Mammoth Mountain sporting first signs of winter

October 6, 2010 | 12:38 pm

The Woolly mammoth located behind the main lodge at Mammoth Mountain is blanketed with fresh snow.

It looks as if winter has come to Mammoth Mountain. On Tuesday, about four inches of snow fell at the resort's main lodge, which is at 8,900 feet, meaning that much more likely fell at higher elevations.

While some of that snow melted quickly, another 2-4 inches of snowfall came down Tuesday night, thickening the layer covering the woolly mammoth behind the main lodge. More snow showers are expected Wednesday night above 7,500 feet, and another slightly warmer system should be moving in Thursday.

With the warmer temperatures expected for this weekend, this might be short-lived, but it certainly is nice to look at while it lasts!
