9-1-2015 – 6:07AM – Hello from Mammoth Mountain.
We continue to have off and on smoke outs here on the Mountain.
The smoke is coming from the Rough fire that has now been burning for a month.
If your planning on coming up to Mammoth the worst of the smoke is in the Bishop area and the Bishop High County. As winds come of the SW to S the smoke then moves up into the Mammoth Area.
Looking around the area for signs of Fall we are seeing many of the aspens starting to get some yellow leaves. However with that said most Aspens are still fully green with no sign of change.
All the local willow’s already went yellow and are going format for the fall. They did get attacked by a fungus this year so that is not a sign of anything.
Mammoth Mountain Forecast: Highs will be in the 60s at Main Lodge and close to 70 at Canyon Lodge today, with 50s up top, expect lows in the 40’s on the mountain.
Winds will be SW today with wind speeds above 9000 feet @ 15-35 MPH at times. For a complete weather outlook check out our mammoth mountain weather section.
We now have just 73 days now until Mammoth Mountain is scheduled to open via snowmaking on Broadway. Maybe we will get lucky and a early season storm will hit us in October, we are due for one of those events.
If you look back to the El Nino’s of 82-93 and 97-98 the opening day in 83 was on Halloween and in the Fall of 1997 was November 7th.

8-31-2015 @ 7AM – It’s a awesome Monday morning here in Mammoth Lakes under clear blue skies in town and over Mammoth Mountain and the Lakes Basin. You can see the smoke to the south of us at this time.
Mammoth Mountain Report: Feels like summer is on the way out and fall is on the way in. If your into mountain biking the next 6-9 weeks on the mountain will be prime time fun. The trails are in great shape and the mid summer crowds are gone.
Starting a week from Tuesday the park will not offer lift access Monday – Thursday. That means you can get out and ride cross country without a lift pass. Use that time to get in shape for the upcoming winter season.
As of now the Mountain Bike Park is running 7 days a week and is 100% opened with lift access via Gondola 1 & 2, Chair 11, Chair 2 on weekends, the Chair 2 bike shuttle and the Village Bike Shuttle.
The Ski area is also open for scenic gondola rides to the top of the mountain. The adventure center is also open with tons of fun for the family right in the Mammoth Mountain Inn area.
If your into Downhill Mountain Bike Racing the Village Downhill Mountain Bike Series continues on Friday. Sign ups are at 4PM at the Adventure Center and the Race starts at 5pm.
