Mammoth Ski Club had more visitors to the website and more new members yesterday that any day previously. The Spring skiing at Mammoth is going to be awesome for months and months. Here’s a photo I shot at the bottom of Stump Alley yesterday. The snow wall is as high as I have ever seen it.
Check out yesterday’s post to see my photo of the top Of Mammoth when the clouds broke after the last storm which dumped 5-8 feet of new snow.
This next set of storms is forecast to dump 3-4 more feet of snow by Sunday. The National Weather Service has a Winter Storm Warning for today, so travel will be tricky. There is a 100% chance of snow today, a 100% chance Thursday, 60% chance Friday and Saturday and a chance of snow on Sunday.
The winds are down out of the N at 6 with gusts to 20 for Mammoth Lakes weather. The tower 9 chair 1 wind gauge show steady winds of 10 with gusts to 21 mph. Local radar shows moisture represented in greens, yellows and some orange in our area.
Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort reports 5″ of new snow in the last 24 hours over their copious 15-22 foot snow base. The snow base at the top of the mountain is 30-40 feet in the troughs of the chutes. There are many areas you can ski that are normally just rocks opening up many new lines to be had in the trees and where cliffs once were.
Skiing will continue to be epic for months and months. Next Mammoth Ski Club meeting is the second weekend of April, the 9th and 10th so plan for that. If you haven’t entered the drawing for the FREE Mammoth Mountain unlimited Season pass, go to www.MammothSkiClub.com now and enter.
