Summer is still in full swing up here in Mammoth, but days are getting shorter and we are seeing the signs of the boreal fall starting.
Local willows are now starting to turn yellow and we are seeing some of the younger Aspens starting to get some yellow leaves. Snowman get’s excited when he see’s these signs of fall beginning.
Weather Wise: This week we expect a cooling trend as low pressure off the PNW Coast spins a few short waves are way. Highs will be in the upper 70s today and drop to around 69 by Saturday here in town. Up in the lakes basin and around main lodge look for highs in the mid 60s by the weekend.
Lows at night should come down into the low 40s with some area’s this weekend into the mid to upper 30’s.
As the week goes on we should see winds pick up 15-30 MPH range out of the SW in town and 35-50+ MPH over the top of Mammoth Mountain. We expect mostly clear skis into Sunday with highs in town in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Opening Day of Snow Season: We are only 72 days away from Mammoth Mountains scheduled opener. Over the last 20 years they have never missed getting at least one run open for a pre scheduled opening day.
Make your plans now to ski the “WORD” on November 10th, 2016. Maybe we will get lucky and get the remnants of a hurricane in late October or Early November like we did last season.
Anyone remeber the remnants of hurricane Olaf that came in the first couple days of November last year?
So while we wait for winter to start come on up for some great late Summer and Early Fall fun. All summer sports and activities are still going on full right into the middle of September.
