Avalanche cannons were blasting Monday, as Mammoth Mountain dug out from another 4 feet of weekend snow. In the midst of that, more snow arrived Monday with white-out conditions continuing. As much as 4 additional feet were predicted by the time the storm passes Tuesday morning, giving a total since Saturday of up to 8 feet of new snow.
The recent blasts raised the season’s total snowfall to 308 inches; the base at Main Lodge is 110 inches. The resort reports a base of 165 inches at the top of the hill.
Locals expect skiing to continue until July 4.
