Weather News: Storm at Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth's season is off and running and Mother Nature is blessing the California resort with a sweet, deep storm.

It started dumping at Mammoth Mountain on Wednesday and the storm shows no signs of slowing.

The resort is claiming that there is currently six feet of fresh snow at the summit, over a two and half  feet at the Main Lodge, and more snow is in the forecast.

According to reports, flakes continue to fall, an another 18" is excepted by the time the storm ceases.

All of this snow will allow Mammoth to open from top-to-bottom, once crews are able to safely open the terrain. Our friends at Mammoth say that is likely to happen by this weekend.

Storm Highlights:
-2.5 feet of fresh snow at Mammoth
-Up to 4 feet by the time the storm is done
-More lifts and trails will open for the weekend, with top-to-bottom skiing & riding a good possibility
-Check CalTrans for up-to-date road conditions before travel in the mountains

Mammoth opened last week, and all this new snow is definitely welcomed and necessary for a deep base, and to boost top to bottom conditions.
