Happy “Glad to get my taxes done”Day. The National Weather Service forecasts some nice skiing weather with partly cloudy skies today, Saturday, and Sunday. The temperatures are predicted to be in the 50’s during the day, and the 30’s at night. The next possible snow fall is forecast for Monday with a 30% chance of snow.
Here’s what the Avalanche Chutes looked like earlier:
Mammoth has a deep snow base at 14-24 feet, so coverage is excellent throughout the entire ski resort. Snow conditions are best on the lower slopes early usually. Then you can work your way up the mountain as the crust on top of the snow thaws revealing perfect Spring skiing.
Here’s what Varmits and MJB’s looks like:
Crowds are low and with these temperatures, you can wear just 2 layers on top and be fine. The winds are low with the chair 1, tower 9 wind gauge showing only 10 mph average wind speeds with gusts to only 20 mph at this windy part of the mountain.
So it looks like another beautiful day and weekend to ski Mammoth Mountain. If you haven’t entered the drawing for the Free Mammoth Mountain Season Pass ($1675.00 Value) yet, go to www.MammothSkiClub.com and enter now. See You On the Slopes!
