Eastern Sierra Backcountry Ski Conditions


Mammoth Backcountry Skiing / Sherwins Area

The Mammoth area received a nice top up over the weekend and the backcountry is skiing great!  Our guides were out in the Sherwins on Monday finding excellent quality, wintery snow. 

Snow surfaces were roughly 25cm deep, unconsolidated new snow below tree line, which made for manageable skinning and excellent skiing.
