Another trip coming up March 27 Mammoth Ca

Going to Mammoth in Cali on the 27th of march - i know its late in the season but im keeping my fingers crossed for some fresh stuff. I see they just had a dump there yesterday and the last couple of days. Will be there for five days exploring all Mammoth has to offer.

I have heard they get snow all the way into april up there.

Do what Shocktroop531 said...go to Mammoth but make sure you go to June at least once.I went this past weekend and the snow was great,people friendly and the longest lift I waited in was 30 seconds[although the 1st lift was slow].Mammoth will be open until July for sure.

Frocast is looking good - 10 days of snow forcasted, still showing snow for the day I arrive!

Only downside is the radiation floating over from Japan - oh well no risk no reward.

How's driving up there when it's snowing? I'm heading up next weekend (24th-27th) and it looks like it might snow.. a bit hard to tell since its still a week out and the weather reports aren't that great when its that far out. just wondering if I should bring cables/chains for the car.

Always carry chains.They are really good at clearing the 395...it's in Mammoth that it gets kinda dicey.

I drove up there twice this year, it was snowing both times. At Thanksgiving it was blowing snow, pretty slick, and between Xmas and New Years it was not quite as bad but 395 was closed for the last 12 or so miles (for I think a few hours). Good luck getting any warning.. nothing in Bishop saying the road was closed, nothing on the radio station they list on the road signs, and all CA-DOT said was, "take alternate route", and of course there is none. So like they said, bring chains and if it's dicey maybe just stop in Bishop and see if anyone knows anything.

If everything works out, local mountain this weekend (bear/snow summit), Mammoth next, and Tahoe for one day week after (Fiance is working up in Nor cal, so i'm flying up to help her drive down ... with a detour up I-80!). Mammoth looks to be dumping this weekend until Monday. Next week is pretty clear for us, so it's a tradeoff. No powder (I'm praying for at least a dusting) but clear roads and great weather.
