    Thank you everyone for their support.

    I started compiling a list for myself as to see what were my skiing options back when I was in university in the late 1980/early 1990. I thought it was ashamed that people were always surprised that there was still skiing in April.

    Once the ski forums started, I renewed my research and itís gotten more extensive in recent years in trying to cover the entire East from North Carolina to Labrador. Individually researching each ski websites and Facebook pages. Sometimes communicating with the ski areas directly.

    I donít post links to promote my site (Wordpress, FB or Instagram). Iíve been posting many of my ski diary among with the rest of my activities (skiing, concerts, travel ... and cats). You can find the IG page, my alias is the same as my IG name. Just finished posting my last ski day, July 1st at Mammoth in several posts.



    Have a great summer everyone.

    Mammoth July 13/14th. Great 2 days. Many different ways to ski the steeps.

    Mammoth is such a great place to ski, the snow still looks pretty good in those pictures. When we were there two weeks ago and they had about 50 trails open and almost the whole top of the mountain which i thought was pretty impressive for that late into the season. They announced skiing into August early this summer but It was just confirmed that Mammoth's last day of the season is going to be July 28th.

    Mammoth is awesome, we went July 2-3 in addition to the week after Easter. Skiing in July was great but I had the opportunity to fly over Mammoth just about two weeks before we arrived on June 20th. The amount of snow loss in that 2 week span was huge.

    This first photo is the overhead from the 20th. You can easily pick out main base and Stump Alley to it's left fully covered.

    This next shot is how Stump Alley looked July 2. Couldn't believe how fast it changed.

    We were there from the 29th through the 2nd of July as well. I wish I had photos but there was a major difference in coverage at Stump Alley just from the 29th through the 2nd. The bottom section shown there was much more filled in on the 29th. The sun really melted out the snow fast. The top half of the mountain held up real well though while we were there.

    Very true on the top, still was great on the 2nd and 3rd. Even down to main base was still great then, though you could tell the Cats had been working hard to bridge up parts of each run down lower. Impressed with the effort they put in that late in the season!
