Mammoth Mountain Snow Report
6-11-2019 – Currently, we are skiing and riding on some great corn snow. You will find some nice soft carvable snow on the groomers on Chair 2 starting right out of the gate at 7:30 AM.
All the other runs are quickly getting soft now as the sun is high in the sky as we approach Summer.
Up top Cornice is getting groomed just about nightly and it’s the first to get soft up top. Scotties is also groomed and offers up some fun warm-up laps in the am.
As the day heats up any run off the groomed that is getting some skier or boarder traffic has some really good snow as it gets turned up.
Top of the Drop Outs are great, watch out on the lower half later in the am as it gets a bit sticky.
West Bowl has some bumps that are getting bigger by the day now. The bumps in here are best to ski after 11 AM.
To keep the snow in better shape grooming crews are also doing there salting, keeping the snow surface less slushy and not grabby.
The race runs are getting an extra dose of salting so the ski teams that are training have a nice firm surface to ski on for a few hours early morning.
Around 10:30 to 11 AM they pull the closures on those runs and the snow is just about perfect. You will find a nice thin layer of silver lined corn snow with a carvable but not to firm surface below.
The base out on the hill is around 6-18 feet from what we are observing. With the warm weather, we have had the snowpack drop a couple of feet the last week. All that May snow is about gone as we see a lot of the early May Spring base starting to appear.
Lift hours are now locked in at 7:30 AM to 2 PM with Chairs 1, 2, 3, 6, 11 and 23 open daily. The lower gondola is also open with the upper gondola closed until mid-June for maintenance.
