Awesome day.  Deep powder but no previous ground cover.  Be careful in the trees.

Went up last night for night boarding. Hard packed with a thin layer of fresh snow. Snow was decent but still had a blast. Blowers were on and it looks like a little bit of snow is on its way tonight. Better make your way up before the temps go back up.

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

A lot of fun runs and plenty of park features it's wasn't that crowded either but that probably due to the lack of snow,

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.

good coverage on open runs and I didn't hit any rocks today.  gets slushy around 12.  no lift lines at all though which is a plus.  keep expectations low and have fun.

Spent the last three days here.  No lift lines.  Decent coverage on the slopes but it was so warm on Friday 1/10 that it turned to major slush and grassy patches were opening up.  Wouldn't recommend going unless it snows or snow making resumes.

It was hot, there was no snow coverage on the mountain, and I still had a blast. For there being absolutely no snow this winter they made enough for the runs to be fun. If you have the itch, go for it. If you are one of those people that complains about man made snow then go live in Colorado, but if your a LA native and just want to ride for the love of riding then go have some fun... 4 stars because it's the best they can do with what nature has given them

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.

The groomed runs are not bad. I was doing speed runs and hit 52.4 mph on the mountain.

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.

I don't know about anyone else's point of view about Mountain High today, but mine... Awesome... !!! We were coming down the slopes by 805 and it was great until about noon... They say 6

They say 6", some argue 3"- 4", how about we just call it 3"-6" and let everyone know the conditions this morning were great. Let's hope for more snow to help all ski resorts... (Pic above taken at 0745)
