Mammoth Snowman Report 5-22-2017

5-22-2017 – 6:54 AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we currently have clear skies.

Weather conditions for this week and right into the Memorial Day weekend should see highs in the 50s with lows in the upper 30s to low 40s at night.

For today and Tuesday we will add in a light NE winds flow. That will keep the snow in great condition a bit longer then normal for this time of year.

By Wednesday we get back to the SW wind flows with winds 10- 15 MPH at times.

Snow conditions are now full on spring conditions and should stay that way for the next 6-10 days before we get a bit of a cool down.

We have new hours of operation, lifts will run from 7:30 AM to 3 PM now. If you like the firm carvable groomers get out at 7:30 AM.

For the softer snow follow the sun by starting out on the runs off of chair 2. Then work over to the chair 1 area and then up to the face of 3 and then the Cornice Bowl. Things start to get soft on Stump right at 8 am at this point.

Lifts running this week (weather permitting) will be chairs 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 23 and G1 and G2. More lifts will run over the holiday weekend like 5, 10, 12, 13, and 14. Rumors are out there that more may open.

We will confirm with Mammoth Mountain later today on what the plan is and let you know.

There is still a base of 140-290+ inches out on the hill. That base will allow the Mountain to remain open thru August at this point. You should be able to ski down to Main Lodge into mid July with Stump Alley possibly open into the July 4th weekend.

Once the snow melts out of Main they will offer skiing and snowboarding from Mc Coy Station to the top of Mammoth. When your down for the day you will download on G1.

Snowman will be out to get a fresh video report today into Tuesday, along with a fresh photo snow report. Check back this week for the full details of what it looks like out on the hill.

We hope to see you here for the Memorial Day weekend celebrations. Ski ya later, Snowman out.

 

Site Update: Here at MammothSnowman.com and our sister site DiscoverMammoth.com we will keep you update year round of what conditions and weather our like. We are going to also be bringing back our Discover Mammoth Today videos reports twice a week.
