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.
Now 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.
