The big news of the Memorial Day holiday? The weather. Sweltering heat transformed into winter again with snow in Mammoth Lakes. The snowfall ruined a number of planned outdoor events but a foot of fresh snow did extend ski season for another week.
Mammoth Mountain currently reports a base depth of 2 to 5 feet of snow and legendary spring conditions. www.mammothmountain.com
A foot or so of new snow in many places left the reality of winter wonderland close at hand.
