Official Snowfall Record Broken

The 22/23 season at Mammoth will go down in history. During the last big round of storms, Mammoth Mountain officially broke the all-time record for season snowfall and is currently sitting at a whopping 712″ at Main Lodge. Now get ready for record-breaking fun. Mammoth Mountain is sitting on the deepest base depth ever recorded at Main Lodge, which means the spring skiing and riding is going to be as good as it gets, especially now that Mother Nature is turning on a little warm weather, too. Get ready to shred into summer too – Mammoth Mountain will be open daily through at least the end of July.

Be Patient (and Thank a Local)
Please remember that locals have been shoveling non-stop just to get to work to help our town operate. They are tired, but they are here for you! Please thank them if you have a chance.

With this amount of snow, town is going to feel tight. Snowbanks are HUGE and often tough to see around whether you are driving or walking, and parking lots are tight. Please use extreme caution and be patient when looking for parking spots and when driving to and from the mountain. Being patient helps everyone stay safe.

Please be aware that due to the extreme nature of this storm, operations could be affected, and delayed openings of lifts is expected. For current operations, check the Mammoth Mountain app or website.

As always, keep an eye on reports about road conditions and closures and plan your travel during times when the roads are safest. Remember to always clear your roof of snow, as it may shift while you drive.
