Freshies...finally!  You still have to be careful off-piste because its low tide, but this is sooo much better than it has been.

It's good today. This app isn't even reporting the snow that mammoth got. They got about 16 inches in the last 36 hours or snow. Everything is finally covered. Tree runs r slight thin cover but manageable. Over all very good conditions

The severity of the California drought is nowhere more apparent than it is here at Mammoth. Not a whole lot of runs are open. Cornice Bowl has ice and exposed rocks on the shady side of the run. I definitely saw several people sliding/falling down a quarter of the run after losing traction. Snow towards the middle of Cornice is nice though. For everywhere else on the mountain, the best snow can be found on the bunny slopes (i.e. Stump Alley and Broadway). Other runs of the black blue variety have sketchy coverage. There are plenty of patches of ice and exposed rocks on those runs and the sides of the runs are completely brown in most areas. You'll even find stray pebbles on many of the runs. If you're looking for good snow out west, then you should head to Colorado or Utah but Mammoth may have the most terrain open for California.

I will start off by saying that I have been coming to mammoth for good 12+ years now. I agree that the snow conditions are horrible compared to the norm up here, but they are not the worst mammoth has seen and YES, mammoth is still rideable. Chair 8 had some great soft spots so did the mill. There are some spots with very scarce coverage but most of them are avoidable. Small rocks here and there but no major dings or gashes to my board. I had a great time riding mammoth and I'll continue to ride all week. #PrayForSnow

Nice in the morning. Typical spring skiing.
Mammoth is doing a good job of spreading out the snow that's there. There are a few patches of ice and exposed gravel rocks but it's doable. Bring your rock board or thrasher ski's.

I was very surprised how fun it was even with as little snow that has fallen. Other than getting yelled at by all the sloooooow SoCal wantabees we were ripping past, it was a great trip.

Amazing beautiful blue skies. Lifts 1,3,4,5,8,10,12,16, & gondola all with access to over 50 trails. Yes need more snow but they have done an unbelievable job with the 3-4 feet they have received. Stay on trails coverage is great and they are blowing more snow at night.

This is Stump Alley. Surface is machine groomed hard packed with a half-inch of granular powder. Trail coverage is excellent. Lots of runs to ski, I was surprised how good it is.

Skiing was great Monday and Tuesday. Lots of runs are open including three and five and solitude. Should be plenty of snow to ski on through the weekend. It is warming up a little bit but the trail coverage is very good to excellent.

Cornice opened today. All man made, but fun anyway.  Icy entrance and softer once on run.  Having top open definitely thinned out the crowd
