Mammoth Snowman Snow Stoke and Snowman Report Video
Welcome to MammothSnowman.com
Tuesday at 6AM we will have an update for you around 10 AM today….
Monday – 2 PM – The March Miracle continues with 3-5 feet of new snow last week.
This weeks forecast call for at least an additional 3-5 feet or more, however this will be a warm system and most of the snow fall with be a heavier sierra cement.
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.
Current snow conditions: We now have a base of 50-150 inches from Little Eagle to the top of Mammoth Mountain.
The snow out on the hill today was a ton of fun with over 2000 acres of groomed out packed powder, including Cornice Bowl & Scotties.
Off the groomed the snow is in transition from powder crud to packed out snow. Some spots are soft and fun while others will are still a bumpy ride.
Snowman skied from Little Eagle over to 14 and back today and everything was in great mid winter shape. There is a fresh photo snow report posted down the page so you can see what it looks like up here.
As we move into Tuesday highs will climb into the low 30s with increasing clouds and winds with some snow possible later in the day. Winds will be increasing during the morning hours and will be gusting to 25-35 MPH lower on the hill with gusts to 50+ MPH over the top.
On Wednesday we expect the storm to start to pick up with rain and snow. Snow levels will be above 8500 feet so that will mean rain at Canyon and Eagle Lodge. Snow levels will be down to 7500 – 8000 feet Wednesday night and down to 7000 on Thursday for much better skiing and boarding conditions.
As you can see below the NWS has a Winter Storm Watch now posted, look at those forecasted snowfall numbers for the powder fields of Mammoth at 9800 feet.
Also I talked to WeatherGuy just now and he noted that the EC model is now up to 8 inches of water coming in for Mammoth. Yikes! That would translate in the a ton of snowfall for us.
