Mammoth Locals enjoyed a chilly dry Friday with winter ski and board conditions on 12 to 18 inches of fresh powder.  The mountain is open for skiing and boarding from 7:00AM to 2:00PM daily.

The next weather system has another smaller subtropical connection that will allow for another 6 to 12 inches of snowfall on Mammoth Mt, Saturday night through Sunday.  For those skiing and boarding Sunday, expect cold, winter like conditions on Mammoth Mt, so plan according.  The QPF forecast updated for California Rivers Forecast center suggests up to an inch and a quarter of precip just west of the Mammoth Crest.  Some 3 to 5 inches of snowfall is possible at the Village at Mammoth between Saturday night and Sunday night.  The series of cold storms innated by the MJO over the El Nino Base state earlier in the week is thought to be at least, partially responsible for the unusually cold unsettled weather for mid May. The Cold unsettled weather is likely to continue through mid week…..and possibly beyond…..

The first half of the new week looks to be cold, breezy and blustery. Snow showers are possible….Especially mid week….
