With snowy March, Mammoth Mountain announces lifts to run until Memorial Day

Haven’t gotten to hit the slopes yet this season?

Lifts will be running for at least another two months at Mammoth Mountain, with the resort planning on staying open until at least Memorial Day.

March storms have beefed up the snowpack in the Eastern Sierra mountains, about a six-hour drive from Los Angeles and Orange County. The current base at the summit is estimated to be at 10 feet.

A storm this week added 3 inches to 4 inches of snow on top of the already plentiful 238 inches to 286 inches that have fallen so far this season. Two feet of snow fell the previous week.

January had the biggest snow fall this season, with about 108 inches that came down. March so far has had 53 inches of snowfall.

If it’s anything like last year, there could be more on the way. Last April, prime time for spring skiing, saw an estimated 57 inches added to slopes.

It has not yet been decided if the pond skim and popular Spring Fest will be happening. Several restrictions due to the pandemic are still in place, including limited indoor dining capacity in lodges and social distancing and masks required inside lodges.

In years with consistent, big snow storms, Mammoth Mountain can stay open well into summer months. For updates on snow conditions, go to mammothmountain.com.
