Mammoth Mountain & Mammoth Lakes Weather

This week is going to start off feeling like winter is back with off and on snow showers for Mammoth Mountain and Mammoth Lakes.

As we move into midweek there could still be some snow showers and they could be mixed in with a few raindrops as highs start to recover to more normal spring temperatures.

By Friday skies clear out and skies should remain clear right through next weekend and into the long-range.

For the full details on the day by day snowfall forecast amounts, discussions, highs, lows, and wind speeds check out our Mammoth Mountain Weather Page.

Who Are We?

Steve Taylor – The Mammoth Snowman Over the last 30+ years, Snowman has spent countless hours studying and learning about Mammoth Mountain Weather and Snow Conditions first hand. He has been skiing around the hill with marked ski poles since March of 1991 so he can measure the fresh snowfall amounts out on the hill. 

Snowman started blogging this information back in 1990 on the old Mammoth BBS system, then the RSN Forums and then on to in 2004 with Video & Photo Blog report. (No YouTube back then). Facebook got added to the fold back in 2008 and then the Facebook Group in 2016. 

Reports, videos, and photos from the website have been featured on both local TV Stations here in Mammoth, along with AP, Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC News.

Ted Schlaepfer – The Mammoth WeatherGuy – Powder Forecast – These forecasts are now responsible for many people getting multiple powder days on Mammoth Mountain over the years.  People email us saying they plan their days off around The Mammoth WeatherGuy Powder Forecasts.

Ted’s Bio: Ted has been a full-time Meteorologist (CCM) for the past 25+ years. He has always been fascinated with the weather,” skiing was just a natural extension of my love for snow and rain. I started skiing at age 5,  first discovered Mammoth in 1979 as a youth, and have been a regular visitor since the late ’80s.”.

Here is the link to The WeatherGuy Page with all his great insights on the weather, updates happen every Tuesday and Friday by 5 PM during the ski season.
