Snowmans Mountain Summary Good afternoon from Mammoth Mountain. Note much new to report, the post holiday snow conditions continue to be just about the same over the last week. The snow surface is still holding up a lot better then you would think at this point. We are skiing and riding on a machine groomed packed surface with just a few slick spots and a few floating rocks. Grooming along with continued snowmaking is keeping things in decent shape. Add in a couple inches of fresh and a dusting on a couple nights has also helped keep the open runs a lot of fun to ride. I have not talked to anyone who was not having fun out on the hill. Just lot’s of smiles and good people having a blast with no one around. The best snow and best coverage is from Chair 2 over to Chair 12 at this time. And yes it’s still worth it for a trip up to Mammoth Mountain right now, but do not bring your new skis or snowboard at this time.

Up here at Mammoth Mountain the snow surface is holding up a lot better then you would think at this point. We are skiing and riding on a machine groomed pack snow surface with just a few slick spots. Snowman has been out daily and the snow surface that I am skiing is putting a smile on my face.

12-26-2014 1pm – Mammoth Mountain, California - It’s the biggest Holiday week in Mammoth Lakes so we sent Snowman out to check out the most current post Christmas Day conditions. Some great soft to firmed by the wind packed powder on and off the groomed runs on Mammoth Mountain. Feels like winter with a temperature of around 10 when they opened the lifts today. Snowman reported his camera froze 2x times from the cold conditions. In these images G2 was closed from 75 MPH NE wind gusts.

The window-cast shows clear skies over Mammoth Mountain. We currently have access to some great packed powder conditions from Chair 4 up to the top of the mountain. At times the wind has been blowing just perfect to create that nice soft powdered sugar surface out on the groomers and off piste.
