1-28-2020 8:30 AM Good Morning, we have clear blue skies up here in Mammoth today. It looks like some great weather over the next week if you like clear skies with light winds.
Snow Conditions have improved with the 3-4 inches of heavier snow the mountain received on Sunday. That new snow has allowed them to groomer out some real nice packed powder snow over the entire hill.
Up top, the new snow-covered a lot of the old base with some nice turns for those who got out on Monday.
Current Conditions: Up top, the temperature is 20 with a WSW wind at 39 and gusting to 44 MPH. Down at Main Lodge, the temperature is 33 with an SSE at 16 gusting t 28 MPH.
Roads: 395 and 203 are clear at this time and expected to remain dry throughout the week into the weekend.
Mammoth Mountain on Hill Weather: Today is looking like a nice Wind Buff Day with winds 35-45 MPH out of the SW during the day, that would allow most lifts to run with the sugar snow blowing all around.
Wednesday expect pt cloudy skies with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s with winds out of the north wind 25-35 mph, with gusts up 55 mph over high elevations
The Weekend Outlook is calling for mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s, with light winds. It should be a great mid-winter weekend.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report
1-28-2020 8 AM – Out on Mammoth Mountain the 3-4 inches of new snow did a good job refreshing the current snow conditions.
On the groomers, you will find some really nice soft packed powder with the best snow from Chair 16 over to Chair 12. Up top, there is a mix of some softer packed powder with some sections that had bumps is a mix of soft and firm.
I plan on doing a full photo snow report with some fresh video as well on Wednesday, that full report will be posted by Thursday morning for you.
Here are the current base depths out on Mammoth Mountain. Eagle Lodge Area 1-3 feet – Canyon Lodge Area 2-3 feet – Snow Study Site at Main 4 feet – Up Top 6 feet
All lifts are now running for the winter season (wind and weather permitting), lift hours are 8:30 AM to 4 PM.
Mammoth Area Shuttles are also running for the season, when you check into your lodging ask about the closest shuttle stop and leave your car at the condo.

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 MammothSnowman.com 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.
