Mammoth Snowman Report 7-15-2017


7-15-2017 6 AM – Happy Summer to everyone, Snowman here with you. Ever since the first day of summer it’s been hot here in Mammoth. 

The summer heat as expected has melted the snow down faster then expected. The good news is the snow that remains is in great condition.

Snow conditions are a very fun soft summer corn snow. The size of the corn snow is bigger then it gets in spring.

All I know is every time I go out I have a hard time leaving at noon and I come home with a smile on my face. You need to give it a try ASAP.

**See our Fresh Photo Snow Report Below**

So with the melt down the mountain has decided to push snow around daily to keep things going. You can still ski down to Main Lodge and Chair 1 via Broadway and St Anton. 

Lifts open are Chairs 1, 3 and 23 along with G1 and G2 to the top. Lifts hours for Summer Snow Sports are from 730AM to 12PM.

Runs open are Broadway, Face of 3, Saddle Bowl, St Anton’s, Cornice Bowl, Drop Outs, Climax, Sign Line and a Short section of upper Dry Creek. Beware there are some bare spots and some rocks out there. 

The Mountain Bike Park is open with 17 miles of terrain ready to go. No lifts access just the bike park shuttle or peddle away.

Trails open are: Uptown, Downtown, Lakes, Juniper, Timber Ridge, Paper Route, Big Ring and a rebuilt Shot Gun are open. More trails should open daily now…

Happy Summer – Pray for Snow – Snowman Out!

Got to the parking lot at 7:30 AM and got this shot of the melted out Gravy Chute.Looking up from Chair 1 you can see they are pushing snow around to keep access open down to Main. The Broadway Express still running on July 14th… Yahoo Just enough snow to access the gates and get on the lift. Thank You Cat Crew!! The so called WROD (white ribbon of death) was offering up some good turns for summer time fun. Broadway with a mound of snow that got pushed out of Rusty’s Run. The Cat Crew has spent hours and hours pushing all this snow around. Cornice Bowl is still getting groomed nightly.The Drop Outs are melting out fast this week. Still some fun snow in there as of Friday when I got these images.The Cat Crew with their salt spreader. The Long off loading ramp from Chair 1 Here is the exit from St Anton, you had to jump a small dirt patch to get back to the lift.The Races runs Melted out this week.
You have to take you gear off and walk over a 10 foot patch of dirt to get to West Bowl now.Riding up Chair 2 to ski center bowl.We even have one jump set up to get some air time on. Center Bowl has some really good snow from 7:30 till noon.  Top of Chair 23 Hangman’s is now closed for the season. Cornice Bowl St Anton’s on July 14th… Amazing Fun! Look how all the snow is melted off the top, in this image you can see the start of Climax with the snow base extending out.  I am not sure I have ever seen that before, maybe back in 1995.  If you want to chat with the people who use this web site and share your own videos and images join our Mammoth Snowman Facebook Group.
