Mammoth Snowman Weather and Snow Report 10-14-2017

Welcome to

Free Hot Wax Footloose Sports10-14-17 8AM  – Hello from Mammoth Mountain. 

At this time we have some great fall weather in the area. Fall colors as of today are peaking out. If you’re into Fall Colors now is the time to head up to Mammoth. 

Things to do while we wait for winter sports to start:

For a fall colors drive Rock Creek Canyon has peaked up high but is still good lower down and mid way up. The June Lake Loop is all full of Color as is Crowley Lake and Old Mammoth. 

Fall Mountain Biking is a ton of fun and it’s all based on peddle power. You can still ride the Bike Park just watch for crews getting ready for winter.

All Inyo Forest Trails are open and in prime shape for a ride.  Nothing like a ride with perfect fall weather. Rock Creek Canyon is also perfect now and there are a ton of fall colors.

Hiking is still wide open, most of the snow that fell 9/21 has melted now so it’s much easier to get around. Try the Sherwin Lakes Hike for a bit of color or a hike around Convict Lake will also offer up a colorful experience. 

Opening day for Winter Sports on Mammoth Mountain is November 9th, 2017. If we get 2-3 feet on the ground before that they will open early.

Snowmaking crews should start to come on board for set up and training around the 21st of October.

**Weather for Mammoth Mountain: Expect highs in the 50s the next few days with highs in the 60s in town. Night time lows for the next week will be down into the 30’s and into the upper 20s. Expect light winds at times the next couple days 5-10 MPH.

For the upcoming week the storm we have mentioned for two weeks is finally on our door step. As of this morning QPF would indicated 12-18 inches of snow. Yes way up from the 3-6 inches we have been talking about. One model had close to 2 inches of water coming in over the Sierra crest Thursday into Friday.

These amounts will have to be looked at again on Monday and then we will have more confidence in what may be coming our way. At this time confidence is moderate that we will pick up a few inches at least.

Looking at snow levels, expect them to start out high on Thursday above 10,000 feet and then drop to around 8000 – 9000 feet as the storm moves thru on Thursday night. By Friday we will see snow showers all the way down to 6000 feet or possibly lower.

Pray for Snow – Snowman out
