    Mammoth picked up another 30-odd to 40-odd inches of snow in the last 48 hours.

    ...and that’s not even the start of the impending systems of this week.
    Blizzard conditions RN.

    Mammoth Lakes, above 8000ft are expecting 2-5 feet of new snow.
    It's already dropping heavy snow tonight.

    Here's EC's forecast on the summit (don't mind the winds though):

    12-26" storm total for Mammoth mountain now. Still flogging it down on the cams ATM.
    Warm system, with some good rainfall in the lower reaches of the resort though.

    With the deepest snowpack in the country, Mammoth has announced resort will remain open until 4th July - big call 4.5 months out.

    Gee you'd think they could have used a better photo to represent it, I can't even tell what that first one is!

    I think there comes a point where it genuinely is a whiteout, to shoot freakishly deep snowfalls. No doubt the coming days will reveal more.
    Here's another:
