Was on the mountain from 9 to 4 yesterday - Snowed lightly all day but winds were really bad and heavy fog at 9000 feet and above made it really tough to see. However they opened up Facelift (lift 3) at about noon and it was awesome - tons and tons of pow. Must of gone up and down that 8 times trying to improve my pow skills. High winds limited much of the mountain - I think only 4 lifts opened yesterday.

I was about to head out today but saw that only the lower gondola was open due to wind. I think they opened up two others but then closed them shortly thereafter, so only only the gondola was running! Too bad - it was snowing like crazy all day. Tomorrow is supposed to clear up - hoping for a partial bluebird day with tons of pow and more runs open.

Attached pic is at 2 pm this afternoon - big wet flakes still comin down in town. I am guessing that the mountain is getting dumped on right now. More for tomorrow!

today wasn't too bad. The only thing open was lower gondola. You can always ride down to chair two lot and hop the parking shuttle back to main. A lot of people were doing that. I did a ton of laps on mambo and broadway thru the trees. Fresh tracks each time down, Ive had much windier days but visabilty was poor.

Are you riding tomorrow? I sent you my number, text me if you want to ride. wonder how long it will take for them to get everything open.

This sums up the extent of the storm that hit Mammoth this past weekend.

First pic was taken at the top of Mammoth last week (11/26 to be exact). See the totem pole with the Mammoth sign on it.

Second pic was from the same place this morning (Sunday Dec 2) - the Ski Patrol person is SITTING on the pole! That's 5 or 6 feet of POW!
