Mammoth Lakes received its first snow of the season on Thursday, Sept 19 as an Arctic weather system dipped anomalously far south for the time of year (which is still summer btw!?).
The system brought lows in the mid-20s overnight Thursday to the region, with Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley and Mt. Rose ski resorts also reporting sizable snow totals at higher elevations.
