A record breaking 17.65m of snow has fallen in the Californian resort. Which is why PlanetSKI is heading there next month once the ski season ends in Europe. Check out the images.
Mammoth Mountain has officially surpassed its season snowfall record, previously set in the 2010/11 season.
“There’s an incredible 17.65 metres of snowfall in total so far this season,” said the resort in a statement.
“The resort has already extended its winter season through July and is yet to set a closing date so visitors will be skiing and riding well into the summer months.”
We reported on the extension earlier on PlanetSKI.
As we wrote the article a though popped into head – “Lets go!”
So, we are with flights all booked, May 10th – 22nd.
We have visited Mammoth Mountain before but at the other end of the season – Opening Weekend, back in November 2017.
After a series of mega-storm cycles throughout March and another storm is currently hitting the Eastern Sierra, which dropped 0.76cm overnight this month.
The previous record set in the 2010/11 was 16.96 metres.
All snowfall recordings are taken at the base of Main Lodge at Mammoth resort, but the summit of the mountain has recorded a massive 22 metres of snowfall over the course of the season.
Currently the snow at Main Lodge is 6.98 Metres deep and 8.53 Metres deep at the summit.
A handful of ski agents have spotted the opportunity too, including Trailfinders.
