Mammoth Mountain says so much snow has fallen this winter that the slopes will be open to skiing and boarding through the Fourth of July, at least.
The popular resort in California’s Eastern Sierra reported Wednesday that the latest storm is adding to its summit season total — which is nearing 38 feet. More than 5 more feet could fall before the current system moves through.

Backcountry Avalanche Warning

The storm packing wind gusts in excess of 130 mph over the top of the Sierra is barreling down on Lake Tahoe.
A winter storm warning is in effect until 10 p.m. Thursday for the Tahoe area, where more than 2 feet of snow is possible in the highest elevations.
A backcountry avalanche warning also has been issued throughout the Sierra.
