> Mammoth Mountain
It's still snowing at Main Lodge at 6am and the temperature is 12 degrees. Winds are moderate around 17mph. Highs today are in the upper teens. The top is seeing cold single digit temps and strong winds reaching 70mph.

The snow from this storm is some of the lightest we've seen at Mammoth Mountain this year. Boards and skis seem to float effortlessly through it. Visibility may be limited somewhat, but the snow is so good it makes it all worthwhile.

Expect it to keep snowing today with several more inches of accumulation. Our base depth is now 75-95 inches. There is a Winter Storm Watch in effect until Friday morning.

Most lifts are expected to open today except for the upper mountain chairs. 84 runs were groomed last night on nearly 800 acres of terrain. There's something for every powder hound or groomer cruiser.

Please remember that natural and man-made obstacles do exist so always ride with caution.

Everyone's cheeks are looking a little rosier and goggle tan lines a bit more pronounced these days. Could it be because the sun decided to join us for a quick stint before it runs to hide behind powder-heavy clouds again? I, for one, have been soaking up every last little drop of sunshine. But now I'm ready once again for a double-digit snow dump like those we've become so accustomed to this winter. Looks like we may see a few new flakes by mid-day! In the meantime, I think I'll check out the hard work the our trusty groomers have been putting in- 38 runs of fresh courdoroy to choose from! Don't forget to make your way to the Bridger Restaurant on Saturday, the 26th from 2-4pm for the JH Season Passholder Party! -KL Today's safety message: "Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment

Heavenly Valley
Incredible Snow and Great Weather Give Heavenly Dream Conditions

With over 11 FEET of new snow in January, Heavenly has one of the deepest snow packs in the U.S.! This week alone, we've received over a foot of new snow and another three feet is on the way. At 10,067 feet, Heavenly has the highest elevation of any Tahoe resort, resulting in snow that is light and dry. We then run a fleet of snow cats over the whole mountain, grooming our runs wall-to-wall to ensure that our snow surfaces are carveable, making you feel like a World Cup racer. And since this is California, we've always got bluebird skies on the heels of these epic Sierra storms. Conditions couldn't be better, come check them out for yourself www.skiheavenly.com/
