Mammoth Snowman Report 8-7-2017

8-7-2017 – 6AM – Welcome to  the home of Mammoth Snowman.

Mammoth Mountain has now closed for snow sports. They had a 270 day run, the second longest season in history for the ski area.

Opening day for next season is now at 94 days away, that is November 9th, 2017.

Snowman is hoping we get things open early, all we need is a good 2-3 foot storm and they can run chair 1 again. Snowmaking crews come back on board around the 20th of October. 

With snow sports over we can now get down to some summer fun, we will be updating just about daily right up to the opener.

Also check us out at for more details and updates on Summer and Fall fun. 

The Mountain Bike Park is almost 100% open with top to bottom riding now. G1 and G2 are open from 9am to 5PM for Mountain Biking and Scenic rides. Also to note chairs 2 and 16 are open for bikers Friday – Sunday this month. 

The bike park is in really great shape with the dust settling down from 2 days of off and on rain. 

It’s worth checking out if you have never had a day in the dirt on the mountain. It’s not snow sports but it sure can be fun and your out on Mammoth Mountain. 

Snowman and crew will be out getting images from the Mountain Bike Park later this week.

If your looking for our updated weather we update daily on our Mammoth Weather Page.

Going to miss these guys the next 90 days.  See ya soon!
