The clock is ticking for the opening of the season, just nine days to go! Unfortunately there is not really any natural snow to report at this time although there is storm in the forecast for Friday so things could change. Temperatures are also meant to drop considerably by the end of the week allowing snow making to resume. Personally I’ve enjoyed the warmer weather in Mammoth especially after such a short summer but I am really getting excited about skiing now. Since I didn’t head back to Mount Hutt this summer this has been my longest break from skiing for a long time.
Here’s a photo showing the snow making to date. What you can see is commonly refered to as the White Ribbon of Death (WROD) meaning man made snow with dirt on either side. Lets hope mother nature gives us a little more of a helping hand soon!
