We spotted 2 crowns today in the Mammoth Lakes Basin. 1 above treeline on a NE aspect and 1 below treeline on an ENE aspect. I did not spot the crown ATL yesterday during good visibility, so maybe that ran overnight or early this morning with the increasing winds? The crown BTL looks older and likely ran during the most recent snowfall.
Wind decreased throughout the day, but was really throwing some snow around off of high ridges this morning. Red Cone bowl looked entirely different than it did 24 hours ago.
Strong winds at ridgetop, decreasing throughout the day. Steady below freezing temperatures.
