coupon-ski-rentals-mamoth-lakes11-24-2016 – 7 AM – Happy Thanksgiving. We are expecting clear skies today into Friday.

Look for high’s in the mid 30’s at Main Lodge today. Winds today will be at 10-15 MPH with stronger winds up top.

For Friday expect increasing winds with gusts during the day up to 50 MPH over the top of Mammoth Mountain.

Then on Saturday we get increasing winds and clouds leading to a chance of snow or snow showers late Saturday into Monday. Snow fall amount’s look to be 6-12 inches of snow by mid day Monday. Confidence in the snowfall amounts for the weekend storm is low.

Snowman will be back out on the hill on Today and will post up a fresh photo snow report for you late in the day.

I hope to get our video reports rolling next week as well. Had a bit of a set back with a bad neck injury so a bit behind the last two weeks. Pray for snow and Happy Thanksgiving.mammoth_snowman_photos0001 mammoth_snowman_photos0002 mammoth_snowman_photos0003 mammoth_snowman_photos0004 mammoth_snowman_photos0005 mammoth_snowman_photos0007 mammoth_snowman_photos0009 mammoth_snowman_photos0010 mammoth_snowman_photos0012 mammoth_snowman_photos0013 mammoth_snowman_photos0014

Snow Conditions Report and News From The Hill

The Unbound Park is now open after a massive snowmaking run. It’s still low tide in the park but they have some cool features set up along with 1 big jump. More will be coming out for the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend.

Bus Service the Red Line and the Blue Lines are now open for the winter season here in Mammoth Lakes.

Lifts open at this time: Chairs 1, 2, 3 and 11 along with G1 and G2.

Runs that will be open today weather permitting: Apple Pie, Broadway, Stump Alley, Rusty’s, Andy’s Double Gold, Saddle Bowl, Center Bowl, Christmas Bowl, China Bowl, West Bowl, Cornice Bowl, Dave’s, Climax and the Drop Outs.

Snowmaking has been running off and on all week long. Conditions look good for snow making nightly for the next week. There could be a couple days cold enough to blow snow all day long as well.

If your coming up for Thanksgiving, terrain is going to be very limited compared to last season. Leave early to get to the hill and be ready for a lot of people here on Holiday.

Snow Report Update 11-23-2016 – Out on the hill we currently have a base of 6-36+ inches from Main Lodge up to the top. Last night we picked up 1-2 inches of new snow and that made for some nice groomed packed powder this morning. Some people did go for the fresh, but way to low tide to be hunting off trail powder.

The snow surface on the groomers is now a mix of soft packed powder along with some firmer groomed out man made snow. You will also find some ice out there so watch your self out on the hill.

Up top they have been grooming Cornice and it is carving great first thing in the moring. Just beware of the first 100 feet it’s solid ice. Off of Cornice you’re going to need a good edge as there is some nice firm wind buff mixed in with some ice and suck pack.

Getting Stump Alley Ready – Tuesday at 8AM – STUMP IS NOW OPEN!!!img_5546-1
