Mammoth Mountain is Open for Winter

Date Posted: 11th Nov 2013

Whilst European resorts eagerly await their December openings following huge snowfalls over the weekend, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area celebrated 60 years at their 2013/2014 season opening.

Skiers and snowboarders took to the hill on Thursday as Mammoth Mountain Ski Area opened for winter 2013/14. The first chair broke through the opening banner at 8.30am, then guests were welcomed by Mammoth Mountain CEO Rusty Gregory, who spoke about the history of Mammoth and Dave McCoy’s dream. “Mammoth is about you and that’s the way Dave started it 60 years ago today.”



Mammoth has a base depth of 12-18 inches of natural and manmade snow already thanks to an early season storm and cold temperatures, which have allowed for pristine snowmaking conditions. 4 Chairlifts are now running with 6 accessible pistes covering approximately 1500 vertical feet. The Unbound Terrain Parks crew built a jump, a handful of jibs and a small playground area in Main Park for freestylers, while chair 11 services the beginner area that allows all abilities a taste of their favourite winter sport.



Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is the leading four season mountain resort in California. With 1.3 million annual skier visits, Mammoth Mountain is currently the third most frequented ski resort in the US.

Here is Mammoth Mountain Team Rider Greg Bretz taking full advantage of the opening day in the Unbound Park:
