|killclimbz||It was just a thought. Sometimes if you look a few miles out of the main town you find killer deals. Almont close to Crested Butte is one of those spots. Anyway, it does sound a bit much. Which is too bad.|

June employee housing was in Mammoth and there was a shuttle between the two. Non employees could ride for 15 bux round trip. So it meant getting up super early to catch the bus and then sitting on the bus with lifties. I've taken the bus from mammoth to june in a storm. Riding a bus with chains is GOOD TIMES!
I have a feeling bus service is going to be discontinued this season With AWD it won't be bad but gas is currently 4.79 a gallon in LA. Im sure it's even more in the sierras.

|killclimbz||The town of June is pretty close right? Since June mountain is not going to be running the lodging operators around there are probably going to be pretty desperate to book their accommodations. I bet you can get some screaming deals there. You might even find lift ticket deals for Mammoth through them. If they are not in a pissing match with Mammoth over the whole June debacle.|

more stoke :D
we can also call this one "waiting for the top to open"
it dumped 3 feet the night before and patrol was still bombing. If you look you can see the gondi and ch 23 to the top.
main park. There was a competition that day.

Somewhere there was a misunderstanding. I wouldn't not go to mammoth because of a slow chair lift. I know people personally who go down there once a year.

there are tons of quads and a gondola. I usually don't have time for pix when Im riding those.
I figured that my sarcasm would be detected, as....well, it is know as a pretty good resort....anyway, I don't mind the slower chairs cos it gets you to some good tree runs that a lot of people don't know about or don't want to trek to. The backside can be a bit of a journey to get to/from if you're based out of main lodge. But it's well worth it on a powder day because not many people venture back there.
Id rather stay back there then fight the supercool broskis at the top for pow, esp on the weekends. I also assumed that anyone considering going to mammoth would you know, look at the trail map or something. anyway...I wasn't trying to bamboozle anyone.
tyler, keep planning your thing. someone asked if there were cheaper ways and I said yes but to ask in another thread. I am sure your meet up will be awesome but it IS pricey. Im not trying to steal people from your meet up, but rather encourage others who might want to visit mammoth during some other time.
I am always looking for peeps to ride with, I know the area really well and am always happy to hook people up when I can. Im not trying to be negative about your meet up, I sweeeeeeeeear! And I will mostly like be there anyway, as I don't work in the spring and spend most of those months riding. The last two years I've pretty much lived in Mammoth for the month of May.

What are you talking about? I was simply commenting on the picture someone posted. It had a long ass 2 chair lift in it.
Reminded me of a couple of mountains close to home is all.

|killclimbz||I am pretty sure Mammoth has plenty of high speed quads. You've been bamboozled...|
