According to the LA Times, Shaun “The Flying Tomato” White, 29, has bought a minority stake in the company who runs Mammoth Mountain ski resort in California. That company is called Mammoth Resorts and they recently acquired Snow Summit and Bear Mountains ski resorts in SoCal for a cool $38 million. Mammoth Resorts also owns June Mountain, CA.
Shuan made a “seven digit” investment into Mammoth Resorts according to Mammoth CEO Rusty Gregory.
“As a part owner of Mammoth Resorts, White will help oversee the operation of more than 4,000 acres of skiable land in California, visited by more than 2 million skiers and snowboarders each year.” – LA Times
Shaun is already pitching ideas on how to get more visitors up to Mammoth’s resorts including more music festivals and events.
“We think he is the exact right guy to sit at the table with us and move culture in Southern California,” Rusty Gregory, Mammoth Resorts’ CEO told the LA Times
Shaun is from San Diego and has spent a lot of time at Mammoth over the years. It would be really cool to see Shaun bring more music and events to Mammoth. The SnowBrains crew lives in Mammoth every May and the place is simply unreal.
“It’s like a homecoming to me.” White told the LA Times
