It is windy and stormy again today. Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort reports 31-34″ of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24 hours over their 15-22 foot snowbase. This ski season is one of the top 5 snowiest seasons in 40 years at Mammoth!
Here’s how West Bowl looked on Tuesday when the clouds broke:
There is a Winter Storm Warning today, so travel will be tricky. The National Weather Service forecasts a 100% chance of snow today, 60% Friday, 70% Saturday, and 30% on Sunday. The local radar show a large plume of moisture to our immediate North represented in mostly green.
The forecasted High today is 26, and the Low is 19 for Mammoth Lakes weather. The winds are out of the SW at 7 mph, with gusts to 27 mph in town. The chair 1 tower 9 wind gauge shows erratic winds averaging 10 with gusts to 35 mph. It looks windier on the mountain, especially on the gusts. Only the lower chairs on the mountain are open, and the upper chairs are unlikely to open due to the weather.
