    The low end of the forecast on OpenSnow right now is 38" for Wed and 16" for Thurs. Assuming the mountain is open I hope you are testing some very wide skis :daffy:! Each storm that passes by I keep more and more seriously considering some May/June skiing at Mammoth!

    I follow Bernie on Instagram and love watching his videos. The guy is an incredible skier, and skis some really gnarly terrain.

    Hey @Core2 , I was out there from AZ in mid January during another decent storm. Also in a Subie with snow tires. We did not need chains.

    You'll love Mammoth and the drive isn't bad at all. We drove over to June Mountain on the 17th , when most of Mammoth was closed down , just to check it out. It looked like a fun place to ski and I regret that we did not return to it for Friday skiing; but Mammoth beckoned us back for the post storm freshies . (well...it called to husband. I wanted to visit June !)

    Actual knives that are sharp! You would be suprised how many places we go that the knives are as sharp as the back side of a butter knife.

    I have trips booked through Mem Day already, need to get camping gear for June/July. And then there's August, which is looking like a real possibility!

    Demo was cancelled....looks like we will be taking the scenic route home. I guess if you come to Mammoth often enough, you will experience these days.

    They could reschedule the Demo for August. The roads should be mostly clear by then.
