Free Hot Wax Footloose Sports10-21-17 8:30 AM Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, 19 days and zero hours to go before the ski area opens. Snowman feels so excited I hope you do too.

Yesterday we picked up 2-3 inches of snow out on the hill with a bit more up top. As of this post we have clear sky’s, very light winds and highs in the 30s.

Snowmaking crews have come on board and have set up snowmaking guns on Broadway and Saddle Bowl. Cooler air looks to be coming in around 7-10 days.

Until then we will have a warming trend with highs into the 60’s on the hill and night time lows into the mid 30s.

This should be the last taste of the 60’s on the hill until sometime next spring.

Things to do while we wait for winter sports to start:

For a fall colors drive Rock Creek Canyon has peaked up high but is still good lower down and mid way up. The June Lake Loop is all full of Color as is Crowley Lake and Old Mammoth. We are past peak now, but still some colors to check out for one last weekend.

Fall Mountain Biking is a ton of fun and it’s all based on peddle power. You can still ride the Bike Park just watch for crews getting ready for winter.

All Inyo Forest Trails are open and in prime shape for a ride.  Nothing like a ride with perfect fall weather. Rock Creek Canyon is also perfect now and there are a ton of fall colors.

Hiking is still wide open, most of the snow that fell 9/21 has melted now so it’s much easier to get around. Try the Sherwin Lakes Hike for a bit of color or a hike around Convict Lake will also offer up a colorful experience.
