Mammoth Mountain Snow Report from the Snowman

4-7-24 – Mid Winter conditions continue with below average temperatures and 20-30 inches of fresh snow from the Thursday / Friday storm system. On Saturday all the powder that was left over got skied out and by the afternoon there was some sugar snow blowing all around on a mostly packed out surface.

For the next 2-3 days temperatures will stay below average with NE winds kicking in for Monday and Tuesday. That will keep snow conditions on the mid and upper mountain in perfect mid winter shape. Lower mountain runs should start to see some spring snow in areas that get direct sun by Monday mid day if not today.

By Wednesday the NE winds mostly die off and temperatures warm up big time so expect the spring snow line to go up to at least the mid mountain. The wind flow later in the week will determine if the top ever turns to spring or just firms up into a hard wind buff surface.

This mornings weather data shows a new low moving in now for later Friday into next weekend. If that pans out the Mountain will see more snow showers with winter conditions returning. QPF amounts are on the lower side so we could be looking at some low end freshies mixed in with dust on crust. I will keep you all updated this week and what might happen.

Enjoy the great conditions on the hill this week, this has been one heck of a come back year for Mammoth, Yahoo.

Many people are asking about Closing Day at Little Eagle and Canyon Lodges. This season, the last day for lifts has been moved up to April 21st. The Pond Skim is still set for Sunday April 14th at Canyon Lodge. Closing Day for the Main Lodge and MC Coy Stations lifts is now set for Memorial Day. (Snow pack wise there should be plenty of snow to extend into June if they choose too.)

Also take note that the replacement of Chair 1 Project is now expected to start on Monday, April 15th. That means Chair 1 will close for the season and be removed to make way for the new lift which is scheduled to open around Thanksgiving 2024.

This spring, you will need to ride the Gondola or chairs 6 or 11 to leave the Main Lodge area. No word on how long chairs 12, 13, and 14 will stay open. Chairs 2 and 4 and the Mill will run as long as there is enough snow to ski down to the bottom.

Mammoth Mountain & Mammoth Lakes Shuttle Service: All winter shuttle routes will remain open through April 21st, and then the Spring Schedules will begin at that time. Here is a link to all the Shuttle Information you need for the rest of winter and the upcoming spring season.

Mammoth Mountain Resort Snow Conditions:

The Mammoth Snowman and Crew bring you the snow conditions at the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, from a local’s point of view. Log on daily to get our fresh morning updates on the current snow conditions. We let you know if the snow is packed powder, powder, firm, or soft. There are on-hill reports from the Top, the Groomers, the East Bowl, Lincoln Mountain, and the Paranoids.

You will also find the current snow depths at the Main Lodge, The Summit at 11,053 feet, Canyon Lodge, and the Little Eagle lodge area. Last but not least you will find what lifts are scheduled to run and what lifts could be on Weather Hold and what the hours of operations our.

Make sure to read our on-mountain trip reports that get posted a couple of days a week with current on-mountain photos and our own Mammoth Snowman Video Snow Report from the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area. When you read our content is the real deal from real people that have been on the hill that day.

Disclaimer on Snow Conditions and our Snow Reports

This is a simple disclaimer to keep us legal. First, this website is run by Mammoth Locals, we are not employees of Mammoth Mountain, but yes they do support our efforts.

Second, Snow Conditions change by the hour, so when you read our posts please consider when the post or report was made.

Check the date on the report before you email us! Nothing worse than some crybaby complaining that our conditions are not right. Yep, I get emails like that, again read the date, and don’t be a jerk.

Please Remember that the longer time has passed, the more the conditions have changed.

Third, what Snowman or any other member of the community posts is purely based on how that person views snow conditions.

Everyone looks at things in their own view, so one person’s epic might not be your epic day. For example, I love spring corn snow but many people hate it.

Fourth you can die skiing or snowboarding, if you’re not skilled don’t take the runs Snowman or somebody else in the community might suggest. 

Many of our videos contain extreme footage by professional athletes that ski and ride full time. We do not endorse these activities and encourage you not to try the tricks and extreme moves the professionals make in our videos and or images.

If you do, you do so of your own accord and risk and you further understand you risk almost certain death at times!

And last but not least thanks to the State of California you must be 18 or older to use this website. 

If you’re not 18 log off now or we will have to call your parents to shut you down. 🙂
