The skies have finally cleared (for now) in the Eastern Sierra, and Mammoth Mountain is working on snow removal and avalanche control.

Mammoth Mountain has received 524 inches of snow at Main Lodge this season and 673 inches at the summit.

This year is Mammoth’s second-deepest snowfall in 10 years.
