32's Brian Cook just got back with another Resort Update! Looks like April showers bring May powder.
Mammoth Mtn normally stays open until mid June or even July 4th. But not this year, earlier this week Mammoth Mtn set a closing day of May 26th, Memorial Day. They have a base of 2 to 5 feet but with soaring gas prices and the warm temps down south it's time to call it quits.
Knowing this was my last chance to go snowboarding before the summer heat drains the life out of me, I grabbed my snowboard, packed the car, grabbed some new boots to test out and headed out on the five hour drive from Orange County CA to Mammoth Mtn. The drive was super windy and I thought to my self this might have been a bad idea. But when I woke up this morning, Thursday, May 22nd with over 5 inches of snow on my car and the snow was still coming down. I kicked my gear on and headed out the door. Only in Mammoth do I get to ride powder in May.
Headed straight to the Unbound office, grabbed Chris Zajes and headed on the hill.
They have a spring pipe and four rails and boxes set up off of Face Lift (Chair
3) But what I didn't know was they still have Forest Trail open with two super fun jumps, and 4 more rails, bonks and boxes, which I thought the heat would have melted a long time ago... but I was wrong.
Also they had Stump Alley open with great coverage.
If you want to get some mid winter riding in, head up to Mammoth before Memorial Day!
