Mammoth Snowman Report 5-29-2017

5-29-2017 – Hello from Mammoth Mountain! Happy Memorial Day, never forget the people that got us our Freedom.

Weather wise we expect clear skies with highs in the mid 50s the next couple days. On Wednesday we cool off into the 40s with a chance of showers.

The end of the week into next weekend we will warm up again with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s with SW winds at times 10-20 MPH.

Snow conditions are now full on spring conditions. The Memorial Day weekend crowdshas been loving it out on the hill. Got to love that the ski area opened chair 17 out of Canyon Lodge making the parking problem go away.

Yesterday Snowman skied back for more to get home for the day, I have never done that past late April before. Chair 9 also ran this weekend and offered up some great spring corn snow. Scroll down the page to see my latest Photo Snow Report from Sunday.

If your coming up this week make plans to start out of the mill and ride up chair 2. If you want some firm snow get out at 7:30 AM and hit up the Main Lodge area, the Face of 3 and a groomed out Cornice.

The snow starts to get soft fast and by 8:30 AM Stump Alley is soft with everything else getting soft by 9:30 AM.  Cornice and Sunshine have silver lined corn going off by 9:30 to 10 am.

Lifts running this week and into the weekend will be chairs 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 23 and G1 and G2. Expect G1 and G2 to be closed week days for summer maintenance the first two weeks of June. It will run on the weekend just not mid week.

There is still a base of 120-275+ inches out on the hill. That base will allow the Mountain to remain open into August or beyond at this point.

You should be able to ski down to Main Lodge into mid July with Stump Alley possibly open into the July 4th weekend. After that you will be downloading from Mc Coy Station. The last time we stayed open this long was in 1995.

Snowman will be out on the hill every other day right up until we close. Expect more photo snow reports and video updates on a weekly basis.  Ski ya later, Snowman out.
