Mammoth received an incredible 606 inches of snow this season, the most the resort has received in a single season.

Jerry Brown has declared an end to the drought <http://www.news10.net/news/article/131108/29/Brown-proclaims-drought-over-in-state> that has faced California since June 2008. Mammoth is currently at 157% of its seasonal average to date for precipitation.
