Mammoth Opening Day



    SUNNY TO SNOWY: In just half a day. If you've been enjoying the last few brisk days around Southern California, you can only imagine what these cooler temps and rainy clouds have meant for the Sierra up north. In a word: snow. In three words: lots of snow. And here are a bunch more words you should also like, if you're one who is mad about the mountains: Mammoth opens for the season on Thursday, Nov. 11. 

    14-20 INCHES: Of "fresh," says the resort. Fresh, lovely, cold, ski-able snow. Get more info and follow what's happening at the Mammoth MountainFacebook page.
