Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 4-15-2018

Sunday at 9 AM UPDATED – Good morning we have high clouds in the area with winds 15-25 MPH out of the SW on the lower mountain.

Up top winds are gusting to 50 and it’s 22 with firm snow pack conditions.  

Highs will be in the 40s today with lows in the 20s. Expect increasing clouds and winds today leading to snowfall tonight into Monday night. We might even see a few snowflakes in time for the pond skim today. 

Current Snow Conditions: Snowman was out on a Saturday, spent the whole morning on chair 9. Half the snow was some real fun corn and the other half was still converting over and was real slow when we hit noon.

Tons of fun over on 9 for it’s last weekend of operation. Up top you could see it was still winter conditions with a mix of firm, wind buff and ice.

This will be the last weekend for Canyon Lodge and Eagle with them closing today. If you’re into the pond skim that goes down after lunch to the first 50 people to sign up.

Starting next week we will be skiing out of Main Lodge, I would expect lifts to be running mid week will be: 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 23 and G1 and G2. If there is enough people out they can also run 4, 5, 10, 12, 13 and 14 on the weekends.

Weather wise we expect snow tonight with snow showers into Monday night.

9 AM – Looking at the model run that just came in it has just over an inch of water for the Powder Fields of Mammoth. At 15-1 that could add up to 10-15 inches of fresh snow for the Main Lodge area.

So Riders of the Storm we will see you at the Mill on Monday morning. Bluebird lovers Tuesday will be your day.

Hint if you’re skiing in spring snow leave your winter groomers skis at home, they are never going to be much fun in the slush, get a pair of wide rocker skis and you will be having a blast.

A lot of you are asking how long the ski area will run, we have a 10 foot solid base at MC Coy, so mid June to July 4th depending on how warm it gets this spring. You know the mountain wants to go to July 4th to keep the streak alive.
