Anyone been up that way? I seem to remember more bitching when there was this little snow in years past. Is anyone else going crazy waiting for rideable conditions???

great storm this last weekend, for wall street... lots of snow at mammoth mountain and june, but north and south didn't get as much. rock creek is minimal coverage, probably not worth the effort. long approaches to high north faces may have some promise, but slogging through the sage might be more trouble than it's worth.

I know mammoth has been getting pounded, but is any of the snow down by rock creek?

Did Bardini Chutes today. Coverage is thin but the north faces are holding dry cold smoke. Bring your rock board and enjoy - 2-3 inches falling outside as I type.
