Mammoth Mountain is reporting up to 3″ of new snow after a winter storm blew into the high mountains of the eastern Sierra last night. So far, video and pictures are showing decent accumulations near the summit and NOAA is saying the snow should continue till 11pm tonight.
Bottomline, Mammoth is getting a much needed refresh that should give the ski area a much needed boost as they continue to strive skiing and riding on July 4th weekend.
