Hello this is the Snowman with your local’s snow report for Mammoth Mountain on Thursday morning March 31st, 2022
Look for spring conditions to develop Mountain wide today. I would expect the snow to become slow by 12-1 pm on the lower runs and mid-mountain groomers, as the process of converting over to spring is just starting.
Of the groomed, all that fresh powder is now in transition and needs to pack out and turn over to spring. I really have no idea what to expect today and Friday for the runs off the groomed and off the top.
My advice is to check out Cornice and venture off the sides and see what the conditions are like before fully committing to the Drop Outs or Wipe Outs.
Local Tips: Best to ski out of Canyon or the Mill and avoid Eagle now. Too much of a slog to get back to Eagle, it’s a real leg burner after 1 PM.
If you’re looking to ski or ride the groomers expect a firm fast corduroy surface to start the morning. By 9 to 9:30 areas of the ski runs that get direct sun will start to spring up and should offer some nice smooth soft turns.
Also, it’s a MUST that you’re gear is waxed up daily during spring conditions or you’re going to bog hard as the day goes on. Most people who hate spring conditions have never learned how to prep their gear nightly.
My advice is to purchase all-purpose Hertel hot sauce, an iron scraper, and a buffer and do it yourself.
You can also take your gear to Fast Ski Sports and use our Free Hot Wax Coupon. If you still bog down have the crew at Fast Ski texture your skis for a better spring glide. They also have the tools you need to do it your self and they can show you how the process goes.
