After a busy Thanksgiving I got the chance to have bit of a freeski today. Conditions are excellent with pristine groomers, chopped powder off piste and no one here!
This is the main run coming into Canyon at 9am this morning:
And check out the lift line at Chair 16:
We received between 4-6 feet of fresh snow last week with another foot from the storm on Saturday. There is a lot of good off-piste skiing but some places are a little sketchy still with hidden rocks and small tree tops sticking out. In particular there is some great skiing to be had off chairs 3 and 5.
And Dave’s run looked the pick of the runs from the top.
So as far as early season conditions go at Mammoth this is a great start. It should be pretty good skiing for the next couple of weeks with no crowds and awesome snow. Most of the mountain is open including Canyon and Eagle Lodges. Full ski school is operating from Main lodge with $95/hour private lessons being offered from Canyon and Eagle lodges. It’s the perfect time to come ski and take a lesson with me!
