With at least 35 feet (420″) of snow on the ground so far this season, Mammoth Mountain has plans to keep the lifts turning until at least the 4th of July. Thanks to record snowfall totals this year, such as 20 feet (240″) of snow dumping down in January alone, there’ll be many more days to surf the white wave to come. 

Mammoths’s record-breaking snowfall streak continues. So far we’ve received 241″ of snow, shattering the previous record of 209″ set in December of 2010.

According to the LA Times, the last time Mammoth was able to go so deep in the season was 2010-2011, when the snowfall totals that year were around 56 feet (672″). This eastern Sierra Nevada resort also boasts the highest elevation of the California ski resorts at 11,053, helping to keep that snow right where you want it – on the slopes.
