Mammoth Snowman Snow Stoke and Snowman Report Video

Welcome to

Friday at 6:30 AM – 3-6 feet of new snow from Little Eagle to the top of Mammoth Mountain from our last storm.

Expect LONG delays in getting the entire hill open today, going to be at least noon before that happens for all lifts.

So the forecast verified right on with multipal feet of very heavy wet sierra cement.

That was some of the heaviest snow I have ever been in, not the powder we had for the last three weeks.

The good news is base storms like these can extend our season several weeks so expect skiing well into June this year. 

Current Conditions: Clear skies over head at this time, but with a cloud over the top, with highs in the 20’s expected today with a low of 16.  

Winds are gusting to 60 up top with winds at 9500 feet at 5-25 MPH. Expect more wind on Saturday with gusts to 50 MPH ahead of the next little storm system heading our way. That system looks to bring in 4-8 inches by Sunday morning. 

We now have a base of 75-175 inches from Little Eagle to the top of Mammoth Mountain.

What will the snow conditions be like with the new heavy wet snow? Last time we had a storm like this when the top opened up it had all turned to a very soft wind buff. It will be interesting to see what we get when lifts open today.

Snowman will report back after I try it out and time allows for a fresh post. Looks like mid winter up here, time to make your plans for a winter in spring trip.
