Mammoth Mountain has now surpassed its’ previous record snowfall, and has more than 600 inches of snow that have fallen this ski season. The most recent storm dumped 5.5-9 feet of new snow. Overnight 13-21 ” of fresh powder has fallen.
The winds are low on the gauges with chair 1 wind gauge showing only 1o mph average winds and gusts to 30, but on the webcam I can see “snownados” in West Bowl, so it is fairly windy. It looks like a day that potentially chairs 3, 5, 23 and the upper gondola may open. There is unlimited fresh powder on top because it has been closed all week along with chair 9 and Dragon’s Back.
The Forecasted High today is 39 with a Low of 20 for Mammoth Lakes weather. A Hazardous Weather Outlook is posted for today. Winds in town are out of the SSW at 13 with gusts to 32 mph. The forecast for Monday through Thursday is for sunny days with warming temperatures.
I am skiing with Mammoth Ski Club members on Monday and Tuesday, so I am off the slopes today. I’m hoping the winds die down tomorrow, but it will be good anywhere you can get to today because of the winds. You see Mammoth’s greatest asset is not the fresh fallen snow, but the wind-blown powder that lightens up and moves around the mountian for 2-4 days after a storm.
Come up and celebrate the deepest snowbase I have ever seen at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort. It is 17-27 feet deep CONSERVATIVELY! Spring Skiing will be epic for months. I invite you to join us. Tomorrow, I’ll See You On the Slopes!
