2010 Ski-a-thon

March 16th, 2010

What another great weekend we had at Mammoth for the Ski-a-Thon. We had a lot of students, families & instructors come up on the trip.

Since we have had more interest from students wanting to snowboard, Karey put on a great snowboard clinic on Friday morning for our snowboarding instructors. We put on a full day of lessons on Saturday before a well deserved Pot-Luck dinner. Come Sunday morning Brent had setup a challenging slalom course straight down the toughest part of Sesame Street.

I don’t know who was the fastest or who made the most runs, one thing is for sure everyone had a good time. Enjoy the pictures Bernhard & Karen sent in.

Mammoth to Host Olympic Qualifying Event January 8-10

December 21st, 2009

Shaun White celebrates winning the Olympic halfpipe gold medal in 2006 at the Turin Games in Italy.

Mammoth Mountain will host part of the qualifying competitions on the weekend of January 8-10, 2009 as part of the Grand Prix Series of snowboarding. The Grand Prix Series determines who the US will be sending to the Winter Olympics this February in Vancouver British Columbia. The series has already started at Copper Mountain, Colorado on Dec 11-12 with american men & women taking 5 of the 6 podium spots. The final decisions will be made in Park City on the weekend of January 22-23.

I bring this up because this event coincides with our next student trip to Mammoth, this will be a great opportunity to see some of the best in the world competing right in front of the Main Lodge.

December Trip Highlights

December 19th, 2009

Gary sent over some pictures and wrote up some highlights from the trip last weekend. Seems they got a little snow.

      Had an interesting time with the trailer on Saturday. At the end of the day it was buried under about two feet of snow. That wasn’t to bad until a loader came by and left a huge berm of snow (probably about 6 feet) right in front of the trailer. We had to dig about four tons of snow before we could get a possible angle to hitch the trailer. Probably took about 45 minutes to do what we usually do in 10.

     The last picture is from Viewpoint Sunday morning. The snow was pretty heavy and wet, especially in town. It froze overnight and we couldn’t open the doors on the Suburban. The whole truck was coated with about a half inch of ice. It was still snowing pretty hard, with pretty heavy winds Sunday morning. After consulting with Brent and Secretary Bernhard we  decided it would be best to keep everybody in and call it a day. 

     All in all it was a great trip. Al continues to tackle more difficult terrain. Reo and Ia both seemed to enjoy the outing.

Mammoth Opens for 2009-10 Season!

October 19th, 2009

Mammoth Opened last Friday October 16, 2009 for their 2nd earliest opening ever! For those eager enough to get those first tracks in with Wooly, they were also greeted with a warm spell. It was warm enough that Mammoth decided to close today. I received an email this morning, they are going to wait for a little more snow and then open up again…so Think Snow!

Here is a shot I pulled off the Mammoth Mountain Website

2009-10 Opening Day!
