Snowfall History – Mammoth Mountain
Massive snowfall over Mammoth Mountain leads to long ski seasons.
Many of our storms especially the early ones offer heavy wet base snow. This type of snow allows the ski area to quickly open up a lot of terrain in the later parts of the Fall.
A couple of years ago I was skiing on the third Tuesday of November and I was walking over dirt to get to the 3 trails open. 2 days later we had a 5 foot solid base of wind buff and you could ski off the top.
Many Mammoth Mountain riders will remember the 5-6 foot base we had over the top on an October 21st opening day, that was back in 2004.
