After 270 Days, Mammoth Mountain Closes Out 2nd Longest Ski-Season

It's the final countdown. 

The second-longest ski season in Mammoth Mountain history is coming to a close on Sunday as the resort shuts down operations after being open for 270 days. 

The resort is celebrating the milestone with plans to give away coffee, doughnuts and other schwag at the bottom of Face Life Express. 

The remaining runs listed as open say conditions are good with 'summer corn snow.' Climax, Saddle Bowl, Cornice and Gremlins Gulch are the only ski runs that are still open according to Mammoth Mountain's website. 

The winter season was very good for the resort located about five hours north of Los Angeles. The area received around 618 inches of snow at its main lodge, with more than 800 inches reported at the summit. The season is only a few days shorter than the first place winner in 1994-95, when the mountain was between October 8th and August 13th. 

If you're already feeling the itch to strap the skis back on, take heart - the 2017-18 season begins in less than 100 days on November 9th.
