Mammoth Snowman Report – 3-23-2017


3-23-2017 – 7AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we have clear skies with 6-12 inches of fresh snow on the hill.

Sorry for the lack of reports and fresh images, Snowman picked up a virus that will not let go. Going to be at least a week before I get back out, maybe longer.

For today expect highs in the 30’s with lows in the 20’s. West winds will be light 5-15 MPH.

On Friday Snow will be likely after 11am. Expect highs in the 30s again with the snow level at 8000 feet. It will also be very windy, with a southwest wind 35 to 45 mph, with gusts as high as 75 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60% with 1-3 inches of snow expected.

Saturday looks to have lighter winds and snow showers, there could be about a foot of fresh to start the day as well.

Snow Conditions are now a mix of spring and winter conditions across the hill.  Start out at the mill for the best groomed surface conditions. Yes it’s firm early and as things warm up the snow gets softer.

The 8-12 inches of new snow should offer up some powder up top today. I would expect a few spots to be dust on crust so watch out for the hard stuff.

I will have a update on conditions on Friday, I got a crew headed out today and they report back so I can get you fresh data from the hill.

The base at Main is at the 175-inch mark, with over 300 inches over the top of the mountain. Expect all lifts and runs to be open until wind speeds are in in excess of 55 MPH.
