Mammoth Mountain Summer Report

7-27-2015 – 8AM – Good Day from the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area.

It’s a perfect Monday here in Mammoth Lakes, feels more like late summer today then mid July.

Over the weekend we did start to get some smoke in the Mammoth Mountain area. The Willow fire near Bass lake is what the smoke is coming from.

In this case when we get SW, W or WSW winds will get smoke moving into the area. Tuesday into Thursday this week we get a weak easterly flow so that will keep us out of the thick smoke.

In the past fires like this bring us the most smoke after noon and then the smoke slowly goes away over night, only to return once again the next afternoon.

For the next few days temperatures on the mountain will be in the 60s by mid day. Lows will be in the 30s/40s early in the morning.

Today winds will be WSW 10-20+ MPH over the higher elevations and 5-15 down in the Canyon Lodge area. On Tuesday winds will be 10-20 MPH out of the east, so smoke from the Willow Fire will be trapped on the west side of the sierra.

7-27-2015-mammothlakesNow is the time to come on up and experience some Mammoth Mountain Biking, a scenic Gondola ride and the Adventure Center daily. The park is in great shape and ready for downhill and cross country fun.

If your into Downhill Mountain Bike Racing the Village Downhill Mountain Bike Series continues on Friday. Sign ups are at 4PM at the Adventure Center and the Race starts at 5pm. We have had around 35-45 for the last three races. Come on out and win some free stuff and have FUN!

We are already looking forward to the next winter season. From CPC Synopsis: There is a greater than 90% chance that El Niño will continue through Northern Hemisphere winter 2015-16, and around an 80% chance it will last into early spring 2016. Here is the link to the July 9th Update.

Things are looking very green on Mammoth Mountain at this time.

80-Inches of Snow Forecast for Chile This Week

Posted in Mammoth Weather | Tagged , , , | Comments Off on 80-Inches of Snow Forecast for Chile This Week

Mammoth Mountain Today 5-15-2015

5-15-2015 – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain. We picked up 6-8 inches of some nice light powder on Thursday.

Not really enough for a powder day with the hard pack under that light snow. I am sure some one will find some patches that will offer up some fun freshies this am.

Highs are in the 20s this am and should peak out in the low 30s at Main and remain in the 20s over chairs 3 and 23. WNW Winds will be 15-25 MPH and should turn to the west after lunch today.  We have a 80% chance of showers today with 2-3 inches of new snow possible.  Check out our weather page for more details.

Over the last few days the snow has been staying firm with the winds, cooler temperatures and a few clouds around. At this point we have a base of 0-50 inches out on the hill. You can still ski back to main but its now the just a ribbon of snow and should be for access only.

Lifts running this weekend will be chairs 1, 3 and 23 (weather permitting). The gondola will reopen Fri May 22 – Mon May 25 . Remember the mountain is open from 7:30 to 1:30 PM, so bring your fishing pole and mountain bike for some after skiing fun. Mountain Biking is on, with lower elevation trails all melted out.

IMG_2619 IMG_2618 IMG_2617 IMG_2616 IMG_2615 IMG_2614 IMG_2611 IMG_2610 IMG_2609 IMG_2608 IMG_2604 IMG_2603

Got Snow? We do once again with over 5 inches of new at Main Lodge and more coming down at this time. Better late then never.... ski ya in the morning.

Posted by Mammoth Mountain Snowman on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Snow Conditions: As stated above it’s been firm all day with the cooler temperatures and winds we have been experiencing.

Cornice Bowl is getting groomed nightly is now into full on spring firm pack conditions.

West Bowl is all bumped up again, but it’s going to be next week before it thaws again.

Center Bowl Has plenty of coverage at this time, the ski area continues to groom this run on a nightly basis. With nobody around center bowl is staying flat and firm all day long.

Saddle Bowl is in great shape, we just need some fresh snow to soften is up. If you like the firm stuff get a good edge and rip it up.



If your a ultra hardcore and 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 fishing gear so you can get three sports in while your in Mammoth. If your short on room to bring a bike, Footloose Sports is now renting bikes out.

PS 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.

Mammoth Mountain Today 5-11-2015

http://mammothsnowman.com/web-cams/5-11-2015 – 8AM – We had a taste of the winter the last few days.

Spring will return today with highs in the upper 40s at Main Lodge, with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s up top.

Winds will be breezy, with a southwest wind 15 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 40+mph up top.

Monday thru Wednesday looks to be spring conditions with SW winds continuing all week.  The forecast calls for more snow late in the upcoming week into next weekend.

So at this point we have a base of 6-50 inches out on the hill.  When you ski back to main make sure to ride the groomed path do you avoid hitting rocks.

Lifts running this week will be chairs 1, 3, 6, and 23. Remember the mountain is open from 7:30 to 1:30 PM, now so bring your fishing pole for some after skiing fun. Mountain Biking will be on again once some of this new snow melts off.

