This is just what the town and mountain need right now . Just be careful and remember that this may be their only trip to the snow for the year and don't have any winter experience .

These are people coming to Mammoth for a vacation and are going to spend money in town and on the hill. We should embrace them and help them out anyway we can.

I wish everyone in those pictures blue bird days and the most awesome meals and service at the local restaurants.

Come to June and mention OGT in the Tiger and get a drink on me....


Please understand, I was not specifically bagging on them. I was trying to point out that the way they are parking on 203 is
dangerous. Tourons or not, pull way off the road to avoid anything unfortunate.

I wasn't directing my post at you CK. A few people seemed to think those frame grabs were funny. As a long time professional driver I didn't see the humor there. Plus a couple of weeks ago I had a scary incident on the 395 between Mammoth and June.

I take back my giggle, though I'd like to clarify that it was in based on how they were parked, not what they were going through. Having lived in the mountains for over a decade I'd seen that sight countless times, but never parked like that.

Tuna please throw up a WV loop to let people know the deal. We've got a fun cut off low to track this weekend...

I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

Mammoth Town Council votes to approve the TBID, which is going to tax a tourist when he visits town, then use the proceeds from the tax to encourage him to come back and visit again? :D

Today couldn't have been a more perfect day for MMSA! The weather was ideal, the snow was amazing, and the thousands of "tourons" (not my term...) had to have had a great time. Congrats to MMSA for having their stars align. This will definitely bring folks back for repeat trips in early 2013!

OK, now back to the weather...

Hopefully that gets fixed soon!

In the mean time there's the Euro and it's just showing a high pressure ridge bringing Mammoth beautiful blue skies and perfect mid-winter conditions for the next week after this little coast hugger moves out.
It has to snow again eventually...right???

dweeber/snowman/WG,

any take on the current MJO and its projected path to phases 5 & 6? In a +PNA can this be a good thing?

The GFS is back. It shows a continued wet period through the first week of January but no major storms. Looks like the January thaw will come later if it comes.

Just in case anyone wants to know, it's snowing again. :clap:
