4-23-2014 7AM – Snowman here with you, the ski area is still open with skiing and riding out of Main Lodge only.
The base at 9000 feet is 15-25 inches with 40-60 inches of snow on the upper mountain. There are some bare spots showing on the lower part of chair 2 so use caution and slow down.
Canyon and Eagle are done for the season, they closed just in time as things melted out the last few days.
Conditions out on the hill have been full on spring conditions top to bottom. However we have a large winter type storm moving towards Mammoth, It should hit Friday morning and we could see 12-18 inches of fresh above MC Coy Station in the Powder Fields of Mammoth Mountain.
If your looking for a final shot of powder this April it’s time to pack up and com on up Thursday night. Weather Guy is telling me that Friday PM should be a fun session out of the Main Lodge area.
Please take note that the ski area is at what I call low tide, so if your coming up to ride powder make sure you know it’s not dirt under that fresh stuff. Yes there are some bare sports out on the hill.
If your looking for more weather, the Weather Guy has a detailed report posted at this link here.

Looking way ahead… 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! … “By Steve Taylor” the Snowman…
