Today, August 6, 2017, Mammoth Mountain will officially close for the 2016-17 winter season. That’s right—after 270 days of skiing and snowboarding over the past nine months, the California resort will shut down its lifts until November 9, marking its second longest season on record.

Statistics from resort officials estimate that Mother Nature blessed Mammoth with 800-plus inches at the summit and 618 inches of snowfall at the base lodge, the second-most snowfall in a single season, yielding to 2010-11, which boasted a total 668 inches of fresh flakes at the base. However, this winter provided the most snowfall ever for Mammoth in the month of January—an amazing total of 245 inches fell in just 31 days—providing seemingly bottomless base across the mountain’s 3,500 skiable acres.
