The past two days at Mammoth ski resort in California have been a spring paradise.  Huge park jumps, small park jumps, skiing from 11,000 feet, slushy bumps, perfect groomers, 3,000-vertical foot runs, Glen Plake and Julia Mancuso sitings, and a lot of mountain open.

Yesterday and the day before, Mammoth had a stiff breeze on the upper mountain that kept things from getting too soft.  It was good-for-you skiing with some great chalky snow off chair 23 all day both days.  The upper mountain didn’t get too soft all day due to the wind.

Told you it was soft today.

Today, that wind stopped completely and things were soft up top by 9:30am.  That made for some great corn skiing on the upper mountain along with some quality slushy bumps.  Today was more of a normal spring day where things got very soft and sticky in the afternoon.  Which is not a problem because Mammoth opens at 8:30am so you can get your fill before the snow gets too soft.

Our favorite part about Mammoth right now is the forecast.  It’s looking like a storm will roll through here next week on Tuesday/Wednesday.

MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY, THE COLD FRONT SLOWLY SINKS INTO
SOUTHERN NEVADA WHILE THE UPPER LOW MOVES OVERHEAD. THE GFS AND
ECMWF BOTH BRING LIGHT SHOWERS AS THE TROUGH AXIS MOVES OVERHEAD,
WITH THE BEST SHOT FOR DEEPER CONVECTION (I.E. THUNDERSTORMS)
TUESDAY OVER NORTHERN AND NORTHEASTERN NEVADA WITH THE CORE OF THE
COLDEST AIR ALOFT. HOWEVER, THE GEM CONTINUES TO CUT THE UPPER LOW
OFF AND DROP IT THROUGH CALIFORNIA. THIS WOULD BRING A BETTER SHOT
AT SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION IN THE DEFORMATION AXIS
IN THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT OF THE LOW. - NOAA.gov
