Mammoth Mountain has so much snow that they are running out of places to put it. Mammoth’s snow base conservatively measured (at the bottom, not top of the mountain) is 17.5 – 27 feet, and it is due to snow hard over the weekend. They even cancelled Early Ups for MVP Pass holders this weekend, and postposed it to the weekend of April 2.
Only Mammoth could even be open with this much snow because Dave McCoy was smart enough to build the lifts so they can be raised and lowered instead of having to continually dig them out after each storm. Thanks Dave!
Here’s how buried McCoy Station is mid-mountain:
Here’s the Main Lodge with steps down to the outside patio which sits 22 feet off the ground in Summer:
Everywhere was excellent today. My favorite today was a rope line skiers’ right that was filling in with soft, buttery powder each run. Can you guess where that is? I’ll guide the Mammoth Ski Club members there next time we ski on a powder day.
Spring skiing will be excellent for 3-4 months, so join Mammoth Ski Club members for events at Mammoth each month. Mammoth Ski Club is offering a drawing for a FREE Mammoth Mountain Unlimited Season Pass. You can enter here at www.MammothSkiClub.com
Mammoth Mountain got 27-44″ of new snow in the last 24 hours and 54-88″ of snow on this last storm, with more on the way. We’re very close to breaking the all time record of the most snowfall in a season at Mammoth Mountain!
The Mill at the bottom of chair 2 is buried. Here’s the snow right up to and over the top of the glass wind break on the outside patio:
More snow tomorrow with a possible window on Sunday. See You On the Slopes!
