Yesterday was a powder day at Mammoth Mountain, CA.

Today was a wind-buff day.

The day started out cloudy, foggy, windy, and cold.

So, we waited.

I had an early morning interview with Fox Weather that tired me, so I was happy to wait for the sun to come out.

Sure enough, the sun came out in the afternoon, and they opened the upper lifts, so I zipped out to the hill.

I met with Owen Leeper, and we had a blast ripping wind-buff laps off Chair 23.

After a handful of those, we headed to the park to spin 3s and goof off on all the fun features down there.

All in all, it was a great day.

Sunshine, wind-buff, and 360s.
