Snowman Report – 11-6-2018

Black Tie Ski Rentals in Mammoth Lakes - Discount Coupon11-6-2018 – 7 AM- Good morning from Mammoth Lakes, we have clear skies at this time.

Snowmaking is back on this morning, they with temps in the mid-3o’s right now so we must have a favorable wet bub or the temp gauge at Main are off. 

Looking at the snowmaking forecast for the next few days things are going heading in the right direction with snowmaking possible nightly.

It will be marginal tonight but way more effective as we move into Wednesday night into the weekend.  

Today’s Mammoth Mountain weather forecast is calling for a high in the low 50s at Main Lodge, moving into the 40s Wednesday into Sunday.  Night time lows will be in the low 30’s to upper 20’s so they will be able to make snow each night. 

Winds the next few days will be 10-20 MPH out of the SW, gusts over the top could reach 25 MPH. 

Looking towards the opener on Thursday, expect conditions to be thin with just a narrow strip down Broadway open.

The good news is with nightly snowmaking they will get Broadway covered fast. Next up is to get some snow in the lower park and get some features set up. After that, they will move on to linking Andys Double Gold.

Looking at the long-range outlooks there are no storms in the 6-10 day forecast at this time. Just conditions favorable for fair to good snowmaking during the nights.

If your planning to come up for Thanksgiving skiing will be out of Main Lodge with the limited terrain. Could be a multi-sports Holiday if it stays dry.  

Have a great day, Snowman will be updating you Monday – Friday now by 9 AM. I will have our first Snow Report this Thursday afternoon.
