With the 2nd deepest snowpack in California, Mammoth Mountain has been well positioned for blower pow days as of late. While the other resorts are undoubtedly enjoying the fresh snow– they’re still dealing with some low-tide snowpacks that are somewhat limiting. Mammoth’s high elevation slopes on the other hand are going off.
But the best is yet to come. NOAA is currently forecasting upwards of 5 feet of new snow at the higher elevations by Sunday. This Atmospheric River is crucial to the rest of the year in California as everyone from urban dwellers to farmers rely on a healthy snowpack for their share of water. Right now, the forecast models are in uncanny agreement and this storm should be a doozy.
Conditions Report 2/28/18:
24 Hour Snowfall — 0″ | 7-day — 19″ | Base Depth — 90″
Yesterday the snow was phenomenal; fluffy, light and cold. The whole mountain was electric with the stoke of getting to enjoy some fresh pow. We now look forward to the forecast, which is calling for the largest storm of the season to date, set to arrive late this evening. Get ready for a lot more snow. As for today expect mostly sun and a chance to shred soft fresh corduroy lines and those un-tracked stashes still hiding.

Our near future is going to look a lot like this because the biggest storm of the season is headed straight for us. If you’re hitting the road the next few days, pay close attention to the weather forecast and check CalTrans for chain restrictions and road closures. Be safe, have fun and get ready for a #MammothMarch! @gopro @keenisthedream video shot last week. #goprosnow @oakleysnowboarding
