    Totally agree, easily the best days of the season for me and it’s uncrowded!

    Thanks for the mention Philpug! For the Spring we’re offering a 5pm checkout with a 3 night stay. If you’re in Mammoth for a race, a clinic/camp, or just want to ski first thing in the morning on your last day and pack up later, check us out.

    Do you mean like this? Map

    I still think it's worth it for a May trip. There will still be a lot of great terrain open up top - Gondi and chair 23- for when the bottom gets too soft and still plenty down low for a really fun morning. California spring skiing is just sensational after this much snowfall!

    We miss you! I hope all is well.

    As for everybody who is worried about lodging ... this is pretty good if you don't mind hostels. Midweek it's around $110 for a private room and $40ish for a dorm. Private rooms are harder on the weekends, but it's $50 for a bunk in a dorm and there are shared common rooms and kitchen.

    Also looking to demo the week of 3/24 any shops to recommend? Want to see if I can get on the Mindbender 108 and Nordica 104 to name a few.

    I usually like to demo on slope for the easy in and out. Check to see if they have the skis you are looking to demo at Mammoth Sports in the Village. If not, try Footloose or Kittredge - both good shops.

    What a killer week, best conditions in awhile. If it wasn’t for a few hundred foot tomahawk / slide down wipeout this afternoon, would have been up with the best ever file.
    The stockli’s were mind blowing on the groomers this morning .
    Home for the weekend to heal.

    At least it occurred on an appropriately named run! Rest up and get back at it-- I know I have been enjoying the pictures.

    Since the snow is returning Tues. into Wed. now, who knows, but my only thought on an alternate airport is one where 4 of us can get into the same day, so we don't lose a day of skiing. If we can't get into Reno, I'll take whatever we can get that day and make the drive. I have a Ford Expedition type on hold at 4 different airports for Wed. afternoon!! (shhh...don't tell National or Enterprise). RNO is #1, ONT #2, LAS #3. Same vehicle is almost 1/2 price in ONT (go figure), but we just need to make a connection along with our luggage out of DEN. That might be tricky, but it's a plan because we have GOTTA SKI!! Hopefully we'll just coast into MMH though and I don't give a [email protected]%& about getting home either!

    I had the pork chops tied to my ears so the dogs would play with me as a kid so I guess I check that box too.
