Mammoth Open Until July 4th (Again) (08-May-11)

Thanks to a record-breaking snow year...

Thanks to a record-breaking snow year, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area will remain open daily for skiing and snowboarding through to July 4th, 2011, the US Independence Day holiday.

Mammoth has received more than 600 inches of snow in the 2010-11 season, the most the resort has received in a single season.

With 15-25 feet of packed snow, Mammoth has also earned the recognition of having one of the highest recorded base depths of any ski resort in the world according to The snow totals will ensure phenomenal spring skiing conditions that will last well into early summer.

Throughout the season, Mother Nature has continued to live up to the La Niña expectations,
blanketing Mammoth Mountain’s 3,500 skiable acres with stunning amounts of powder.

Due to the record-breaking snowfall in Mammoth and throughout the Sierra, Gov. Jerry Brown has declared an end to the drought that has faced California since June 2008. Mammoth is currently at 157% of its seasonal average to date for precipitation.

Mammoth is no stranger to skiing through Independence Day; the resort has remained open for skiing through July Fourth four out of the last seven seasons.
