  1. Thanks for the compliment. I definitely have plenty of crap to say.

    If the enviroMENTALists didn’t have their claws so well engrained in California we could be reading a story about the 15 resorts in the Sierras that top out at over 12,000’.

    Too bad. So sad. Missed opportunity. Looking forward to the days when mammoth is one of the only mountains left that still get snow.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
