Really Cool Mammoth Website

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Check this out. It's from the Mammoth ski patrol website. It has a great photo layout of the mountain and interactive images of most of the excellent parts of the hill. For any of you East Coasters who haven't trekked out here, a good overview of Woolly! :

Thank you so much. I'm going to Mammoth for the first time in Jan. These pics give me a much better perspective. I've been trying to figure out the terrain from people's pics and vid posts. Some of those cornices look like pretty hairy drop ins.:

Yes indeedy! This website only shows the parts of the mountain that patrol blasts. It's not all cornices (darn it!). Try clicking on some of the areas on the interactive map. It pulls up a photo of that particular area on the mountain. You can then run your mouse over the picture and it will show you the actual slope pitch, elevation and length of the run. Check out Phillipe's and Kiwi Flats for instance---not for the faint of heart!!!:

Hucking your carcass off cornices is an essential part of Mammoth skiing. Embrace it!

I have such fond memories of Mammoth when I lived in So.Cal. for a couple of years in the early 1980's. In 1983 they closed on August 1!!!

Early opening

In 2004 they opened on Oct. 21 and it was fabulous . . . giant grins on Mammoth employees and guests as well. Hope this season gives us a repeat performance. :

Firstly, thanky doogiedoc!

Johnnyzoo, you're in for the time of your life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We spent 7 days there just after a 120" dump (2 days continuous), 6 BLUE skies, great weather, 1 cold, snowing but still very skiable.

It definitely feels different from any other place I've been to, maybe it's the CA aura? b The trees, people, service, all different in the mos positive way.

Fave runs: Dave's to GoldHill to Quicksilver, and Cornice to Stump Alley. The runs off the Juniper lift are way too lame, spend as little time there as possible. The runs off the easternmost section, up and behind, are quite nice also, and a great place for light lunch.

Spend Saturday or Sunday or any snowy, windy day at June, small but ok for 1 day.

Enjoy!:

Amazing website, and I can only imagine how much effort went into it. I wish more mountains had a site with this kind of detail!
