So far this January is the 2nd snowiest on record for Mammoth. Only 18 more inches is needed to set a new record which should happen by Friday or Saturday.

That record doesn't include January 1969 which was likely a similar or higher amount.

This has the potential to be a great thread. Come on guys, start pulling out the charts and graphs to disprove each other and turn this into something political.

1969 was special in so many ways. It's the winter of surf that all other winters are judged by. I've seen pictures of Mammoth that winter, wow...

I'm assuming it happened....20 to 30 inches new. Waiting for a SnS confirmation.

Joanie Lynch just confirmed it on Channel 5 this morning.
Going outside to let the water hose run now. Might even spray off the driveway! Droughts over....

Only the January drought is over. You'll have to go back to conserving in two weeks...

Does Mammoth overstate its actual snowfall? Looking at the various webcams early this morning did not appear to support the 20-30 inches claim. Perhaps a foot (when watching snow being cleared from sundecks, etc)? Anyone on location that can confirm or deny the reports?

I have seen and wondered the same. Does Mammoth have actual snow depth gauges such as this one at Powder Mountain, Utah?http://www.powdermountain.com/site-media/webcams/snowstake.jpg?0.606184486358872

Yes-

It is located at 9,000' Typically you can add about 40% for what is up top at 11,053' (actually it is now 11,072' with all the snow stacked up there.

I like this one better. More of a visual impact, day or night.
