Photos: Mammoth Mountain Ski Area Is Covered In Snow & There's More On The Way

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Earlier this week, a Mammoth Mountain spokesman sent out a dispatch from the newly-powdered ski area: "It is dumping snow at Mammoth Mountain right now," he declared, "winter came in like a hurricane, literally." At the time, winds were "gusting in excess of 100 MPH at the summit, which makes measurement difficult but there's at least 1-2 feet up top with 4 to 6 inches at Main lodge."

The spokesman told us today, "There is snow in the forecast again next weekend that should continue adding to the base from this last storm. We'll also fire up the snow making guns here shortly and start prepping a couple runs in advance of opening day. Certainly possible that we'll get some huge storms between now and then that would change some things. But that's the plan right now."

You'll have to wait a little bit longer to make your first tracks of the season, the mountain won't open for business until November 10th. Until then, click through and get stoked.
