Mammoth Snowman Report – 3-31-2017

3-31-2017 – Noon – Good Day from Mammoth Mountain, we have 2-4  inches of fresh and with cloudy skies.

Snow Conditions are a bit firm with dust on crust over much of the hill. Once the sun comes out this weekend things should start to soften up.

If you’re coming up for the weekend with highs in the 40s we expect the snow will start to spring up over a lot of the hill.

Make sure to wax up as the winter to spring conversion can be a bit thick and slow you down.

With highs in the 40s over the weekend we expect things will start to spring up over a lot of the hill. Make sure to wax up as the winter to spring conversion can be a bit thick and slow you down.

By early next week we should start to see some good corn snow develop over on Chair’s 9 and 25.

FYI: If you do not have a season pass now is the time to get one. You can start using it this Saturday and it will be good all the way thru next ski season. Snowman calls that a great deal. Here is the link to get your season pass you can use this weekend. 

Snowman is recovering from a bad bout of bronchitis and should be back out for a few turns and a video update by early next week.

If you want to help out and get some images for our updated photo snow report join our Facebook Group and post them there. Here is the link to the Mammoth Snowman Private Facebook Group.
