Snowman’s Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 2-15-2012

What a epic morning out on Mammoth Mountain….we awoke to double the amount of snow we expected over night.

Checking things out around the powder fields of Mammoth Mountain this morning, I found a solid 8-14 inches of nice light powder.

The snow had just enough constancy that it skied perfect.  A light and dry Mammoth Mountain powder day with not much wind all morning long.

Anyone who knows the mountain would feel blessed to have been out this morning.   Going to be some good skiing and riding for the foreseeable future.  Yahoo

Powder Day on Red Tail - Mammoth Mountain - 02-15-12Powder Day on Red Tail

First thing this am after riding up 15, we jumped  into Red Tail and it was a lot deeper then we expected. You had to point them to get some speed up to turn. Chair 22 was open and awaiting us below.

Top of Chair 22 - Mammoth MountainSnowman crew grabbed the 5th Chair up 22 and it was off to powder dream land once again.

Near the top of 22 we found winds blowing up the Avy Chutes.   So we went the other way and the winds dispersed.

Nothing like skiing or riding in fresh powder while it is snowing with just a little wind at Mammoth.

First run was right down Grizzly, I was the third one in and got my own line all the way down the face.  The snow was a good 12-14 inches deep if not more.   It was a fantastic run to start of full on powder morning.

Powder Day at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area 2-15-12Powder Powder and more Powder!

After a few laps in here we teamed up with some other friends and we headed over to the Face of Five for laps.  Everyone wanted to ride Five since the lift gets you up the hill so fast.

The Face of Chair 5 - Mammoth MountainThe Face of Five was a good 12-14+ inches deep in spots

The face of five is a sweet place to ski powder.  That new chair lift is in the perfect spot and know one is traversing the face on a powder day.  Hurry to that, thanks to Mammoth Mountain for this new wonderful ski lift.  WE LOVE IT!

Over on Chair 3 a NE wind was blowing up the face and it was clouded in good.  That meant not a lot of people on the face runs.

When we got over there for a few laps we still found fresh lines all over. Christmas, Lower Face, West Bowl all had good powder to track up.

Coverage is great on the face of three.  Still some rocks here and there but it’s looking good on all the main ride able paths.

Grabbed some powder off the side of West Bowl

If your thinking about getting some skiing and riding in, Mammoth Mountain is now in GREAT SHAPE.   Time to make up for those dry months that are behind us.  I hope to see you out on the hill in the next few days or weeks. Please say hello….
