Mammoth Mountain Snowman Report

8-22-2017 – 6AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain. 

We are now in the process of doing a total web site rebuild. Everything should be tuned up and working in responsive mode in the next couple days.

Last week Snowman reviewed over 150 videos from the last 14 years. I picked the best 50 and have them posted up on our updated Mammoth Mountain Video page.

The photo section here at the web site is getting updated as well so you have access to all our past galleries.

This years images got posted in blog posts, so Snowman is going month by month and creating a page with images from each month.

Here is the link to last October’s first snowfall images. That page also links up to last November and December. We will have the rest of last years images posted up in a day or two.

I have been out on the hill daily hiking around and enjoying the cool air on Mammoth Mountain. Crews are working hard on keeping the mountain bike park in great shape. 

Crews are also working hard to get the lifts serviced and ready for the next winter season. Opening day for next season is now just 79 days away, that is November 9th, 2017.

Who knows we might even open earlier then that if we get a wet October.

As far as the snow goes, You can still ski cornice if your in for a hike. There is also a ton of snow still in Gremlins Gulch and half way down St Anton. 

Snowman plans to hike up and ski on September 1st. We will have a fun video of that adventure. If you want to tag along let us know. 

Mammoth Snowman Snow Stoke and Snowman Report VideosThe Mountain Bike Park is 100% open with top to bottom riding now. G1 and G2 are open from 9am to 5PM for Mountain Biking and Scenic rides. Also to note chairs 2 and 16 are open for bikers 10 AM – 4PM Friday – Sunday this month. 

The bike park trails are in really great shape, however the dust is coming back after a week of dry weather.

Weather wise highs this week are expected in the 60s to low 70s in the park with winds 5-10 MPH. We do have a 50% chance of T Storms today Tuesday and then 30% on Wednesday. Things dry out for the weekend.

Just 9 days now until the boreal Fall starts, get ready for some epic Fall colors in about a month from now.
