Mammoth Mountain Ski Area will remain open daily for skiing and snowboarding through July 4, 2011. After and incredible record breaking year, Mammoth has received 606 inches of snow to date, the most the resort has received in a single season. This will be the fourth out of the last seven seasons the resort has remained open for skiing through July Fourth.
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 skiinfo.com. 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.
This week Mammoth surpassed one million skier/snowboarder visits to date, during the 2010/11 winter season. The late closing date will allow more visitors to ski to all day long or hit the slopes for half a day and then enjoy all the summer activities Mammoth has to offer from golfing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing or splashing in a mountain stream.
Getting to Mammoth is easier than ever with daily flights from Los Angeles, San Jose and San Francisco running through April 24, 2011 and daily service from Los Angeles continuing year-round.
