This Is What March Looks Like at Mammoth Mountain

In like a lion, stays like a lion.

Back in February, California’s Mammoth Mountain would have appeared to be hurting. The Sierra was back in a drought, and there wasn’t even snow on the ground in town. But I was there and can testify that the mountain ripped—no bones, no patches, nothing but carvable shred all over the place. Now, though, Mammoth doesn’t have to worry about the delta between perception and reality, because another March miracle has blessed those black craggy peaks: 10 feet of snow has fallen since the first of the month, and it keeps on coming.

Here’s a little peek at what happens when famine turns to feast:

    Awesome! I was in Shaver in February and it might as well have been summer. Gotta get back up to the Sierra before Spring!
