Springtime has finally sprung! Cool nights and warm days are forecasted through the final day of the season on May 6, including a few sprinkles, sunshine, soft bumps and of course – corn snow! That’s right, we’re heading down the final stretch of the season with 9 days remaining, so if you’re thinking about making some late-season turns, now is the time to lather up the sunscreen and hit the slopes. We’ll be operating the Superstar Express and the K-1 Gondola through Sunday, then the Superstar Express through closing day May 6.

Slalom Anyone? The 46th Annual May 1 Fun Slalom hits the slopes Tuesday. The Fun Slalom is free with a season pass or lift ticket for the day.

Mammoth Mountain
Spring in Mammoth is such a great time of year. Not only can you still come up and enjoy hitting the slopes out of Main Lodge, but temps are warmer, the sun is out and the days are longer. This year, thanks to some April storms, the snow is in great shape. It's firmer in the morning and it's softening up into perfect spring corn as the temperatures warm up.

Today we're expecting to operate seven lifts out of Main Lodge, that includes Broadway Express, Stump Alley Express, Facelift Express, Thunderbound, Discovery Chair and the Lower and Upper Panorama Gondola. This weekend, weather & snow permitting we're expecting to add Chair 5 and Chair 23 to that list.

The weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend - so drop what you're doing and head up to Mammoth to enjoy spring in the Sierra. Why not see if you can ski and mountain bike in the same day? Mountain biking trails are beginning to open up at lower elevations - Rock Creek is in killer shape and the snow has mostly melted at Shady Rest Park.
