I LOVE Mammoth Mountain!!!
Holy cow, have you been to Mammoth yet? It is such a crazy fun mountain and you need to go there immediately (If they have pow).
Here’s how it began:
We saw that California was getting dumped on, and having the Mountain Collective Pass, we had to decide: Squaw Valley or Mammoth… Mammoth predicted more snow, so Mammoth it is. We left at 11 pm on Friday night and arrived at 7am Saturday. Epic powder, endless terrain variations, and incredible views. The tree runs were some of the best in my life! But then, we go to chairs 13 and 14 I believe and you see what you’re about to ride down and you almost want to jump off the lift to get to it sooner.
Here are some pictures:
We were planning on sleeping in the truck but it was freezing, so we stayed at a motel, it was warm and had bad coffee… I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
On our very last run of the day on Sunday, it was a complete whiteout; there may have been a chance I almost went off the side of a cliff, I have no idea. SoI went immediately to the first trees I saw and had an amazing run! I wish I could give more detail the the whereabouts of all my amazing runs but I honestly don’t remember, but as long as there is powder, my experience is that every run is amazing!
I felt like the Mammoth Mountain Matron when I was up there, and I can’t wait to go back. Mammoth, you have a piece of my heart.