Powder Day on Mammoth May 9th, 2015 mammoth-mountain-5-8-2015

Snow Conditions:  Things are converting over to spring with it being very firm at 7:30 am and then softening by 10 am.   Not sure what will happen with all the skied out powder off of 23.  Snowmans take is it will not be very good until it snows again later in the week.

Cornice Bowl is getting groomed nightly and for now is will be in a packed powder state early in the morning. We will see how warm it gets on Monday, not sure if it will convert to spring or not.

West Bowl is all bumped up again and trying to turn over to spring,  I would expect that to happen today.

Center Bowl Has plenty of coverage at this time, the ski area continues to groom this run on a nightly basis.  With nobody around center bowl is staying flat and fun all day long.

Saddle Bowl is in great shape with packed powder converting to spring conditions later in the day today.

The Unbound Cheers to the ski area’s unbound crew for keep a half pipe up and running. There are also all sorts of features set up for your enjoyment.

If your a hardcore and 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 fishing gear so you can get three sports in while your in Mammoth. If your short on room to bring a bike, Footloose Sports is now renting bikes out.

Mammoth Mountain Today 5-10-2015

http://mammothsnowman.com/web-cams/5-10-2015 – 8AM – We had a taste of the winter the last few days, spring will return today with highs in the 50s at Main Lodge with highs in the 30 and low 40s up top.

We do have a east wind flow this am so that should keep the snow up top in a winter state for now.

Yesterday was one special day with 12-18 inches of fresh up top. The snow skied great and everyone who made it out had a blast. With the new snow Mammoth Mountain will not close today but stay open until things melt out.

The forecast calls for more snow late in the upcoming weekend into next weekend, so we should be good to go for 2-3 more weeks unless it gets to warm.

So at this point we have a base of 6-50 inches out on the hill. When you ski back to main make sure to ride the groomed path do you avoid hitting rocks.

Lifts running this week will be chairs 1, 3, 6, and 23. Remember the mountain is open from 7:30 to 1:30 PM, now so bring your fishing pole for some after skiing fun. Mountain Biking will be on again once some of this new snow melts off.

Powder Day on Mammoth May 9th, 2015 mammoth-mountain-5-8-2015

Snow Conditions: Winter Packed powder and powder crud turning over to spring conditions is what you will find the next couple days out on the the hill.

We should return to it being firm early with the snow softening as the day goes on starting on Monday. Not sure what will happen with all the skied out powder off of 23. Snowmans take is it will not be very good until it snows again later in the week.

Cornice Bowl is getting groomed nightly and for now is will be in a packed powder state. We will see how warm it gets on Monday, not sure if it will convert to spring or not.

West Bowl is all bumped up again and might return to spring conditions by Tuesday. For now it’s in a packed powder state with some of the firm bumps trying to reach out and catch you off guard.

Center Bowl Has plenty of coverage at this time, the ski area continues to groom this run on a nightly basis. With nobody around center bowl is staying flat and fun all day long.

Saddle Bowl is in great shape with packed powder converting to spring conditions later in the day today.

The Unbound Cheers to the ski area’s unbound crew for keep a half pipe up and running. There are also all sorts of features set up for your enjoyment.

12-18 inches of fresh snow on Mammoth Mountain

dougiefreshness5-8-2015 – 1:50PM – Welcome to a return to winter on Mammoth Mountain.

We got Fresh Snow… 12 inches at main with up to 18 inches of new snow up top. 

For Saturday we are expecting highs in the 30s up top with a 40 at Main Lodge with lows in the 20s.  Expect north winds at 5-25 mph at times.

As for the snow conditions out on Mammoth Mountain.  There is a 0 – 40 inch base at this time with 12-18 new on top of that base.

We would advise only trying to rip up some powder from chair 3 up since most of the snow around main lodge was gone before this new snow fell.  It’s VERY VERY LOW TIDE, so be careful folks. 

Saturday is looking to be a killer powder day, with chairs 1, 3, 6, 23 and G1 and G2 running.  From what we here it’s all fresh out there so pack your gear and get up here. 

Remember the mountain is open from 7:30 to 1:30 PM, now so bring your fishing pole for some after skiing fun.

mammoth-mountain-5-8-2015
wooly

UPDATE COMING: The snow is firm early and then softens as the day goes on as long as the sun is out shining on the runs. Lift running at this time: 1, 3, 6,and 23.

Cornice Bowl is getting groomed nightly. Early in the morning it’s now firm and fast fun. You will want a good set of edge first thing in the morning. As the day goes on the snow softens up as long as we do not have a east wind blowing.

West Bowl is all bumped up again and in spring conditions. The snow in here is softening up when the sun hits it for a few hours and we have a SW wind. Like the top if we get winds out of the east the bumps stay firm. Best time to ski the bumps is after 11:30 am.

