Welcome to MammothSnowman.com
Tuesday at Noon – Boom Happy Spring it’s coming in like a roaring Lion. Snow is already starting to fall here at Canyon Lodge as of this post.
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.
The snow out on the hill today was a ton of fun once again with over 2000 acres of groomed out packed powder, including Cornice Bowl & Scotties. We did have some flat light conditions at times.
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.
There is a fresh photo snow report posted down the page from Monday, take a look and you can see what the coverage looks like on the Mountain.
So what do we expect on Wednesday? We expect the storm to start to pick up with rain and snow. Snow levels will be above 8000-8500 feet so that will mean possible rain at Canyon and Eagle Lodge.
Snow levels will be down to 7500 – 8000 feet Wednesday night and down to 7000-7500 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.
