A summit photo taken on Jan. 18 shows an impressive amount of snow. Some eight feet have fallen at the Mammoth Mountain summit in the last week, and 12 feet in January 2019 so far.

How was the iconic mammoth statue looking on the morning of Jan. 21? In a word: cold. The season snowfall at the resort's Main Lodge, which is a short walk from this statue, is 174 inches.
