Mammoth Lakes received its first snow of the season, getting blanketed overnight Saturday. Residents awoke to the first day of fall Sunday to find 4 to 6 inches on top, 2 to 3 inches at Main Lodge and about an inch at Canyon.

This all comes with fewer than 50 days until Mammoth’s Nov. 7 opening of ski season.

Opening weekend at Mammoth will feature live music, park contests and a movie. The focal point in the Village will  be the Underground Lounge, which is new for this year and will have a SoCal vibe with an alpine twist.

June Mountain, the family-friendly resort just minutes north, is reopening Dec. 13 after being closed last season. June’s slightly lower elevation means a later opening date, spokesman Tim LeRoy said Monday. Note that kids will ski free at June all season.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has called for average temps and snow totals this winter for most areas of the nation.
