If the mammoth area gets 12 inches of snow today and tommorrowwww what do you think the chanse of finding something to skin are? I was thinking Bloody mountain ( the snow ramp not the couloir) . I am going to take my dogs up and wanted to do a short skin(4 to 5 hours) and hike to see how they would do

So would that be a total of 24" of fresh? hmm...you can always head out behind tamarack lodge into Red Cone area. Still might be logs and rocks sticking out...I haven't seen any pictures yet.

There is very little snow below 9,500 feet, and only a trace in town. So you'll probably want to go somewhere that you can drive and park at a high elevation.
I think the road to Minaret Vista is probably the highest you'll be able to drive, and it's a scenic skin up the San Jaoquin Ridge from there. The ground is pretty sandy up there, so it won't take much snow to make it skinnable. Though it could be a little wind scoured.
