Mammoth Snowman Snow Stoke and Snowman Report Video

Welcome to

Wednesday at 9 AM – Boom Happy Spring it’s coming in like a roaring Lion. Over the last 24 hours we have picked up 10 – 15 inches of fresh sierra cement.

Early this morning the snow level went above 9000 feet for a couple hours, now it’s back down to 8200-8500 feet.

This weeks forecast calls for at least an additional 3-5 feet of snow with some areas of the crest near Mammoth Mountain expected to see 6 feet possible. 

This will be a warm system and most of the snowfall will be a heavier Sierra Cement.

We call these base storms and this is just what need to extend our winter season right to the end of spring and maybe beyond. 

It does appear at the back end of this system we could see a foot or more of lighter powder, but no light and dry stuff without the cold air like we saw the last 3 weeks. 

Current snow conditions: We now have a base of 50-150 inches from Little Eagle to the top of Mammoth Mountain. Look for that base to go way up over the next 3-5 days. 

So what do we expect Today?  We expect the storm to start to pick up with rain and snow. It’s a gore tex day out on the hill. Could see 5-7 inches of sierra cement fall. 

Snow levels will be down to 7500 feet early on Thursday for much better skiing and boarding conditions.   

As you can see below the NWS has a Winter Storm Warning now posted, look at those forecasted snowfall numbers for the powder fields of Mammoth at 9800 feet.  WOW

Enjoy Winter in Spring thru the weekend…. Snowman out
