2-18-2018 @ 8 AM – Good morning with have wind gusts to 80 over the top of Mammoth Mountain this morning. G2, chair 23 and chair 14 are on wind hold as this time.
Skies are already clouding up and that will continue this morning with mostly cloudy skies the rule today. There is even a chance of some snow showers later today.
Highs today will be into the 30’s with moderate to strong winds gusting to 80+ MPH over the higher elevations.
By Monday highs will be around 17 at Main and expect it to be windy with a chance of snow showers. As of now the snowfall forecast is calling for 2-6 inches of fresh light snow over the ski area.
From my report on Friday: Snow conditions this morning were soft again on all the groomers, Cornice was the only really firm groomer I hit.
Best runs: Saddle Bowl, Center Bowl, World Cup, Terry’s, St. Anton, Broadway and Scotties are all in great shape and perfect corduroy first thing in the morning.
Up top Cornice and Scotties are groomed fast fun and off those runs it’s a very firm but carvable winter wind pack.
Over the last week the snowmaking crew has down a lot of work covering up low spots in the base. A lot of the areas that had floaters are now all covered back up again. The runs down to Canyon are in good shape and worth a few laps.
Taking a look at the Unbound Park’s they have done a complete rebuild I posted fresh images of South Park and Unbound Main below. Forest Trail park was closed when I went to check it out at 11 today.
Long Range weather shows more snow on Thursday into Friday with more chance of snow beyond that time frame.
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…
