The window cast shows clear blue skies at this time with NE winds over Mammoth Mountain.
For today we are expecting highs in the 50s around Main Lodge with 40s above the 10,000 foot level. Night time lows continue to be in the 20s.
Over the weekend we should see highs in the mid 50s at Main with upper 20s for lows. With the sun now so high in the sky I am expecting spring conditions this weekend from Main to the Top. However a bit of cloud cover could prevent the top from converting to spring.
Starting on Sunday it looks like we have a chance of showers each day through the new upcoming week.
As for the Snow Conditions out on Mammoth Mountain, we have a 12- 50 inches base with winter conditions from about MC Coy Station up to the top and spring conditions below that.
The groomers are a bit firm at 8:30 but get softer as the day goes on.
Up top they are grooming out Cornice and Scotties and the snow is a nice and fast packed powder. Off the groomers the tuns up top have been a bit rough.
Over on the Face of 3, center bowl is fast and fun and being groomed out nightly. The West Bowl bump crew has a couple lines going so some fun over there. By the weekend things should warm up for a good bump fest from noon till 4.
Locals Tip: Not sure why people say ski early and hike late… I guess people like to ski ice… the best corn next weekend will be after 11 am. Maybe sleep in get some laps in and then at 4pm get a late day bike ride or hike in.
Just a note if you have not heard Canyon and Eagle are closed for the season so all ski and snowboarding are now out of the main lodge only.
Lift running for the rest of the season are as follows: 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 23 and G1 & G2. All other lifts are now done for the year. If your coming up over the weekend plan on riding the parking shuttle.
If your into spring skiing and riding it’s worth a trip now before it melts out. My advice is to also bring your mountain bike and gear so you can get two sports while your in Mammoth. If your short on room to bring a bike Footloose Sports is now renting bikes out.
FYI: if you’re coming up to Mammoth please try to use the coupons off this web site. Those coupons are what makes Snowman posts possible. My staff and I will be working hard the next few months to add more coupons and deals here and at my town site at DiscoverMammoth.com.
