I skied today and it was excellent. No pictures because it was snowing, cloudy, and flat light all day. Mammoth Mountain was a little slow in opening today. Chair 2 opened about 8:40, and chair 1 opened about 9 or so. There was more snow than claimed on Mammoth’s official report.
I found boot-top powder off chairs 1, 2 and 3 today. The Wall to the Glades was great, and so was Gravy and Baby Gravy Chute. The trees had a nice accumulation. I think the best snow I skied was in West Bowl off chair 3. Some of it was scoured by the winds, but most of it was smooth and pillowy soft when chair 3 opened about 10:30 or so.
It was snowing when I arrived at 8:30, and it kept snowing consistently for the whole time I was there, intensifying in the afternoon. I left about 1:30 after skiing until my legs weren’t co-operating as they should;)
More snow is expected through Friday and Saturday morning. This should be an excellent weekend to come up to Mammoth Mountain, and enjoy some late season powder skiing. I’ll be skiing with Mammoth Ski Club members on Saturday and Sunday at our monthly meeting, and will report on ski conditions then. See You On the Slopes!
