Mammoth Lakes, Calif. – Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is pleased to announce it plans to be open for skiing and snowboarding through Memorial Day weekend. Officially the longest ski season in California, Mammoth will once again deliver some of the best spring terrain in the country.

With a 27-year streak of skiing and riding through Memorial Day weekend, Mammoth Mountain is committed to offering top to bottom terrain through late May.

“Although winter got off to a slow start, the past month brought a series of strong storms with nearly 100 inches of snow, and more in the forecast this week,” said Mammoth Mountain CEO Rusty Gregory. “With excellent conditions typical of this time of year, we look to continue our long-standing tradition of skiing and riding well into May.”

To celebrate, Mammoth has a jam-packed spring event calendar with all-ages activities on and off the hill. Events such as the JLA Banked Slalom, Mammoth Invitational, Grenade Games 10, Pond Skim and the annual Easter celebration are back in addition to new offerings like Spyder’s massive “Where’s the Party?” concert at Canyon Lodge.

Mammoth currently has a base depth of 4 – 6 feet and 100% of terrain open. A series of storms are forecast over the next week with 8-10” of new snow having fallen since early this morning. For the latest snow conditions, travel information and event details, visit http://www.mammothmountain.com/.
