I skied Mammoth Mountain today, solo.
I rode Chair 23 for an hour without seeing nor hearing another snow slider.
There were 2-4 inches of new, wet snow on top of a soft under layer.
You could go fast. You could speed check. The skiing was fun.
The ski day began with cloud and sun. The ski day ended completely socked in and snowing.
At 1:04pm, thunder began to clap loudly to the north. It got closer every run.
At 1:18pm, they closed the mountain. The thunderstorm was approaching.
Since closing, it hasn’t stopped snowing.
Tomorrow will be good.
