Monday AM Update from the Snowman

4-8-2019 7 AM – Good morning everyone, we have thick high clouds over Mammoth at this time. 

Today expect pt cloudy skies with highs again in the 40’s and SW winds 20-30 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH over the mid and upper elevations.

The rest of the week will be highlighted with much cooler temperatures with periods of rain and snow possible.

Snowfall amounts will be on the light side with 3-6 inches of additional snowfall forecast for the week.

For tonight expect rain and snow with the snow level around 9000 feet, looks like just a dusting to an inch of snowfall.

Tuesday expect snow likely with 1-3 inches possible and high in the 30s. Winds will be gusting to 50 MPH over the higher elevations. Snow levels will be 7500-8000 feet.

At this time Wednesday is looking like a sunny spring day with more snow showers possible Thursday into Friday.

The weekend outlook is calling for clear skies with highs in the mid-40s to mid-50s with light winds. 

Overall it now appears that this never-ending storm train is slowly coming to an end.

As we move into mid-April expect more spring days with some nice corn snow starting to set up.

On clear days Spring Skiing and Riding is on, make sure you have your gear waxed up so you do not bog down as the snow turns slushy on warm days. Footloose has you covered with a FREE Hot Wax… Get the Coupon at this link. 

Climax on Sunday Afternoon

Snow Conditions:  4-8-2019 – Same old story on snow conditions, it’s spring on the lower mountain with the mid and upper mountain still in winter snowpack. 

Up Top Cornice and Scotties should be the call if you like steeper groomers to start your day.

The rest of the top is a mostly a flat packed out snow surface mixed in with a  few bumps. There is a mix of some firmer wind buff and some nice packed powder snow.

The faces of 3 and 5 are a blast right now with packed powder snow, you can pick any line you want to take.

Over on 22 and 25, you will find a mix of winter and spring. The groomers on 25 got to be full on spring fun by 9 am over the weekend.  Anytime the sun is out 9, 15 and 25 should slush up fast.

Right now the line between spring and winter is right around MC Coy Station. 

FYI: The Ski Area will be open at least thru July 7th this season, make plans to get some Spring and Summer turns in.

Canyon Lodge and Eagle Lodges will be open until April 28th, after that all lifts will be running out of Main Lodge.

Demo The Mind Bender at Footloose Sports


k2 99 Ti Mind Bender Skis – You can Demo them at Footloose Sports here in Town. 

The new skis from K2 Blow my mind I guess that is why they call them Mind Benders.

I have now taken these ski’s all over the hill the last 10 weeks. From groomers, to wind buff steeps to steep cut up powder crud I have been flying all over the hill feeling like I am in my mid 30’s again.

My advice is to pick some demos from Footloose and give these a try out for a day. 760-934-2400
