25% off Black Tie Ski Rental Discount1-30-2017 – 8 AM – Good morning from Mammoth, we have clear blue skies this morning.

Things have warmed up big time with Main lodge getting up to a 48 on Sunday.

Currently we have a temperature at Main of 29 with a 36 up top.

Highs today will be in around 50 at 9000 feet with a west wind 10-20 MPH over the upper elevations.

Night time lows will continue in the upper twenties to low 30s the next couple nights.

Highs will drop starting Tuesday and the Winds will start to pick up out of the SW, with gusts to 35 possible over the upper elevations.

Look for wind buff possibly starting Tuesday with a great chance for moving snow on Wednesday with winds gusts above 50 MPH.

Roads are now clear, please carry chains at all times and watch for black ice and packed snow on the roads in spots.

Snow conditions: Packed Powder on the Groomers and skier and rider packed powder off trail.

Snowman is on his way out to get you a updated conditions report along with some fresh images. We will have those up before 5pm today.

Locals Choice take the Gondola to the top and then take Cornice or Scotties all the way back to the bottom. It’s fast groomed out fun first thing before the crowds hit.

All lifts and runs are now open on Mammoth Mountain on a Base of 150 to 300 inches of snow.

All this fair and warm weather will start to firm things up real fast, the good news is we have more snow on the way this week.

Storm Riders be ready late Wednesday into Thursday we could see 1-2+ feet of fresh snow out on the hill. Friday looks to be bluebird with the powder hounds out.

Now is the time to make plans to come to Mammoth and see and play in all this snow. Make sure to scroll down this page for some local coupons and for fresh images from last Tuesday.

Also to note we will have the Record Snow Design out this Wednesday. Sorry for the delay we been shoveling out for days, now that we have caught up we can finish the design with Craig Fine.
