Mammoth Mountain Recreational Weather & Travel Forecast

4-4-2024 @  11 AM – Good morning; a deep cold low-pressure system has moved into the area at this time. The main frontal band with this low will be over Mammoth Mountain later this afternoon into the evening hours.

Snowfall Forecast amounts are now in the 1-2 foot range from Main Lodge to the top. Snowfall ratios will be in the 10-1 range today and then up to 12-1 tonight.

The stronger winds will somewhat limit the snowfall potential, so it’s going to be hard to reach the 2 feet of new snow we see in some of the forecasts right now.

Snow showers look to be in the area well into Friday and then pt cloudy to sunny skies are expected over the weekend with continued cooler air that will keep the snow in mid-winter form over most of the Mountain. SW Winds will continue to be in the strong to moderate range well into Saturday.

Next week, a weak ridge will move into the west, and that will bring on Spring temperatures and the corn snow season. No signs of any powder chances after this system, but the outlook could change quickly as we are in the spring season now. All forecasts beyond day 7 are a bit suspect now, for sure.

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 in 2004 with Video & Photo Blog reports. (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 and Bishop, along with KTLA, AP, Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC News.
