Just did screenshots of all the clickable links in the Mammoth Ski Patrol's Aerial Atlas (http://patrol.mammothmountain.com/Atlas/AtlasIndex/AtlasIndex.html), including path information. Here they are, all in one post:). Collectively, this shows nearly all of Mammoth's steeps.
Here's the overall Atlas:
A duplicate of the above pic of the Wipeouts/Scotty's/Paranoids, without the path info., so you can see the trails:
Chemist, thanks for that... Some of the numbers seem a bit 'wrong', which may be just some inconsistent way of picking the start and end of runs... most obvious are the vertical & run lenghts numbers...
a couple examples:
Climax - vertical is shown as 650 ft with length of 1400 ft - it ends pretty much where Upper Dry Creek ends, Upper Dry Creek starts significantly lower and is 2100 ft vrt & 8,000 ft length - ok if you combine Upper & Dry Creek & Lower and go to the Mill, then maybe you get 2100 ft vrt and 8,000 length - but that way overstates what Upper Dry Creek really is...
take the wipeouts... at 1750 vertical and 6000 ft length - where would that end point be ??? St Anton or chair 23 loading at 1750 ft below Chair 23 top ? not likely and nowhere at 6000 ft length. then moving over to Scottys and paranoids - where do those numbers lead to ? Scotts ends 3/4 mile down somewhere - where would that be?
and Cornice at 1500 vert & 6000 ft length ? where would that be, what am I missing - that 25% avg for over a mile ! ? Dave's mostly being the same overall is only 600 vert & 2000 ft length (2000 might be stretching it a bit...) ... and cornice needs to be renamed to 'bowling alley' ...
incline measurements are hugely affected by the snow/depth. Back when the 50ft season happened, most blacks were mostly Blue. Even now, this year, many blacks are so filled in they really are adv-int for the most part.
Anyway, the numbers just don;t seem to be consistent. I think it's fair to measure from the start/top to where a run/face hits either a drainage run or a lift, for the chair 23 faces, that would be either St Anton or bot of chair 23 (which would not be the case for Scottys or over towards Phillipes... their drainage is lower, but not all the way to mainlodge).
anyway numbers are numbers and not the experience.
