Winter Returns: Mammoth Boasts 4-7’ft in Last Storm Cycle

 

Ullr Returns With A Vengance

After a mild and slow start, winter has roared back with a March Miracle storm that has blanketed the mountain and The High Sierra with a beautiful white coat. Mammoth reports 49” inches plus as this latest storm cycle comes to a end.

A busy Saturday morning was interrupted by a inbound avalanche that forced operations on the mountain to shut down. Luckily mountain staff was quickly on scene and everyone was accounted for. The mountain returned to normal operation Sunday, but the signs of the slide were quite apparent on the upper mountain, with a huge crown on Climax.

The High Sierra once again is white and looking the best it has all winter. If traveling into the High Country, please check out the Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center for the latest advisory. www.esavalanche.com

Local reports for the Onion Valley and Whitney Zone vary (due to strong winds ripping thru the area during and post storm) but generally a foot or more snow has accumulated at trailhead elevations. Check back in the near future for updates…
