They've been selling out of tickets a few times recently. I wasn't expecting that haha.

metric How is Mammoth looking so far? Sounds like they've been getting a few inches here and there the past few weeks. Is much open yet? I'm supposed to visit my uncle March 2-10, hoping for some epic powder by that point

rob7289 rode mt high yesterday..

so foggy! could barely see 10 ft in front of me at times at the top... about 45 degrees and raining... haha not the greatest conditions. snow was better than on opening day, but still very icy and the landings on some features saw dirt, grass and rocks.. only 2 very small jumps at the top... was literally hitting them blind through the fog. sketchy.

none the less had fun getting those hot laps in, there was no one there...waited maybe 25 seconds tops to get on the lift.... and enough park features to keep me happy, had a good day with my buddies but cannot wait for some actual snow!

hopefully soon!!! It was raining pretty hard where I live this morning (pasadena) so I took a little drive up Angeles Crest Highway, just bit past Mt Wilson at 5000ft

sadly it wasn't even close to freezing, in the low 50s and rain and clouds.

sigh.....I had to work today or I would have driven up to baldy and checked it out, another 5k up and it might have been snowing?

wait, if I wasn't working I would have driven to mammoth FML!

four more days. for me anyway.

We got there and started riding a little after noon. You could see ice shining in the sun haha. I have a bruise on my forearm from falling, that stuff was pretty hard =/ Still had a lot of fun, was great to get out there but I'm going to wait for more inches of natural snow. There was a lot of dirt showing.

I have a feeling I need to get my edges done. I think I'm going to wait for some nice, fresh, all-natural snow to get here.

onthefence From Bear Mountain's website today:

The first snowmaking fan guns charged up at 3:15pm and started pumping out thousands of gallons of snow! We expect to make sow all weekeend long and into next week so gear up and be ready for opening day 2012-13 at Bear. We’ll announce opening day details as we get closer.

From Snow Summit's website today:

Our first snowmaking fan guns started pumping out the white stuff at 3pm this afternoon and we expect to run snowmaking all weekend long and into next week. We're even getting some snow showers! Opening day is just around the corner and we will fill in the details as we get closer but until then take a look HERE at how we make real snow.


From Mountain High's website today:

It's snowing at Mountain High and, with temperatures in the high 20s, our snowmaking system is in full effect. We are working hard to open by Sunday morning so please keep in touch with us here or sign up for the Powder Alert at Powder Alert | Mountain High to receive emails or text alerts notifying you of opening day. See you on the mountain.
