2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Mammoth or Bust
March 25, 2011
Well, looks like it's my turn to head to Mammoth Mountain this weekend for a little skiing. So me and my much, much, much better half will take off tonight and head up the 395 after the crappy SoCal traffic dies down a bit.
What's cool, though, is that it's looking like we'll be able to give our long-term Mitsubishi Outlander GT's Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel-drive system a good test, as Mammoth's website says they have allegedly been dumped with "4-7 feet of snow" since Tuesday, with "multiple feet" more expected through this Sunday.
I say "allegedly" because the weather forecast both for the town of Mammoth Lakes and for Mammoth Mountain itself is predicting snow totals in terms of inches, not feet. Couldn't imagine that Mammoth's website would stretch the truth on snow accumulations...nah.
Regardless, here's hoping for some major fun in the snow; both on the slopes and during the drive in the Outlander GT.
