Mammoth 11/17/07

Anticipating (great?) conditions.

This weekend i’m doing a lot of sit-ups and some extra jogging to prepare for the adventure that will begin on Wednesday morning at 8:30am. November 8th, was opening day for the 2007-2008 winter season, only the main lodge is open now with one chair servicing the early birds until Tuesday Nov. 21st when two more lodges will open hopefully along with several more lifts. The snow report says that there is an 8-14 inch base but from looking at the webcams, conditions look pretty bleak. Temperatures are too high to make snow tonight so I’m hoping for some favorable changes in the next couple days.
