Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

2-20-2018 @ 8 AM – Good morning winter is back with 6-10 inches of new light and dry powder.

Currently we have clear blue skies with temperatures just above 0 at Main Lodge, winds out on the hill are SW 10-20 MPH. Highs will get into the low 20s by mid morning. 

The snow on Monday was a ton of fun. We had some great powder turns and a few dust on crust encounters as well. Up on 5 we found 4-6 inches of fresh. Hitting the high traverse off the back of three we found a good 8-10 inches of fresh and up in P2 there was almost a foot of new snow.

The snow was light but not total blower powder. Also to note for Mammoth it was brutally cold wind chills in the -30s at times.

Snow conditions today will offer up plenty of left over powder stashes. If you’re a groomer lover the top surface’s will be fresh packed powder, just the way we like it. 

The weather will get snow showery at times starting on Wednesday. Highs will remain below freezing all week, with very cold over night lows. Winds will be light to moderate at times thru Friday. Over the week would could see an additional 7-10+ inches of snow fall from Main Lodge to the Top of Mammoth Mountain. Let’s hope the system picks up some bonus moisture for bonus snowfall.

Long Range weather shows more snow possible next week into the first week of March. The chart below is just an outlook but each run of this model keeps showing winter making it’s first real appearance. 

With the lack of snow at elevations below Mammoth Mountain there are tons of other options for fun you can tie in with ski and snowboarding. Check out our sister site DiscoverMammoth.com for more idea’s on things to do. 

See you on the hill…

Photo Snow Report for 2-16-2018 – Taken by Snowman with the Cannon RT5i

Took this photo from the top of chair 16 at 8:35 AM. Face of Five is first in view with Climax and the top of Mammoth Mountain in the back.
First run of the day was a trip thru south park to get some photos of the set up. Soft Corduroy in here made for some fun turns.

Looking up at Solitude from the top of Wall Street – Still a few floaters on Solitude with some very nice groomed out snow.
