MAMMOTH LAKES, CA – A March storm hit Mammoth with mid-winter force, dropping over 60 inches of new snow on the ski resort and pushing the season snowfall total over 500 inches. The new snow brought Mammoth’s total base depth up to a massive 16-18 feet, setting up for excellent spring conditions and a snow pack that is expected to last into July.

Season to date, Mammoth has received 508 inches of snow, and the storm is expected to continue through the end of the week, clearing up just in time for Easter weekend. Mammoth has the most diverse terrain in California, averages 400 inches of snow and a skiing and snowboarding season that extends an average nine months each year.
