Mammoth Snowman Storm Update 10-30-2017

Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

Free Hot Wax Footloose Sports10-30-17 10:00 AM – Good Monday morning from the Snowman. Yahoo the warming trend has ended and things are cooling of a bit this week.

The big news is the major change in the weather pattern starting late this week.

We are headed for some significant snowfall on Mammoth Mountain this weekend into early next week. Along with an extended period of cooler then normal temperatures, for an epic snowmaking run.

Confidence is now high in a change to cold and wet, and moderate that we get 1-3 feet of snow out of this first weekend system.

There is also a chance that we do get a more solid sub tropical hook up right over Mammoth Mountain for additional feet of snow on the ground.

Bottom line is we really need to wait 48-72 hours more to know with high confidence how much possible footage we will get. Models are still wavering a bit keep holding up to our first call amounts. 

Snow levels will start out around 8000 feet late Saturday/Sunday and drop to around 5,500 feet by Sunday. Yes new models are delaying the start of the system now making it a Sunday/Monday event.

Local roads will turn to R1 next weekend with chain controls possible down to the Sherwin Grade. Time to get your winter car kits set up and be ready to chain up and SLOW DOWN.

For the next few days expect a cooling trend with high clouds at times and light winds. Highs will be in the 50s on the hill and down into the 60s in town. Lows will be in the mid 30s at night. 

Stay tuned in here at MammothSnowman.com as we will be updating in the AM and PM daily now.

Have a great day and if you’re a local get your yard and car ready for winter NOW.  

Weather Images

Things to do while we wait for winter sports to start:

Fall colors are now past peak all over the Eastern Sierra. However there is still a ton of yellows out there to be seen during this warm October week. Old Mammoth, Mc Gee Creek, Crowley and June all have some left over colors to check out.

Fall Mountain Biking is in great shape, with last weeks 1-3 inches we have moist trails with a bit of snow out in the Bike Park. Remeber the Bike Park is closed so no lift access. 

All Inyo Forest Trails are open and in prime shape for a ride. 

Hiking is still wide open, however there is mixed snow and dirt starting at the 9000 foot level in the Lake Basin and in the Back Country.

Also to note Fishing has been going off this Fall here in Mammoth. Perfect time to come up and throw in a line before the snow and cold hits in 5 days.

For Local’s it’s time to wake up get your wood stacked and covered. Be ready a world in white is not far off. Feels like Summer today in 6 days it will feel like Christmas. Get ready NOW!

Mammoth Mountain Today – 11-16-2014

ski-renter-2014-coupon11-16-2014 – 12:28 PM UPDATED Snowmaking BelowThe window-cast from out on Mammoth Mountain shows a few high clouds with snowmaking cranking in the Main Lodge area.   Mammoth did pick up a trace of snow last night around midnight.   

Current Weather Conditions: Up top it’s 17 with a NE winds at 40 MPH gusting to 60 MPH.  At the Main Lodge it’s 18 with winds around SE to 12 MPH.  We have a 24 here at our studio at 8175 feet right below Canyon Lodge.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report:   For Day 3 on Mammoth Mountain, Broadway & Main Park have a good 12-20 inches of machine groomed man made packed powder along with some hard pack that softens up during the day. 

On Silver Tip to Main Park you will also find 10 jibs and one nice large jump, they also have some other cool features set up at this time.   Please watch for rocks and bare spots and stay on Broadway and the Main Park runs only please.

Mammoth Mountain Photo Shots & Snowmans Video Snow Report will return to action this Tuesday/Wednesday.  We will be having a couple video broadcasts & photo albums a week from out on Mammoth Mountain.

Mammoth Mountain Weather, Wind Forecast:  Today look for highs on the mountain in the 30s with night time lows thru the week in the mid 20s except for Monday night in the low 30s.   Winds will be northeast 15 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph today.  Winds will decrease and shift to the SW over the next few days. Chance of Snow Showers on Wednesday, but just a dusting at this time.

Snowmaking Conditions will be great 5 of the next 6 nights in the main lodge area.  Right now snowmaking is taking place on Broadway, Silver Tip, Main Park, Sesame Street, Andy’s Double Gold and Saddle Bowl.  As of this post Greg and his crew are grooming out all the snow they made Saturday on Andy’s Double Gold.

Here is a shot from Mammoth Mountain taken at noon today.  That is full on snowmaking for Saddel Bowl off of Chair 3.

Extended Weather Outlook:  By the end of the week we just might see some changes that will bring in some more accumulation snow out on Mammoth Mountain in the 6-10 day period.  So far the long range outlooks we look at have been flip flop from dry to wet and dry is winning out.  

However in time we do believe we will be getting a under cutting of that nasty west coast ridge for some nice bouts of sierra base snow this season.  There is a chance for some under cutting to happen before the big Thanksgiving weekend.  We would call it a 50/50 chance at this time.

