First snow of the 16/17 season!

We had the famous “10 feet of wind” last weekend… but luckily, along with all of that wind came NEW SNOW! The mountain is looking nice and white now. We got 4-6 inches at Main Lodge and 1-2 feet up top! Mammoth Mountain opens on November 10… just a little over 3 weeks away. Dust […]

2015/2016 has come and gone!

Wow how time flies! Had a great 2015/16, with some amazing snow, fun lessons, and the mountain open until July 4. Now we’re in full-swing summer. I’ve been busy working, hanging out with my wife and 2-year-old, camping, and training for the grueling Tioga Pass Run (12.4 miles – only one hill!). See you for […]

The Winter Wonderland

Last weekend the skies finally opened up and we got some natural snow falling from above. Two storms rolled in and provided a much needed boost for the season. Mammoth Mountain is claiming four feet of new snow which I’d say is about right. It is enough to have all lifts open and most terrain […]

Snow at last!

The last time we got a decent snow fall was last year back on November 20th. We have finally received some new snow exactly two months later! It was only an inch so far but enough to cover the dirt and at least make the mountain look like a picture of winter. The skiing won’t […]

Hard pack conditions at Mammoth – tips on how to ski ice

We haven’t received new snow in Mammoth for two weeks now and some people are getting twitchy. In that time the Mountain has been making snow and they opened Chair 10 so it is not all bad. The groomed runs are still great but it can be on the icy side. It is not quite […]
