Warren Miller’s Chasing Shadows Official Trailer

For the fall of 2015, Warren Miller Entertainment releases Chasing Shadows, the 66th annual winter sports film. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding as they find that very freedom.

Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that keep us searching for more. As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn — we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more.

Mammoth Mountain Live Web Cam from MC Coy Station

8-15-2015 – 3:52 PM – Hello from Mammoth Mountain, we have had clear blue skies with SW winds all day today.

We have just 89 days now until Mammoth Mountain is scheduled to open via snowmaking on Broadway.

Maybe we will get lucky and a early season storm will hit us in October, we are due for one of those events.

If you have not already done so, please book mark this page now. We will be updating you daily right up until opening day of the new ski season. We have your preseason stoke covered, now let’s just pray we get some decent snow when it counts.

So with the clear skies today we went for a ride off the top and we saw that there is a new fire start up at Little Walker Lake above Grant Lake on the June Lake Loop.

We do not expect much if any of that smoke to make it into Mammoth Lakes as long as the W-SW winds are blowing. Here is a picture we got from the top just after 2pm today.

View of the Little Walker Lake Fire from Mammoth-Mountain 8-15-2015Mammoth Mountain Forecast: Highs will be in the 60s up top with 70s at Main Lodge and close to 80 at Canyon Lodge, expect lows in the 40’s and 50s on the mountain.

Winds will be 15-35 MPH over the top at times thru the weekend, with lower wind speeds down at Canyon and Eagle. For a complete weather outlook check out our mammoth mountain weather section.

Mammoth Mountain Report: Perfect August days for the most part are upon us. We get some light smoke off and on, but so far nothing like last Summer. Looking around the mountain all the snow is gone, even the section that never melts on Dave’s is gone.

The bike park trails continue to hold up almost like it’s the first day they opened. The park crew has been going to the extra mile to keep it maintained out there.

Currently the Mountain Bike Park is running 7 days a week and is 100% opened with lift access via Gondola 1 & 2, Chair 11, Chair 2 on weekends, the Chair 2 bike shuttle and the Village Bike Shuttle.

The Ski area is also open for scenic gondola rides to the top of the mountain. The adventure center is also open with tons of fun for the family right in the Mammoth Mountain Inn area.

Hawaii Just Got Hit By A July Snow Storm

August 2nd, 2015 – by Chloe Fox – July snowstorms are weird enough. July snowstorms in Hawaii boggle the mind.  But that’s what happened at the summit of Mauna Kea on Hawaii’s Big Island on Friday morning.

The combination of passing thunderstorms and near-freezing temperatures led to 1.5 inches of snow and icy conditions, according to a ranger’s report.

Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano that rises 13,796 feet above sea level, gets snow regularly in the winter months, but rarely in the summer.  “It can happen,” meteorologist Ryan Lyman told West Hawaii Today. “Even in July.”  In the summer, average high temperatures at the summit are around 40 degrees, and average lows are around 25 degrees.   Read the whole story at this link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hawaii-summer-snow-storm_55a973dde4b065dfe89e737f

A Century of Adventures: Mammoth Mountain’s Founder Dave MC Coy Turns 100

Happy Birthday Dave MC Coy!  – Born on August 24, 1915 (yes, he’s turn­ing 100 this year!), Dave McCoy is best known for found­ing the Mam­moth Moun­tain Ski Area back in the 1940s. How that hap­pened is the stuff of leg­ends.

Since then, McCoy has not only kept active (he only stopped ski­ing in 2008 after a knee injury) but he’s also been involved in the design of the Rhino, an elec­tric four-wheel off road vehi­cle or UTV he still uses to explore the Mam­moth area.  Read this whole story at this link..
Happy Birthday Dave MC Coy
