It’s was a fun opening morning, everyone was in a happy snow mood ready to get some turns in.
Broadway was a ton of fun with a mix of firm snow with a bit of soft corduroy in spots. Coverage is thin so watch for obstacles.
Snowmaking continues to run full on nightly into the early morning hours. Snowmaking is taking place on Broadway, Rusty’s, Silver Tip, Andy’s Double Gold and one beginner run.
The forecast for snowmaking calls for good snowmaking conditions nightly over the next 3-4 days and then ok snowmaking conditions. For our weather forecast scroll down the page past today’s photos.

Mammoth Mountain Weather: Today’s Mammoth Mountain weather forecast is calling for a high in the 40s at Main Lodge with a low tonight in the mid to upper 20s. Sunday into Monday night cooler air moves for better snowmaking production.
Also to note we have some smoke in the area at this time, there is a fire south of Mammoth, when the wind is out of the SW this week we will be smoky at times.
Looking at the long-range outlooks there are no storms in the 6-10 day forecast at this time. Looking into the fantasy period of Thanksgiving week we see cold and snow showers moving into the area.
The Mammoth Weather Guy posted his first Powder Outlook of the Season, here is the link.
If your planning to come up for Thanksgiving, skiing will be out of Main Lodge with 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.