Center Bowl Has plenty of coverage at this time, the ski area continues to groom this run on a nightly basis. With nobody around center bowl is stay flat and fun all day long.

Saddle Bowl Has some great snow once things warm up. If you like it firm, flat and fast, Early morning laps are the call for you. Unlike past springs they are not building a half pipe on the side of saddle bowl this season.

The Race Runs are toast except for Andy’s Double Gold. In the image above you can see they are using the snow off of fascination to keep things going on Broadway. Also to note Powder Bowl is still open.

Chair 2 is melting out very fast, we would expect stump alley and the mill to close by the end of the coming weekend.

The Unbound Cheers to the ski area’s unbound crew for keep a half pipe up and running. There are also all sorts of features set up for you enjoyment. Lot’s of pros and expert riders out in the park these days.

If your a hardcore and 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 fishing gear so you can get three sports in while your in Mammoth. If your short on room to bring a bike, Footloose Sports is now renting bikes out.

Photos – McLeod Lake – April 28th, 2015

For today we are expecting highs in the 50s around Main Lodge with lows in the 30s.

We will also have a 20% – 60% chance of thunder storms and or snow showers thru Friday.

Highs will come down into the 30s by Thursday with a chance of snow showers.

Weather Guy thinks we could pick up a few inches of snow. Here is the link to his detailed weather post from Monday.

As for the snow conditions out on Mammoth Mountain. There is a 0 – 40 inch base with spring conditions across most of the hill at this time. Watch for bare spots and obsticals as it’s low tide out there.

The snow is firm early and then softens as the day goes on as long as the sun is out shining on the runs. Lift running at this time: 1, 3, 6,and 23.

Overall things are melting out very fast below the 9500 foot level. The grooming crew has been doing a great job with pushing snow around to keep chairs 1 and 6 going out of the Main Lodge area.

We are getting a lot of emails asking when the ski area plans to shut down we have now heard the May 10th will be closing day unless we get a couple feet of snow this week.

Cornice Bowl is getting groomed nightly. Early in the morning it’s now firm and fast fun. You will want a good set of edge first thing in the morning. As the day goes on the snow softens up as long as we do not have a east wind blowing.

Mammoth Mountain Today 5-3-2015

4446968_orig5-3-2015 – 6:12 AM – Welcome to Spring on Mammoth Mountain and thanks for stopping Mammoth Snowman.com.

Photos – McLeod Lake – April 28th, 2015

For today we are expecting highs in the 50s around Main Lodge with lows in the 30s.

We will also have a 20% – 40% chance of thunder storms thru next Friday.  Not expecting more then a few showers at best. 

Highs will come down into the 40s by mid week with a chance of snow showers by Thursday and Friday.

As for the snow conditions out on Mammoth Mountain.  There is a 0 – 40 inch base with spring conditions across most of the hill at this time.   Watch for bare spots and obsticals as it’s low tide out there.

The snow is firm early and then softens as the day goes on as long as the sun is out shining on the runs.  Lift running at this time: 1, 2, 3, 6, 23 and G1 & G2.

Overall things are melting out very fast below the 9500 foot level. The grooming crew has been doing a great job with pushing snow around to keep chairs 1 and 6 going out of the Main Lodge area.

It’s getting very thin down low, but as you can see in the image below they are still making a major effort to keep access going.

We are getting a lot of emails asking when the ski area plans to shut down we have now heard the May 10th will be closing day unless we get a couple feet of snow this week.

Cornice Bowl is getting groomed nightly. Early in the morning it’s now firm and fast fun. You will want a good set of edge first thing in the morning.  As the day goes on the snow softens up as long as we do not have a east wind blowing.

West Bowl is all bumped up again and in spring conditions.  The snow in here is softening up when the sun hits it for a few hours and we have a SW wind.  Like the top if we get winds out of the east the bumps stay firm.   Best time to ski the bumps is after 11:30 am. 

Center Bowl Has plenty of coverage at this time, the ski area continues to groom this run on a nightly basis.  With nobody around center bowl is stay flat and fun all day long. 

Saddle Bowl Has some great snow once things warm up.  If you like it firm, flat and fast,  Early morning laps are the call for you. Unlike past springs they are not building a half pipe on the side of saddle bowl this season.  

The Race Runs are toast except for Andy’s Double Gold.  In the image above you can see they are using the snow off of fascination to keep things going on Broadway.   Also to note Powder Bowl is still open. 

Chair 2 is melting out very fast, we would expect stump alley and the mill to close by the end of the coming weekend.

The Unbound Cheers to the ski area’s unbound crew for keep a half pipe up and running.  There are also all sorts of features set up for you enjoyment.  Lot’s of pros and expert riders out in the park these days. 2015-04-30_0822

 

If your a hardcore and 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 fishing gear so you can get three sports in while your in Mammoth.  If your short on room to bring a bike, Footloose Sports is now renting bikes out.
