Snow Condition Update – 2/5/2013

Dave's RunI’m just going to call this snow condition update the Mammoth Mountain wind buff report for 2/5 and 2/6. The wind has changed directions and the Mother Nature working her magic all over the mountain. I wouldn’t say it’s consistent across the entire mountain, but if you search you can find consistent lines from top to bottom. 

Dave’s is always a sure fire winner when you get this kind of wind, but you have to choose the right line. If you choose the wrong line you’ll find wind stripped bumps, but the right line will consist of nice chalky snow ranging in a couple inches of smooth wind cream. I heard reports of Cornice, Chair Five, and Chair 3 having similar top to bottom wind sugar. So there are options depending on your ability to find fun, soft snow conditions.

Temperatures are falling with this next little system expected to hit us starting Thursday evening.  2-5 inches is expected over night with unsettle weather through Saturday.

So the conditions are going to be awesome!
