oh you mean for the college pass.

damn kids git off mah lawn!


and yeah, none of the so cal resorts are really worth a trip. If you're here yeah they're fun. But to plan a ski trip to socal is kinda silly. Mammoth is the way to go fo sho.

unless you're 100% into park., then I guess big bear is it.

Wangta, I remember that weekend myself. Looks like a lot of chair 10, 3 and 5..ahhhhhh..... This year will be better, it simply has to!
Yeah - I was surprised how relatively inexpensive housing is in Mammoth. You can even get something for a decent rate less than a week in advance.

Yeah man - that was an epic weekend! And you know my chairs, haha. Hoping for the best this year - I honestly think it'll be another amazing year for Mammoth and that whole region (Tahoe included).

oh yeah...I think I only missed one powder day last season but that's not saying much. It was a bad year.


when you know the dates you're coming back hit me up! I hope to be there a lot in Jan-Feb this year.

mammoth is also super cheap in the spring if you can swing week day only trips. I've been able to negotiate a cheap weekly rate w/o house keeping at some of the small hotels.

By the time April and May roll around it's already 85-90 down in So Cal. Everyone forgets about snowboarding and starts surfing. Ive had some epic days in April and May with the mountain pretty much to myself. It's crazy.

Two seasons ago it dumped 2 feet on a sunday in May. I watched everyone get the hell out of town EARLY. Everyone is scared to chain up or drive in the smallest amount of snow (LA people don't know what weather is, Im guilty here too) Then monday the only people on the mountain were locals and retirees. And me...

If you have more than 1 day and have a bit of money to work with, go Mammoth, totally worth the drive. Went last year and had a blast.

If you're looking for a day trip or to be more budget conscious, Bear is the way to go. I like Mt High but Bear just keeps their runs better all day. Plus if you schedule in advance you can stay at the hostel for like 20-30 a night depending on the room. Shit, I used a sleeping bag and a few blankets and slept in my car a few times last season.. Just don't sleep in the Bear parking lot, they don't like that.

I rode Bear a couple years ago, and that place is a joke unless you are strictly a park rider or just starting out. Seems like Mammoth would be worth the drive.
