Mammoth Snowman Report 7-3-2017

7-3-2017 2:30PM – Hello from Mammoth Mountain. It’s July 4th weekend and everyone is enjoying the snow out on Mammoth Mountain. 

We still have tons of snow up here with a base of 12-150+ inches out on the hill.

That base should allow the upper Mountain to remain open into late July and possibly until August 6th. 

The Mountain Bike park is now open from 9AM to 5PM. Uptown, Downtown, Lakes, Juniper, Timber Ridge, Paper Route, Big Ring and a rebuilt Shot Gun are open.

Weather wise it’s summer time now with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s all the way up to Mc Coy station. Night time lows will continue to be warm in the mid to upper 40s. Down in town highs are in the low to mid 80s. 

Snow conditions are summer corn and slush. Make sure to wax your gear up daily for the best glide on the snow. 

This week the best skiing and snowboarding is up top on Climax, Hangman’s, Cornice Bowl, and the Drop Outs. Down lower try Fascination and Andy’s Double Gold. The snow by 8 am on these runs is just about perfect under the summer snow.

Nothing like super fun summer corn snow and fireworks off the top of Mammoth Mountain. Here a couple shots of the July 1st fireworks that they shot off from the top of Chair 23. The first image is by Jon Lea and the second by Alec Hunter.

If your coming up make plans to start out of the mill and ride up chair 2.  The snow starts to get soft fast and by 7:30 AM Stump Alley is soft with everything else getting soft by 8:00 to 8:30 AM.  

Lifts running will be chairs will be 1, 2, 3, and 23 along with G1 and G2. Lifts hours are now running 7:30AM to 2PM. Please note chair 5 is also open at times when the mountain runs their high performance camps. After July 4th we expect only Chairs 3 and G2 will be open with access via G1.

Let’s hope they keep it open until Sunday for the parking and access.Cornice Bowl still has 12-15 feet of snow. They groom it nightly for a flat fun surface to ski and ride on early in the morning. The Face of 3 still has some fun turns on it.
