENE at 8 with gusts to 11 mph. The next hope of new snow is forecast for Sunday with a 30% chance of snow. I hope that percentage increases as Sunday gets closer:)
The wind guage on the chair 1 tower shows all wind, including gusts, below 10 mph!!! This is a beautiful day to ski, but be sure to use strong sunscreen, preferrably with micronized zinc as recommended by one of my Cosmetic Surgeon clients.
The snow base at Mammoth Mountain is 8.5 – 14.5 feet still so it is holding together even though we have had alot of unseasonably warm weather for the last 2 weeks.
On the Mammoth Mountain McCoy station webcam, you can see that the crowds are light and you can basically ski right into chair 3 and probably all other chairs except 2 and maybe 16 and 8. So if you stay off the bottom of Mammoth Mountain after you start, you will avoid waiting in any lift lines. Remember, Mammoth Mountain has been voted the #1 lift served ski resort in North America for many years.
The only reason I am not skiing today is I have other obligations including being a guest on Kevin Thompson’s teleseminar on “Turning Your Passion into Profits”. Many good developments are happening behind the scenes for Mammoth Ski Club that I will keep close to my vest right now.
I drooled when I saw the conditions on the McCoy Station Webcam. I will definately be skiing tomorrow so I can give you an on-slope report then. Get out and ski just for the fun of it, and I’ll See You On the Slopes!
