Today was Mammoth’s closing day. Girls were in Bikinis, people were in costumes, and all we did was train-ski and start sluffalanches and do pond crossings at the base of Chair 23.
The skiing was great from start to finish today. The last gondola was at 2pm and it transported you to a bizarre snowball fight-BBQ-last run of the year party. 200 snowball throwers were on top of Mammoth split into two teams: North and South. We were on team North and there was some carnage. I took a snowball to the face and liked it. Nice throw, dude.
After everyone’s arm was thrown out, a big group of of skiers assembled into vicious sluffalanche train and dropped. I can assure you that it’s fun to lay in wet sluff as it flows and bounces over moguls.
From there we hit our last pond skim of the year.
May in Mammoth was unreal this year. Thanks Mammoth.
