Mammoth Snowman Report 4-2-2017

4-2-2017 – 6PM Pt Cloudy Skies over Mammoth Mountain.

Snow Conditions are full on spring at this time. With the lower 2/3rds of the hill soft and slushy and the upper hill still with winter pack for the most part.

The weather forecast calls for a chance of rain and snow showers on Monday and then back to sunny with spring weather Tuesday into Wednesday.

By Thursday night we get one last taste of the winter of 2017 A/R events. Snow levels look to start above 8000 feet and then drop to 6500-7000 feet by Saturday.

This far out it is unclear how much we get snowfall wise. Tons of moisture looks to be headed our way with 4-7 inches of water coming in Friday into next Sunday. Snowman and Weather Guy will be watching and updating you daily with what we see coming.

This should be the last AR event of the season and it could offer up big snow with high winds once again. If your thinking of coming up I would plan on being here at the end of the cycle so your not sitting around with no lifts open.

I will update first thing on Monday morning….

FYI: If you do not have a season pass now is the time to get one. You can start using it now 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 this coming Wednesday.
