Mammoth Snowman Report 7-10-2017


7-10-2017 6 AM – Thanks for stopping by, it’s winter everyday on this web page. 

We are still skiing and boarding on a 10 – 98+ inch base of summer corn snow.

It’s getting thin down at Main, but the excellent grooming crew is pushing snow around to make it last longer.

The snow is now full on summer corn and most of it is soft by 8AM.

Runs down low start to get a bit sticky around 10:30 AM, while the upper mountain and mid mountain stay good till noon.

Lifts open are Chairs 1 and 3 along with G1 and G2 to the top. Lifts hours for Summer Snow Sports are from 730AM to 12PM.

Runs open are Broadway, Rusty’s, Fascination, Andy’s Double Gold, Forest Trail, Face of 3, West Bowl, Saddle Bowl, St Anton’s, Cornice Bowl, Drop Outs, Climax, Sign Line and a Short section of upper Dry Creek.

Beware there are some bare spots and some rocks out there. Access to West Bowl will be walk in only in a few days, get those bumps while you can.

The Mountain Bike Park is open with 17 miles of terrain ready to go. No lifts access just the bike park shuttle or peddle away.

Trails open are: Uptown, Downtown, Lakes, Juniper, Timber Ridge, Paper Route, Big Ring and a rebuilt Shot Gun are open. More trails should open by the weekend. 

Happy Summer – Pray for Snow – Snowman Out!
