Here is a great website for checking the conditions around mammoth. This guy gives a very fair ski report and Some of His photos show areas around town and the crest. Good reference material for BC conditions

plateau chutes looked OK on monday, but it is the approach. no snow lower down. v bowl had a little bit of snow about 1/3 of the way down. if you want to hike up and down half the mountain, then i'm sure the runout from the chutes are minefields
actually, from a distance twinlakes area looked better
My buddy and I headed out to Red Cone Yesterday, super creamy snow up top, skied about 6-8inches, then a little heavier wet snow down low but still edge-able and super fun. We road right out on to Horse Shoe lake to end our tour. Pretty good out there right now, so go get some...

Everyone, meet Max. I can vouch for him. He's a safety first kinda dude...and he is living in June. He's always looking for partners. Hit him up. Can't wait for the TR myself Max. You better save me an HT!
I'll be up there the 21st or so and through Christmas.
