After a record breaking season, it’s no surprise that a lack of snow could be a possibility and that’s certainly the case with Mammoth Mountain right now. The conditions are early season limited runs with hardpacked snow but luckily the park is on-par. It just means sleeping in a little bit longer and hoping the snow will soften up by the time you get up. I headed up to the mountain for a session with the skier and to get in some park laps on the Wasteland.
Icy hardpacked, windblown, manmade snow on the mountain right now.
I’ve been testing out the Arbor Wasteland in the park this week. This was a reader request, so make sure you tell me what you want me to ride.
Most of the day I lapped through Forest Trail park or spent time with the skier in Main Park to get shots of him. Here’s my favorite with the classic Mammoth view in the background.
