Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

1-20-2018 @ 7 AM – we picked up 3-5 inches on Friday and then 1-2 inch last night. The entire hill opened on Friday so no un-tracked off the top today. Should be plenty of left overs in the chair 14 area and in the Hemlock area. 

Out on the hill we have a base of 20-80 inches from little Eagle to the top of Mammoth Mountain with over 2000 acres of groomed out terrain ready to ride on.

The snow on Friday offered up some fresh powder turns, while it was not that deep the snow was soft and fun. There where also powder stash’s in spots boot deep.

For this weekend, Snowman recommend’s you hit the top and the face’s of chairs 3 and 5. Should be some of the best snow of the year in these areas. 

Weather for this weekend looks to clear out fast for the Big Half Pipe Contest on Saturday. We even have Fireworks in the offering Saturday night at Main Lodge. Thank you Mammoth Mountain!

Highs will be in the 20’s today with lows around 12 and then high’s warming on Sunday into the upper 20’s to low 30’s. Winds today will be NW to 50 MPH at times.

We get a chance for more snowfall starting some time Sunday Night into Monday, just going to be a dusting at this time. There is a better chance for snowfall Thursday of this upcoming week. How much is anyone’s guess as of Saturday morning. We will update you later today…
