After a hefty early-season storm that blanketed the mountains of Northern California with snow, we have our first ski resort opening of the season.
Mammoth Mountain used the brand-new snowfall, along with temperatures perfect for snowmaking, to announce they will open for a day on the slopes on November 5th. They expect to operate 2-3 lifts with access to 2-3 runs and a small Unbound Terrain Park.
“Mother Nature, don’t tempt us with a good time! ?? Fresh snow, cold temps and the best operating team in the business means we’re opening early, AGAIN,” the ski resort wrote on Instagram.
All operations will be based out of Main Lodge and no beginner terrain will be available. The team will continue to make snow in order to prolong the early opening and possibly expand the terrain.

Winter has officially arrived in Northern California!
