Mammoth Snowman Report 6-22-2017

6-22-2017 Noon – Hello from Mammoth Mountain. We still have tons of snow up here with a base of 35-170+ inches out on the hill.

That base should allow the Mountain to remain open into August. At this time there is no set closing date for the ski area. 

The Mountain Bike park will open this Saturday with 15 miles of single track. Uptown, Downtown, Big Ring and a rebuilt Shot Gun will be open.

Weather wise it’s summer time now with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s all the way up to Mc Coy station. Night time lows will continue to be warm in the mid to upper 40s. 

Snow conditions are now back to summer corn and slush. Make sure to wax your gear up daily for the best glide on the snow. Nothing worse them bogging down in the slush. 

If your coming up make plans to start out of the mill and ride up chair 2. If you want some firm snow get out at 7:30 AM and hit up the Main Lodge area, the Face of 3 and a groomed out Cornice.

The snow starts to get soft fast and by 7:30 AM Stump Alley is soft with everything else getting soft by 8:00 to 8:30 AM.  

Lifts running will be chairs will be 1, 2, 3, and 23 along with G1 and G2. Lifts hours are now running 7:30AM to 2PM. Please note chair 5 is also open at times when the mountain runs their high performance camps. After July 4th we expect only Chairs 3 and G2 will be open with access via G1..

Ski ya later, Snowman out.
