LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mammoth Mountain says there’s been so much snow this winter that its slopes will still be open to skiers and boarders by the time most people are enjoying their summer beach vacations.

The resort in the Eastern Sierra says by Friday the main lodge recorded 35 feet — and counting. Mammoth says that’s enough snow to keep the lifts running until at least July 4.

More than 20 feet fell during January alone. And more snow is predicted for the weeks to come.

The Los Angeles Times says that in 2010-2011, when the resort also stayed open until July 4, snowfall totaled almost 56 feet.
