After receiving 8-12″ of cold pow on Sunday/Monday, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area was ripping today. I thought the skiing would be decent, but underestimated the phenomenal conditions. The snow remained cold and chalky off piste most of the day and the groomers were absolutely ripping. It felt like we were skiing on cold, mid-winter snow all day. With so much terrain available, great snow conditions, and top to bottom skiing, this has to be the best skiing in California at the moment.

The best snow we found was under Chair 23, which you could easily traverse to from the Gondola. Lower Dropout was my favorite run and kept cold, chalky snow all day. The snow in West Bowl also remained chalky and is starting to turn into some fun bumps. Stump Alley had the best groomer that we skied and was especially good in the morning.

The forecast is looking mint through the weekend with bluebird skies and warm temps. Get out and enjoy the amazing California sun and snow!
