California’s Mammoth Mountain will extend skiing into August

MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. (AP) – The Mammoth Mountain resort in California’s Eastern Sierra says it has had its snowiest May on record and skiing and boarding will continue into August.

The resort said Friday the 29 inches that have fallen so far this month bests the old mark set in May 2015.

Another 6 to 12 inches of snow is expected to fall on Sunday.

The resort had so much snow during winter that it announced skiing and boarding would continue through the Fourth of July weekend. It now plans to extend the season into August, with no specific end date set.

As of Friday, Mammoth had a season accumulation of 715 inches at the summit and 489 inches at the main lodge.
