24 hour snowfall: 11-22″ | 72 hour snowfall: 12-22″ | Snow depth: 60″ (*summit)

Mammoth Mountain continues to fly under the radar with what is likely the best skiing in the lower 48 right now. If you live in Mammoth Lakes, you’re definitely stoked on how this particular early season lined up.

What started with manmade conditions has turned into an epic start to the season after a single 6-foot storm changed the game. Today, skiers and riders were let loose on a mountain with a fresh coat on an already deep base. What’s better is that the morning started very snowy which was then followed shortly after by a blue sky opener.

  • Lifts Open: 10
  • Trails : 60

Warning: If you live in Utah or Colorado, these pictures will make you extremely jealous. 

Conditions Report: 

We received 12″ of new snow at Main Lodge and over 22″ at the summit overnight. Temperatures dropped this morning and snow is still coming down hard – there are going to be some great turns out there today. Pull out the pow crafts and the facemask because it’s time for another day in the white room. Strong winds remain in the forecast this morning, lifts may be on weather hold. Please note that Schoolyard Express [17] and Canyon Lodge are closed until Dec 15.
