Looking at the images from yesterday Mammoth Mountain sure is looking good for late October.
You have to be excited that there is a decent base to start the season and that we get to open in October, been a long time since that happened.
The next good snowfall will seal in the deal on the winter season here in Mammoth. I hope You’re getting excited about opening day and the upcoming winter.
The next 5 days look to be perfect to get outside for a snowshoe adventure or even some cross-country skiing in the high country. Starting Friday you can add in some great skiing and snowboarding to the mix.
Lower elevations will be great for a hike or a bike ride as the snow line is at around 7800 feet now. The land has been refreshed get outside and soak up all the positive energy. 🙂
Weather Forecast: Expect clear skies and warming temperatures this week into next weekend. No rain and snow in sight through Sunday now. Highs for Mammoth Mountain at 9000 feet will be in the low to mid-40s for the opener and through the weekend. Nighttime lows look to be in the upper 20s to low 30s.

Author – Steve Taylor – The Mammoth Snowman – Over the last 30+ years, Snowman has spent countless hours studying and learning about Mammoth Mountain Weather and Snow Conditions first hand. He has been skiing around the hill with marked ski poles since March of 1991 so he can measure the fresh snowfall amounts out on the hill.
Snowman started blogging this information back in 1990 on the old Mammoth BBS system, then the RSN Forums and then on to MammothSnowman.com in 2004 with Video & Photo Blog report. (No YouTube back then). Facebook got added to the fold back in 2008 and then the Facebook Group in 2016.
Reports, videos, and photos from the website have been featured on both local TV Stations here in Mammoth, along with AP, Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC News.
