Mammoth receives over 7 feet

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Mammoth got over 7 feet of light dry snow last night and today. It's still dumping, and the storm total may be over 8 feet.

Very few lifts were operating, 395 north of Mammoth was closed, R2 everywhere else, and 203 from the village to main lodge closed in the afternoon.

Only the groomed runs were skiable, anywhere else was just too deep.

The next few days of skiing at Mammoth and June should be epic!

Man

I'm headed up there the day after the Rose Bowl, but the weather report looks bad. It should get pretty warm up there this week and no sign of new snow on the horizon. At least they finally got some some decent snow!

Oh yeah? Well Snowbowl got 4 1/2" of fluffy powder, and the lifts were open.......

That storm is generally headed our way, and may or not grace us with the leftovers, but looking out further to the west there is one monster of a front on it's way.

I saw that picture and thought, "Fantastic!". Those people digging out their cars in a blizzard are sooo lucky.

Obviously you were not there yesterday. Signs were posted warning people to stay on the groomed runs. Anyone, no matter how fat their skis were, who ventured off piste immediately sank past their waist and got stuck - including snowboarders.

This may be a dumb question but when will everything be skiable? I still can't believe how much snow they got and am anxiously waiting pictures.

I will concied this point. I have been in Sierra snow that was so deep and accumulated so fast that is was dangerous to venture into it. However 8 hours later the snow sets and settles down, making it bottomless fun.

Yep no powder!

We just got 10+ feet of Base and will ski into July. Not powder, but that will come later. We will take the base over powder any day at this point.

Right now we are skiing epic wind pack sugar duff type snow! Mammoth lovers know what I am talking about.

Parts of the Holiday storms gave us 4-1 snow ratio's, but in the spring when most people are mowing their lawns we will be skiing for months to come.

I love a good base Storm.

Cheers!
