Mammoth Mountain extends ski season into June

Not yet ready to put the snow gear away?

Summer might be around the corner in Southern California, but the snow on some slopes is still good enough to keep lifts going a while longer.

Mammoth Mountain announced on Monday, May 16, the resort is extending its ski season into June following a series of storms that dropped more than three feet of late powder, according to an announcement.

No closing date has been announced, with Mammoth set to continue operations as conditions allow, officials said. “The Eastern Sierra resort is known for its excellent spring (and summer) snow and its commitment to keeping the lifts turning as long as possible.”

The current base depth is 18 inches at the mountain’s Main Lodge and 42 inches at the summit. The total season snowfall this year has been 260 inches, beating last year’s 244.5 inches of snow measured.
