Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 3-29-2014

3-29-2014 7:45AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we have a Winter Storm Warning posted from late today thru the night time hours.

As of 7am at Main Lodge we have winds to 40 mph with a temperature of 28, up at 11,053 feet winds are peaking at 70 mph with a temperature of 21.

Chairs 9, 12, 22, 23 and 25 are on wind hold at this time.  I would expect more to be added to the list by 8am….

Tonight’s storm could bring 7-10 inches in town and a good 12-18+ inches from Main Lodge on up to the top of Mammoth Mountain.  Sunday is looking to clear out fast for a epic spring powder day.

By Monday the next powder event is on the way with snow by late in the day and into Tuesday.  That snow should be some nice and light powder.  Some forecasts show the snow as light as 20-1.  Amounts could be in the 12-24+ inch range for some epic powder skiing and riding!

If you want a taste of some powder today is the time to pack the car and drive up.  I would plan on staying thru Wednesday for epic powder skiing and riding. If you need lodging your can book it right here at MammothSnowman.com, use our Mammoth Lakes Lodging link.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report 3-24-2014

Mammoth Mountain Cam

3-24-2014 7AM – Good morning from Mammoth Mountain, we have spring conditions on the lower half of the hill, with winter wind pack and great groomers on the upper half of the ski area.

The base is around 50-70 inches from Main Lodge on up to the top. The snow is getting a bit firm up top with the days in the 40s and 50s over the weened.

We could use a refresher of new snow and it looks to be on the way this Tuesday night into early Thursday. Take a look at the QPF chart below, it shows 1 – 1.5 inces of water for the Mammoth Lakes and Mammoth Mountain Areas.

Many times those QPF forecasts are a bit low for Mammoth, with this system it does look like we could see a good 12-18 inches over the upper powderfields of Mammoth Mountain Tuesday night into Early Thursday.

This will be a much needed refresh back to winter conditions. Please remember it’s now spring so the sun is high in the sky.

You want to get up here for the powder & packed powder on Wednesday since it will not last long once the sun it out. Weather Guy will have a update late on Tuesday so check this link at that time for the last update on the new storm and more to come after that.

For Monday into Tuesday the best skiing and riding at this time is up top on Cornice early and on the chairs 3 and 5 on the groomers. Best bet is to keep riding out of the main lodge area until Canyon gets a refresh on Wednesday.

The Canyon are is firm early and full on spring mush by 11am. I would avoid the Little Eagle area at this time, it’s very melted out and not the best experience right now.

If you want to save big on lift tickets check out the packages you can now get right from MammothSnowman.com and Liftopia.

If your looking for Discount Ski Rentals in Mammoth Lakes try out the Ski Renter here in town by the Shell Station. If your into Snowboarding, Wave Rave can take care of you with Rentals and Plenty of New Gear on Sale.

Looking WAY ahead to Next Season the MVP goes on sale this week, drought or deluge it’s still a great deal. Got to be impressed with the effort that was made with snowmaking this season!

The Early Forecast for next season does show a rather strong El Nino event. It’s all ready starting to form. At this point winds that forecasters look at are stronger then in spring 1997 when the last so called supper El Nino formed and brought the entire state a big winter. All I know is I am getting a season pass for next season! ______________________

12-13-13 Snow Report Update

Mammoth Mountain Chair 3 Snowmaking12-13-2013 1PM Good day from Mammoth Mountain.

Mammoth Mountain Photos 12-13-2013

Snowman was out for some laps on many of the open runs this morning.

What I found was a lot of very firm groomed snow, it was also still cold out there as well.

Taking a look around the hill this is the top of chair 5 and Solitude. The snow in here is still very firm, but should loosen up with some more grooming and warming temperatures during the day.

Lower Solitude was a bit softer, but you need to watch for floating rocks on your left as you ride down. Best part of this run was the soft snow near the snow making guns.

The Face of Five has a couple lines you can pick your way thru, but I would not recommend you try the face at this time.

Saddle bowl off the back of chair 3 has some great groomed snow in it.  Not packed powder but some sugar skied out man made stuff.   The sun hits this run just after 10am, make sure to hit it up at that time.

Snowmaking is now under way on the Face of Chair 3.  Center Bowl looks to be the main goal at this point.   We will keep you updated on the progress they make over the weekend. 

The Unbound Main is set up and ready for a weekend of fun.

Stump Alley is wide open now with a mix of firm groomed snow with some softer surface snow floating around. 

Off Piste is looking very, very thin and low tide on what is ridable at this point. Your best bet is to wait for more snow. If you need to get off the groomers try out the Drop Out Chutes. Also to note the top of Cornice is a ice skating rink. Use caution getting into Cornice or the traverse to the Drop Outs.

At this point please pray for snow…. Snowman out!

Snowmaking Update

ptz.cgi10-23-2013 7:06 AM – Hello and welcome to MammothSnowman.com.

SNOW-MAKING WAS ON Early this Morning!

You read that right, snowmaking operations cranked up for a few hours last night. Looks a bit weak at this point, but this is how it all begins.

Expect a few hours of snowmaking again over the next few nights. By Monday and Tuesday much cooler air will be in the area for the first significant snowmaking run.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low to mid 30s at the Main Lodge.

Perfect timing next week with the cold air as we will be out filming our first Video Snow Report of the Season. This years video snow report series will come out online on late Wednesday afternoons and the Outside TV version on Thursday and Fridays.

At this point we are just 15 days until the scheduled opener here at the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area. 

Snowman out….

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report – 10-14-2013

Mammoth Mountain Web Cam

10-14-2013 9:00 AM – Current snow conditions at Canyon Lodge & Main Lodges, we picked up 1 inch of light snow on Sunday Morning.

So that brings us to 4 snowfalls in October. It’s not adding up to any base, but at least something is getting in here.

I think it’s a sign of good things to come this Winter.

Mammoth Mountain Snow Report – 10-14-2013 – 7:43 AM

Current Base: There is no base, just spots that have accumulated a bit snow we have picked up over the last 3 weeks. Areas that get a lot of sun are melted off fast.

Canyon Lodge = Moist Dirt to a Dusting, Main Lodge = 0-2 inches, MC Coy Station = 0-3 inches, Top = 0-3 inches

Ski area crews have been working hard to get the mountain ready for the upcoming ski season. We should be seeing snowmaking equipment coming out in a week or so with snowmaking planned anytime after October 21st in a normal year.

The image below was taken from The Paper Route Mountain Bike Trail. The View of Twin Lakes from Paper Route on Mammoth MountainHere are the images we got last week – 9-22-2013 photo gallery.

FYI over the next 7-10 days we will be changing up our web site format, content, menus and adding in a mobile version for all your smart phone users.

We are also adding in some new bloggers to the site. That will really pick up the stoke big time this season with insane images and some fresh trip reports from inbound and out of bounds. If you would like to be a blogger here at mammothsnowman.com, contact us today.

Weekly Video Weather & Snow Reports will be starting with the next storm or when snowmaking begins. Going to be the best season ever at Mammoth Mountain and at MammothSnowman.com.
