6-11-2019 – Mammoth Mountain Snow Report from the Snowman

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report

6-11-2019 – Currently, we are skiing and riding on some great corn snow. You will find some nice soft carvable snow on the groomers on Chair 2 starting right out of the gate at 7:30 AM.

All the other runs are quickly getting soft now as the sun is high in the sky as we approach Summer.

Up top Cornice is getting groomed just about nightly and it’s the first to get soft up top. Scotties is also groomed and offers up some fun warm-up laps in the am.

As the day heats up any run off the groomed that is getting some skier or boarder traffic has some really good snow as it gets turned up.

Top of the Drop Outs are great, watch out on the lower half later in the am as it gets a bit sticky.

West Bowl has some bumps that are getting bigger by the day now. The bumps in here are best to ski after 11 AM.

To keep the snow in better shape grooming crews are also doing there salting, keeping the snow surface less slushy and not grabby.

The race runs are getting an extra dose of salting so the ski teams that are training have a nice firm surface to ski on for a few hours early morning.

Around 10:30 to 11 AM they pull the closures on those runs and the snow is just about perfect.  You will find a nice thin layer of silver lined corn snow with a carvable but not to firm surface below.

The base out on the hill is around 6-18 feet from what we are observing. With the warm weather, we have had the snowpack drop a couple of feet the last week.  All that May snow is about gone as we see a lot of the early May Spring base starting to appear. 

Lift hours are now locked in at 7:30 AM to 2 PM with Chairs 1, 2, 3, 6, 11 and 23 open daily.  The lower gondola is also open with the upper gondola closed until mid-June for maintenance.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 

Mammoth Snowman Report 10-20-2017 9 AM

Welcome to MammothSnowman.com

Free Hot Wax Footloose Sports10-20-17 9 AM  – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, 19 days to go before the ski area opens.

Snowman feels so excited I hope you do too.

At this time we have snow falling in the area, with snow down to 8000 feet at this time.

Checking on snow totals I have 1-2 inches here at my cabin at 8200 feet. 2-3 Inches up at Main and more up top.

The snow is a nice thick heavy wet base snow, just what we need to get some moisture back into the ground.

Mc Coy Station Cam Mammoth MountainWeather Update from 10-20:

The storm we have waited over two weeks for is here and it’s right on track to bring us 3-6 inches of heavy wet base snow. This mess will be out of here later today and then we are heading for a major October warm up.

For today expect a highs in the 30s on the hill with highs in the 40s on Friday. Lows will be into the upper 20s tonight. 

Winds today are gusting to 35 in town with gust to 50+ over the ski area. 

Look for warming this weekend with highs in the low 60s on the hill by Sunday and mid 60s by mid week. Here in town we could see high in the 70s next week. 

Beyond that time frame we expect things to cool off as the MJO moves into Phase 6. Looks like the next chance for snow is about 10-14 days out.

Here is todays CFSv2 outlook for November, it shows a nice wet month. Confidence in that outlook is about a 3, we will keep watching and update you daily now. 

Opening day for Winter Sports on Mammoth Mountain is November 9th, 2017. Snowmaking crews should start to come on board for set up and training around the 21st of October.

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

For a fall colors drive Rock Creek Canyon has peaked up high but is still good lower down and mid way up. The June Lake Loop is all full of Color as is Crowley Lake and Old Mammoth. 

Fall Mountain Biking is a ton of fun and it’s all based on peddle power. You can still ride the Bike Park just watch for crews getting ready for winter.

All Inyo Forest Trails are open and in prime shape for a ride.  Nothing like a ride with perfect fall weather. Rock Creek Canyon is also perfect now and there are a ton of fall colors.

Hiking is still wide open, most of the snow that fell 9/21 has melted now so it’s much easier to get around. Try the Sherwin Lakes Hike for a bit of color or a hike around Convict Lake will also offer up a colorful experience.

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.

Mammoth Mountain Photo Shots: click here for Snowmaking Photos from 11-2-2014 taken at 9am.  We will have more photos posted in the next few days.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 3-29-2014

3-29-2014 7:45AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we have a Winter Storm Warning posted from late today thru the night time hours.

As of 7am at Main Lodge we have winds to 40 mph with a temperature of 28, up at 11,053 feet winds are peaking at 70 mph with a temperature of 21.

Chairs 9, 12, 22, 23 and 25 are on wind hold at this time.  I would expect more to be added to the list by 8am….

Tonight’s storm could bring 7-10 inches in town and a good 12-18+ inches from Main Lodge on up to the top of Mammoth Mountain.  Sunday is looking to clear out fast for a epic spring powder day.

By Monday the next powder event is on the way with snow by late in the day and into Tuesday.  That snow should be some nice and light powder.  Some forecasts show the snow as light as 20-1.  Amounts could be in the 12-24+ inch range for some epic powder skiing and riding!

If you want a taste of some powder today is the time to pack the car and drive up.  I would plan on staying thru Wednesday for epic powder skiing and riding. If you need lodging your can book it right here at MammothSnowman.com, use our Mammoth Lakes Lodging link.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 3-24-2014

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.

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 your looking for Discount Ski Rentals in Mammoth Lakes try out the Ski Renter here in town by the Shell Station. If your into Snowboarding, Wave Rave can take care of you with Rentals and Plenty of New Gear on Sale.

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! ______________________

Snowmaking Update

ptz.cgi10-23-2013 7:06 AM – Hello and welcome to MammothSnowman.com.

SNOW-MAKING WAS ON Early this Morning!

You read that right, snowmaking operations cranked up for a few hours last night. Looks a bit weak at this point, but this is how it all begins.

Expect a few hours of snowmaking again over the next few nights. By Monday and Tuesday much cooler air will be in the area for the first significant snowmaking run.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low to mid 30s at the Main Lodge.

Perfect timing next week with the cold air as we will be out filming our first Video Snow Report of the Season. This years video snow report series will come out online on late Wednesday afternoons and the Outside TV version on Thursday and Fridays.

At this point we are just 15 days until the scheduled opener here at the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 1-24-2013 1:43PM

1-24-2013 – 2:16PM We have about 5-10 Inches of new heavy wet fresh snow out on Mammoth Mountain at this time.

This morning we found everything from powder, heavy powder and a few dust on crust section’s over on chair 22.

The steep runs over by main seemed to have less of the dust on crust effect.  The Runs off of Chairs 3, 5 and Gold Hill had some of the best snow we got to sample this morning.

As of this post, the snow has stopped for now, but we could see some more showers later today.  Looks like there is a good chance the top will not be touched until the morning.

Should be a great weekend out on the hill with windy conditions on Saturday and a few snow showers on Sunday.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 1-24-2013 6:32 AM

1-24-2013 – 6:32AM – Good Thursday to You from the slopes of Mammoth Mountain.

Snow Report & Conditions: We picked up about 3-6 inches of heavier base snow last night and we still have moderate snow falling at time this morning. This new snow should mold well with the current base we think.

Snowman will be out first thing to check it out. Look for a Mammoth Mountain Video Snow Report to be posted later today.

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.