Here is the GFS now thru November 24th, showing around a inch of water for Mammoth Mountain.  1 inch of water = about 10 inches of snow.

gfs_total_precip_west_33

Here is the Canadian Weather Model thru the 25thcmc_total_precip_cw_39Now finally the CFS and it still wants us to get wet.  The first image is now thru Thanksgiving showing 1-2 inches of water content and the second is the 45 day outlook showing 8-9 inches of water content coming in.

Over the last couple weeks the CFS as been showing 5-10 inches of QPF for the 45 day outlook.  Snowman is pray-in it comes thru for Mammoth Mountain and the entire Eastern Sierra.

cfs_tprecip_noram_2014111600_x41cfs_tprecip_noram_2014111600_t45Get The Mammoth Weather Guys Forecast Here

Thanksgiving Outlook:  As of now expect a few lifts out of the Main Lodge to be up and running on a base of man-made and natural snow.   In years past when we have had weather like we are having now they have been able to run chairs 1, 3, 6, 11 and G1 with about 15 or so runs open.   We will need a decent snowfall and some good snowmaking conditions to get the top via Cornice open and the chair 2 / mill area running. 

Canyon Lodge and Little Eagle Lodges:   Are closed until we get natural snow or until they can make snow in these areas.  At this point in time we estimate it will be mid December before these areas open for the new winter season.

9:45 AM – Currently on Mammoth Mountain we have clear skies with thick sub tropical moisture in place.

We also have light winds to 5 mph and temperatures are in the 60/70’s.

Let’s pray the forcasted storms bring in some heavy rains the next two days.  We have had off and on showers over the last week but still nothing has been soaking down into the dry dirt at this point.   The best part of the rain has been the washing away pollen and dust in the area.2014-07-18_0916Mountain Bike and Hiking trails are in great shape across the entire Mountain at this time.  The Bike Park is open from top to bottom….

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 3-24-2014

Mammoth Mountain Cam

3-24-2014 7AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we have spring conditions on the lower half of the hill, with winter wind pack and great groomers on the upper half of the ski area.

Mammoth Mountain Photos 3-19-2014

The base is around 50-70 inches from Main Lodge on up to the top. The snow is getting a bit firm up top with the days in the 40s and 50s over the weened.

We could use a refresher of new snow and it looks to be on the way this Tuesday night into early Thursday. Take a look at the QPF chart below, it shows 1 – 1.5 inces of water for the Mammoth Lakes and Mammoth Mountain Areas.

p120i12

Click for Full Size QPF Chart

Many times those QPF forecasts are a bit low for Mammoth, with this system it does look like we could see a good 12-18 inches over the upper powderfields of Mammoth Mountain Tuesday night into Early Thursday.

This will be a much needed refresh back to winter conditions. Please remember it’s now spring so the sun is high in the sky.

You want to get up here for the powder & packed powder on Wednesday since it will not last long once the sun it out. Weather Guy will have a update late on Tuesday so check this link at that time for the last update on the new storm and more to come after that.

For Monday into Tuesday the best skiing and riding at this time is up top on Cornice early and on the chairs 3 and 5 on the groomers. Best bet is to keep riding out of the main lodge area until Canyon gets a refresh on Wednesday.

The Canyon are is firm early and full on spring mush by 11am. I would avoid the Little Eagle area at this time, it’s very melted out and not the best experience right now.

If you want to save big on lift tickets check out the packages you can now get right from MammothSnowman.com and Liftopia.

Looking WAY ahead to Next Season the MVP goes on sale this week, drought or deluge it’s still a great deal. Got to be impressed with the effort that was made with snowmaking this season!

The Early Forecast for next season does show a rather strong El Nino event. It’s all ready starting to form. At this point winds that forecasters look at are stronger then in spring 1997 when the last so called supper El Nino formed and brought the entire state a big winter. All I know is I am getting a season pass for next season! ______________________

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report – 10-14-2013

Mammoth Mountain Web Cam

10-14-2013 9:00 AM – Current snow conditions at Canyon Lodge & Main Lodges, we picked up 1 inch of light snow on Sunday Morning.

So that brings us to 4 snowfalls in October. It’s not adding up to any base, but at least something is getting in here.

I think it’s a sign of good things to come this Winter.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report – 10-14-2013 – 7:43 AM

Current Base: There is no base, just spots that have accumulated a bit snow we have picked up over the last 3 weeks. Areas that get a lot of sun are melted off fast.

Canyon Lodge = Moist Dirt to a Dusting, Main Lodge = 0-2 inches, MC Coy Station = 0-3 inches, Top = 0-3 inches

Ski area crews have been working hard to get the mountain ready for the upcoming ski season. We should be seeing snowmaking equipment coming out in a week or so with snowmaking planned anytime after October 21st in a normal year.

Update Tuesday 8:32am

IMG_79519-3-2013 8AM -With Labor Day behind us it’s now time to enjoy Fall and the change over from Fall colors to the white stuff.

I don’t know about you but this is a very exciting time. Fall is a great time to visit before it snows and take in some cooler and get a killer bike ride or hike in.

