Snow making: Each year the snow making crew comes on board around the 20th of October to start getting ready for the opening day blow. Crews need temperatures in the mid to upper 20s for snow making to be effective. Snowman will be watching and reporting when snow making is on or off in just a few short weeks. You can learn more about mammoth mountain snow making here.
Opening Day is closing in fast, I have to ask all of you reading this are you getting in shape? Now is the time to take action for the fresh winter season that is coming upon us.
