Flew out to Malibu (74 degrees) to visit family and during our stay heard mammoth was to get 8" of snow. Didn't even think resort would be open end of April and decided to take a 3.5 hour road trip and were greated to 10+ inches of powder that night. 40-50 degreess the next day and still wonderful conditions thanks to the fresh powder the night before. 1st time there, but would definitely check it out again, just long flight from SE Coast. Only real con very remote for CA resort (unlike Lake Tahoe) with not a lot to do in town and cell service sketchy at best.
