Weekend Ski Report and Round-up from the Sierra

Mammoth Mountain Ca – February 23 2015,  The weekend forecast in the Sierra Mountains was uncertain at best, depending on the station or time we were going to get Snow at Lake level in Tahoe or not. But on this cool crisp Monday  Morning when it finally fills like Winter in the Sierra, the obvious winner of the weekend is skiers that enjoy Mammoth Mountain.
Mammoth recorded over 12″ of new snow in the last 48 hours and this morning it is 11 degrees and looks like it might be still snowing on their webcam.

Daily Message
Currently at Main Lodge it’s 12 degrees with calm winds and it’s still snowing. Mammoth has received 6-8 inches of beautiful, white, fluffy snow and our snow making team is working with Mother Nature to add more coverage mountain-wide. Mammoth has over 115 trails open with access to tons of great terrain for everyone to enjoy. Temperatures are expected to stay cold throughout the day, so bundle up and get up here to explore the hill and enjoy the new snow with us.

Kirkwood and Heavenly both reported 1″ of new snow but that looks like about it for the Sierra. The Banzai Events at Alpine were delayed because of Wind but finished yesterday by making up a makeshift starting gate and getting the party started no matter what the weather.

With the Cold temperatures returning, look for all Sierra Ski Resorts to help mother nature out and fire up the snow machines.
Coming up this weekend on the Slopes:
Sierra at Tahoe – Burton Snowboard Demo Days
Alpine Meadows – USSA U16 Super G competition
Diamond Peak – Face off Friday Rails Jams and Chinese New Year Celebration
Sugar Bowl – Caboose Kickers comp.
