Mammoth Snowman Report 11-6-2017

Welcome to

Monday November 6th, 2017 @ 8:30 AM – Hello everyone Snowman here with you, Mammoth is still set to open this Thursday.

Currently out on Mammoth Mountain the snowmaking system is running on Broadway, the path to Fascination and in the Unbound Main Park.

The storm that we had high hopes for was a bust for what was forecast. So no 1-3 feet, just a few inches on the ground for now.

For this week we have clear sky’s into Wednesday with highs in the 40s a Main Lodge. Low’s over night will be warming up, we expect a 19 tonight and then a 26 on Tuesday night.

Wednesday night looks to be a bit warm with a temp of 30 for the low at Main. So just limited snowmaking at that point. 

Winds will be 15-20 MPH out of the SW the next few days then will become moderate on Thursday as the cold front moves thru. 

What will be open come this Thursday? At this point at least Broadway will be open. If crew’s can make enough snow there should be a path with features in the Unbound Main. They are also blowing snow now on Andy’s Double Gold.

The Long Range Weather Outlook: Yikes how do you trust anything at this point? The door is open to get a storm in here next week so at this point it’s just wait it out see what happens. At least we do have snowmaking, I remeber all the years we did not have it and did not ski. 

Stay tuned in here at as we will be updating daily now.

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

Fall Mountain Biking is in great shape. Today 11-5 we have a trace of snow on the ground. Trails are moist and in the shade covered in snow. The bike park is open for peddle power with snow still on most trails at 11am.

All Inyo Forest Trails are open and in prime shape for a ride today. 

Hiking is still wide open, however there is 1-3 inches of snow starting at the 9000 foot level in the Lake Basin and in the Back Country.
