Massive Mammoth Storm Dumps 5 Feet of Snow
After unseasonably warm temperatures earlier this month, this storm delivered exactly what Mammoth needed. Although it was a warm storm, precipitation was all snow at Main Lodge (elevation 8,953ft). Temperatures dropped significantly over the weekend and by Monday morning when the skies cleared, temperatures were down in the teens, leaving skiers and snowboarders with a perfect bluebird powder day. |
Mammoth is 100% open with a 7-10 foot base of powder, packed powder and machine groomed snow. All 28 chairlifts are open with access to 3,500 acres of skiable terrain. The massive snow dump has set the slopes up for a long winter of great skiing. According to Jefferson Lanz, owner of City Concierge "This is an unprecedented dump of snow in such a short span of time".
Weather in Mammoth is normally in the 20's throughout most of the season with colder days and nights just before a storm hits. Weather plays a big role in Mammoth's history as the slopes were moved in the early years once the pocket of colder air and higher moisture were discovered by original owner Dave McCoy.
