Mammoth Snowman Report 5-11-2017

5-11-2017 – 6:42 AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we currently have clear skies.

Weather conditions for today we expect highs in the 50’s with winds 15-20 MPH gusting to 35+ over the higher elevations out of the SW.

For Friday winds pick up a bit and things start to cool off with 10+ degrees of cooling. Highs for Friday and Saturday will be in the 40s. Then down into the 30s on Sunday, next week we have snow showers in the forecast once again.

Snow conditions this week are now converting from fresh powder turns into spring snow once again. The change over started on Tuesday so look for some corn snow possible by Thursday into Friday.

Lifts running this week (weather permitting) will be chairs 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 23 and G1 and G2. More lifts will run over the weekend like 12, 13, 14 and possible 4 and 5. There is still a base of 150-320+ inches out on the hill.

Here at and our sister site Discover Mammoth we will keep you update year round of what conditions and weather our like. We are going to also be bringing back our Discover Mammoth Today videos reports twice a week.

Have a great day and I hope to see you this spring and summer here in Mammoth Lakes and out on Mammoth Mountain. I always have free stickers in my pocket so just say hello. We will ski you later, Snowman out!
