Yes, the base has been fab this winter. However, if you’re longing for that knee to waist deep powder that flys up in your face when your down weighting, cancel the trip to the Bugaboo’s, Canada, because it is coming to Mammoth Mountain. Beginning later Wednesday afternoon, the snow to water ratios will increase to 15:1 and possibly as high as 20:1 at night. More high Snow to Water ratios will likely continue through out the rest of the week.
This by far will be the highest quality snowfall…so far this year with over 5 feet of it by weeks end!
