Over five feet of snow fell in a 10-day period, courtesy of a Nor’easter, with 25 inches of super light powder greeting skiers on February 13, 2017.
To recap, the last two weeks have seen huge snowfall across the Sierra, with Mammoth clocking in at 13-19 feet and a current base depth of 269″ at the summit; the deepest in North America by almost 60″.
And it’s not over yet! More snow (a lot more) is forecast for later this week with another 5-6 feet on the way over the next week. It’s a good time to be in Mammoth.
Japan is home to some of the best powder on the planet. When cold air blows east off the Asian continent, it sucks up massive amounts of moisture as it flows over the Sea of Japan. When it impacts the high alpine of Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, it unloads snow in the greatest example of “Lake Effect” precipitation of the planet. Those who’ve experienced this phenomenon will say, across the board, that Japan’s powder is phenomenal. The best on Earth.
