Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

November 22nd, 2017 @ 3:30 PM – Happy Thanksgiving from the team here at MammothSnowman.com.

We currently have a base of 2-5 feet out on the hill. Surface conditions are machine groomed with a soft surface and a firm base to start the day. 

As we move into mid day with highs so warm lower parts of the runs near the base area getting soft like it’s spring.

The runs higher up are a mix of the soft groomed that gets pushed around, a firm carvable base and some hard pack. There are also some areas with a icy layer.

Lifts running Thursday – Sunday (weather permitting) are Chairs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17 (for access only) and G1 and G2.

There are now 70 named runs opened, watch for obstacles as it’s still early season and what we call low tide. 

The Weather for today into Saturday, we can expect clear sky’s with highs in the 40s to low 50s. Lows will be in the mid 30s now so no snowmaking the next few nights. Winds will be light 15-25 MPH and then pick up during the day on Saturday.

Big changes are on the way for the weather late Saturday into early Monday. Expect winds to pick up later on Saturday and continue strong into the ski day on Sunday.

We will see increasing clouds with a chance of snow later Sunday and Sunday Night. Snow showers might continue into Monday.

If your traveling on Sunday there is a good chance you will encounter some snow in the upper reaches of town. It does not look like there will be any snow on 395, so once your out of town the wind is all you will be dealing with and maybe some light rain. 

How much snow can Mammoth Mountain expect? Over the last 24 hours models have gone a bit wetter, but let’s see that last a few more runs before getting excited.

Right it looks like the powder fields of Mammoth Mountain could pick up 10-18 inches of snow, that is double what we saw 24 hours ago. Of course this is just an outlook and not a forecast this far out.

The snow that does comes in looks to be heavy, so it should stick to the slick spots out on the hill. 

Stay tuned in here at MammothSnowman.com as we will be updating daily now.
