The snow is blowing sideways.  Conditions are good if not a bit wet.  The top is still closed.  This storm should help cover up a lot of bare spots.

Was a good day.  machine groomed and 1 inch of natural powder.  wasn't too busy either.  There is a kids ski camp on Fridays at 3pm and 5pm,  so best to avoid them.

Boarded for half the day today, then most lifts became closed. This was due to storm-like conditions, and zero visibility. Lots of snow now, hopefully it clears soon, and the mountain will be epic!!

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.

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
