It begins!

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday’s dusting was just a warm-up compared to the truckload of snow Mother Nature is dumping on Mammoth today. I woke up this morning to the gloomy grey glow of winter – probably about 6 inches in town and over a foot and still going up at Main Lodge. […]


First snow dusts Mammoth Mountain

This morning I awoke to the sight of fresh snow on the mountain from my bedroom window. I wasn’t surprised after listening to rain on the roof for much of the night. Winter is approaching and there is a definite bite in the air even during the day. There is more on the way tonight […]


Sign? What sign?

Snazzy Woolly and the Champagne Toast

Tomorrow this time the mountain will be open! After a bit more snow fell last night, plus the storm Sunday and almost non-stop snowmaking, the coverage is incredible. Chairs 1, 3, 6, 11 and lower and upper Gondi will be running. Dust off your skis and boards, it’s going to be a great day!