Up on Mammoth Mountain crews are getting ready for the upcoming season and the Kamikaze bike game that start on Wednesday.

There are some image below of the new snow making line they are installing off the face of 5 to the Half Pipe near the top of Chair 4.

Snowman will be out on a hill a couple times a week checking out whats going on and reporting it here at the web site right up until opening day.

Signs of Fall, some of the Aspens in the local area are getting some Yellow leaves. Expect the colors to start turning hard in about 3 weeks. We have a Fall Colors Report page here if your interested.

Here in Mammoth Lakes, we have seen a few signs of a normal to above normal winter. One sign is we have very Large Fir Pine Cones. They are so big that they are stressing out the branches they are on. These cones are also dropping lot’s of sap. More then I have ever seen. Snowman posted a early winter outlook about a month ago, next update on that page around the 21st of the month.

Main Lodge Web Cam8-5-2013 9AM – Hello and thanks for stopping by www.mammothsnowman.com.

The dog days of summer are upon us here on Mammoth Mountain.

Over the last two weeks we have been dealing with the Aspen Fire.  Mammoth Mountain and Mammoth Lakes has seen some very heavy smoke at times.

Smoke or not, many our still out on the hill riding downhill in the Mountain Bike Park.  In the AM when some of the smoke clears out we have been out riding cross country and hills.  Still the smoke as been a major pain and it will good to get it out of the area.

The mountain biking will be EPIC once again as soon as smoke is gone, hopefully by the end of this week. Remember Mammoth Mountain holds a Downhill Race every Thursday at 5pm.

Looking ahead to Winter and Snow Days, the Ski Area plans to open on November 7th weather permitting.  Let’s pray those big fat pine cones I see in Mammoth are a sign of a big winter to come.  🙂  Ya right….

Mammoth Mountain Bikers: you need to use caution with all this smoke.  Downhill is no issue, it’s cross county and climbing that can mess you up in the smoke.  Best time to ride is between the 7 – 9am hours.   Most of the smoke should be out of here by next weekend.  🙂  

Weather, highs will be in the 75-80 with lows around 50 with a cooling trend by midweek. Winds in the area 5 – 15 from the SW after lunch time.  Get full weather details at our Mammoth Mountain Weather web site.

Here at the web site we will adding video reports back every M-W-F by 5pm, starting on Monday. We are currently looking for a Video Report Sponsor – we have over 137,505 households that check us out … get more information here.

Main Lodge Web Cam8-4-2013 4PM – Hello and thanks for stopping by www.mammothsnowman.com.

The Dog days of summer are upon us, up here on Mammoth Mountain, it’s time to start thinking about getting in shape for next winter.

Snowman is feeling like we are going to get some nice dumpage thru the whole winter this time around.

Let’s pray those big fat pine cones are a sign. One thing that does concern me is talk of a weak El Nino, in most cases that is not good for a 500 inch winter.

Mammoth Mountains Best Weather and Snow Report

Face of Chair 5 Mammoth MountainMammoth Mountain’s Best Weather here http://mammothmountainweatherguy.com and  Mammoth Mountains Best Snow Report Here.

Hello from Mammoth Mountain. Snowman here with you on a great Tuesday.

Mammoth Mountain has a 2-5 foot base with 6-10 inches of soft powder and packed powder on Top.

Conditions are perfect right now and should be great for the Presidents Day weekend coming up.

On Monday we hit the hill at 8:30 am and found about 4-5 inches of fresh snow over at the chair 15 parking lot. Snow was still falling at that time. Once on the hill we found a solid 6-12 inches of snow as we toured from 15 to main and back again over a 3 hour period.

The best stuff on Monday was at chairs 3, 5, 22 and 25. Those lifts served up the goods as the top stayed closed on Monday, 14 and Hemlocks was also closed.

Coverage was not bad but I would avoid charging in this stuff. To many rocks lurking just under the surface. The new snow was light, but had some graupel mixed in so it had some constancy to it. That will help it to hold up for great skiing and riding for the next couple weeks;

Snowman’s’ Unofficial Locals Mammoth Mountain Snow Report

Weather Today is going to be cloudy and cold with snow showers. Possible clearing during the day would leads to the whole mountain opening up and a fresh powder fest up top and over in the chair 14 area.

A new snow showery winter system is setting up for Wednesday. Little accumulation today, but a chance for 3-6 inches on Wednesday. Full MM Weather Discussion and a Powder Forecast can be found here.

Wind Cast Winds have gusted up to 60 out of the South at times this am over the top of Mammoth Mountain. More of the same today and them SW winds tonight.

Base a this time we have a 2-5 foot base of packed powder and powder snow from 7900 up to 11,000 feet. This is not enough snow to cover all the rocks, trees and stumps that are normally buried by mid season. **Believe it or not we have enough base to have a great vacation in Mammoth at this time. Snowman would make the 6 hour drive weekly for these conditions for sure.

Lifts all lifts expect chair 20 are open wind and weather permitting.

Grooming = 679 acres of groomed bliss out there today.
