Default Already better then last year-a few pics from mammoth

well, it's not been a fantastic year here in California but Thanksgiving weekend this year was better then January last year! I wasn't going to post any pics as they're really not so hot..... but after seeing some pics of what Colorado looks like? I figured any snow is better then no snow and I'd share some minor stoke. Note, I suck as a photographer and all I have is a crappy iPhone.

Y'all in canada and the PNW can shut the hell up about your powder! If the sierras don't see some serious snow soon I'll be headed up that way. I have the month of January off work and I will find some damn snow if it kills me.



Wedsensday sucked hard. My first day of the season and it was raining. I did two runs and said fuck this! No pix lol.

Thursday and Friday were pretty good riding. No powder but carvable hard pack and fast groomers. This dude was ripping it up, and jumping over the rocks. I wish I was as good as he was. These two are from inside the gondola



Good Morning!! I never get sick of this view.


Some runs on the back side....

On saturday I decided to skip the resort and day trip to mono lake. Did some meditation, some yoga and then got my car dirty





sunday I rode the back side of the mtn. Had it almost to myself. Nice spot for a smoke break eh?

OHMYGAWD you're killing me.


OMGOOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG

so the first pic is that the top of Broadway? And Pic three is chair 10, right?

DO THEY HAVE CHAIR NINE OPEN?

I guess I could go look at the website..... I could spend all day riding chair 9 (i have actually)

Are chairs 22 and 23 open!??! Is the top open??

Oh that shot of your board sunk at Mccoys!!! Fucking rad.

I'm leaving tomorrow at 3-4 am and staying until Thursday. I'd have gone up sooner but I didn't have lodging worked out quite yet. That's now taken care of for the season whew.

Being from the midwest I just cant comprehend a 3 foot snow fall.
3" is a average storm here and people get goofy to ride in that.

Just another reason to try to plan a family trip to a real mountain. You guys enjoy, our local hills made as much snow as possible to see mid 50s today and possibly a high of 60 tomorrow. This could be a record temperature for December for us...
