Skiing at Mammoth till Fourth of July
Thanks to a record-breaking snow year, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area will remain open daily for skiing and snowboarding through July 4, 2011. According to Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, Mammoth received an incredible 606 inches of snow this season, the most the resort has received in a single season.
With 15-25 feet of packed snow, Mammoth has also earned the recognition of having one of the highest recorded base depths of any ski resort in the world according to skiinfo.com. The snow totals will ensure phenomenal spring skiing conditions that will last well into early summer.
Throughout the season, Mother Nature has continued to live up to the La Niña expectations, blanketing Mammoth Mountain’s 3,500 skiable acres with stunning amounts of powder. Due to the record-breaking snowfall in Mammoth and throughout the Sierra, Gov. Jerry Brown has declared an end to the drought that has faced California since June 2008. Mammoth is currently at 157% of its seasonal average to date for precipitation.
