Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

November 19th, 2017 @ 7 AM – Hello from a Winter Wonder Land on Mammoth Mountain. 

Current conditions on the hill include blue sky’s with highs headed into the upper 30s to low 40s.

Even with highs in the 40s the snow stay’s in winter snow pack mode as the snow is very low in the sky at this time of year.

Wind’s today are gusting to 22 MPH at Main and up to 44 MPH out of the NW up top.

We currently have a base of 2 – 6 feet out on the hill from Main Lodge to the top. Over at Canyon there is about 5-6 inches of frozen base snow and ice on the ground. 

Last night they made snow on Little Bird and Roller Coaster @ chair 17 7 chair 4. Let’s hope that is a sign of running that lift for access for next weeks big Thanksgiving crowd that we expect. 

Surface conditions are a machine groomed packed powder with some nice wind buff that has spots of powder sugar on it from the wind. You stay on top of all the new snow we got, there was no powder.

Lifts now running are chairs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 23 along with G1 and G2. Chairs 13 and 14 will be open for the Thanksgiving Holiday. 
So for today Sunday I am taking out the big Snow Cam to get some footage for a video snow report. Check back late today to see that video report. 

Stay tuned in here at MammothSnowman.com as we will be updating daily now.

Sky ya later…. Snowman out!

PS Next chance for snow is about 8 days out…
