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.
Looking at snow totals as of 2PM, so far at the 9000 foot level we have 13 inches of snow with 1.37 of water content. Up top an estimated 17 – 20 inches of new snow at this point in time. At the 8175 foot level I just measured 7 inches of new settled snow, with light snow flakes falling.
Looking at the radar we have 2 more waves of light precipitation to move thru and more showers after that. Mammoth could see 1-5 inches of additional snow by the morning.
