Only three months after completing its remarkable 2016-17 ski season last August, a winter when the snow depth peaked at nearly nine metres/30 feet last January, Mammoth Mountain in California has re-opened for its 2017-18 ski season.
The Broadway Express and some terrain park features were open on day one.
That’s a wrap on opening day. Thanks to all the skiers and riders that came out and celebrated today – we can’t wait to see everyone on the hill this season. Let fun rule! #MAMMOTHSOPEN 🎥 @kevinwestenbarger

So far snow depths have a way to go before they match last winter’s with six inches (15cm) on lower runs and a foot (30cm) up top, with no snow in the short-term forecast at present.
