Is Mammoth afraid of the Gathering?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Just saw a promotion on the Mammoth website for buy one, get one free lift ticket.

 

But look at the fine print!  

"Offer valid through end of season or 5/31/14. Black-out dates: 2/15/14, 2/16/14, 3/22/14 – 3/29/14."

 

WTF?

That is the week of my son's spring break at Cal Poly SLO and may be spring break week for other CA universities on the quarter system. That could be the reason that week is blacked out. Or it could be due to So CA grade and high school schedule, something I know nothing about.

To be honest I suspected as much. Set me up and then disappointed me though.

I always thought spring breaks other than the New England president's week were too scattered to be a "thing". Guess not.

LAUSD spring break starts April 14th. I'd guess it has to do with Cal State/UC spring break schedules.

Or both. That is why candles have two ends, after all.

That's my reaction too.  Mammoth in particular for that sort of thing is ideal.

Yup all cal state schools and universities of cal on spring break. stay away from the base and arrive early.  the mountain is so big it usually still feels uncrowded midweek spring break. I was there last year and it wasn't bad, especially at the top
