Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 3-2-2018 from Steve Taylor the Snowman

Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

3-2-2018 – 2PM – 32-55 inches of new snow from Main to the top of Mammoth Mountain has fallen for a storm total. Currently it’s still snowing light to moderate out on the hill.

Looking at the newest data coming in it looks like we could see 18-24+ inches of additional snow over the next 36 hours from the 9000 foot level up.

So more powder on the way for Saturday and Sunday. Winds will come way down so more lifts should be able to run on Saturday morning.

Also to note Saturday is early ups for you season pass holders starting at 7:30 AM. 

Checking with lifts ops 22, 25, 3, 5, 9, the top and the back side are all closed. Good chance that 3, 5, 22 and 25 could open on Saturday. With everything open by around lunch time on Sunday.

Out on the hill today we had high winds and a ton of new wind loaded snow. That allowed just lower lifts to run with chair 2 and 10 being the highest lift served terrain today.

The powder was wind effected and not as dry as yesterday or Tuesday, but still was a ton of fun. Funny it felt like that was only 8-10 inches of fresh even with 50 inches new on the ground. 

Local Choice for Saturday is hit up early ups for some fresh powder and some free food. Expect just lower mountain lifts for early ups, let’s just pray the winds do as forecasted and back off.

Mammoth Lakes & Mammoth Mountain are now a winter wonder land, if you been waiting for winter get up here it’s all white and fresh and we now have a decent base.

More good news is there is more snow on the way next weekend and beyond. March is looking to be at least normal for snowfall. Better late then never is what we got!

Nice to see winter making a come back for more info on the weather check out Weather Guys post from Tuesday PM for more information.

So the arrow below does not point right at Mammoth Mountain, however watching this model for years that arrow points to what we get for snowfall. The models are great but I go by what I have seen over the years. If we have a good SW flow that is what will verify. Please use the coupons here if you can, with out them there would be no MammothSnowman.com.
