Carving on Steroids with Tyler Chorlton

Tyler Chorlton‘s carve game is extra juiced. Watch him rip his directional board across Mammoth’s open groomers, and in the park. Impressive board control to say the very least.

Mammoth Mountain Hosts a Day of September Riding For Employees Only – Time to rethink career options.

Words by Justin Romano

Riding a resort in the Northern Hemisphere is not the most typical thing in the month of September. Unless you work for Mammoth Mountain Ski Area who is having one hell of year with snow coverage. Coming off a blanketing of up to 8″ of fresh the previous week, the Mammoth Mountain team saw the best opportunity for a private employee party and shred session. Multiple snow cats gave ecstatic riders lap after lap on the corduroy lined Saddle Bowl and St. Anton, which was made up of leftover snow from last season and our recent storm. The stoke was high as many people added another notch onto their tally for full year of riding every single month in-resort. Butters, turns, carves, side-hits and all the other usual early season antics were a plenty to get everyone jonesing for another season to commence  November 9th. Top it all off with a taco and beer party at McCoy Station, and you have one righteous day to be a Mammoth employee and shredder.

First Snow at Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth Mountain – Fresh Snow Freak Out!

Mammoth Mountain in California is reporting their first flakes of the season. Mother Nature recently blanketed the resort with a fresh coat of white, and it’s remarkably more than a dusting.

The new snow fell on September 21st,  just a little over a month after Mammoth closed for the season on August 8, 2017. Last season marked Mammoth’s second longest winter on record. It was monumental. Over 7+ feet of snow fell in January alone, and the totals kept piling up, making it ones of the deepest seasons in recent memory.

This new snow may be a  great foreshadowing of what is potentially to come this season.

Mammoth Mountain Closes After Second Longest Season Ever

Words and photos by Javier Silva

Mammoth Mountain closes for their second longest season in resort history right behind 94′-95′ when the lifts stopped running on August 14th after opening early October. Riding Mammoth on the last day usually the signifies the beginning of summer but this season was different, summer is almost over and the final laps just ended at the resort. In total Mammoth stayed open for about 270 days. This season will most definitely go down in the history books, not necessarily for being the second longest, but for the endless powder days with a total snow accumulation of 618′ inches.

In total there were two lifts open, Face Lift Express (Chair 3) and Chair 23. From Chair 3, Saddle Bowl was going off and 23 gave access to Cornice Bowl, or what was left of it. And although you had to take the gondola up to mid station and walk to Chair 3, nobody can complain about the small price for the extended season.

The usual last day shenanigans occurred. There was lots of booze, spraying, and plenty of skin. The park staff was kind enough to set up a couple of features for the park rats that made it out for closing day. We couldn’t have asked for anything better, it was a perfect bluebird day and somehow the snow managed to hold itself together till the final run. After the lifts closed at noon, people made their way to the McCoy Station sundeck, the bar of choice. It’s bittersweet to close the books on this season, but November 9th has already been announced for opening day of the 17′-18′ season, so we guess we’ll see you in a few months up at Mammoth!

Dank Plank – End of Season Sidehits

Dank Plank – Summer Sidehits at Mammoth

Riding it out until they no longer can, Ron Forth, John Centi, Mitch Nowicki, Braden Beane, Jeremy page, and Brandon Tyler found many of the rock hits, chunder piles, and snow ledges that Mammoth Mountain has to offer. Dwindling snow won’t stop the Dank Plank squad from lapping as much as possible, for another week or so at least.

Mammoth Mountain to Close After Second Longest Season On Record

Mammoth Mountain has had one hell of a season, but things are finally coming to a close. After 270 days, Mammoth Mountain’s 2016-17 snowboard season will end on August 6.

There’s still time for you to get a couple laps in, as Mammoth will still be open daily and running lifts until closing day. This is the second longest season on-record, spanning from November 10 through August 6th.

Throughout this season, Mammoth received 618” of snow at the Main Lodge, and over 800” at the summit. This was the second most snowfall the resort has ever received in its 65 years of operations.

Mammoth will open again for the 2017-2018 season on November 9th, just a 100 day after closing.
