LOTS more snow on the way.
24 May 2019 – After receiving a record amount of snow for May, Mammoth Mountain announced that it will stay open into August.
Only two previous seasons have lasted into August – 2017 and 1995 – according to Mammoth Snowman.
Mammoth has already received 29 inches of snow, the most ever recorded in the month of May, beating the previous record of 28 inches set in May 2015. And there’s still a week to go in the month.
The latest storm brought an additional 9 to 10 inches of snow, including three inches in the past 24 hours … just in time for Memorial Day.
The resort anticipates snow each day over the holiday weekend, including 6 to 12 inches on Sunday, according to Mammoth’s website.
For the season, Mammoth has received 489 inches of snow at Main Lodge and an incredible 715 inches at the summit.
