    Mammoth Mountain, C.A June 7-8th 2006

    Area Skied: Mammoth Mountain California

    Dates skied: June 7-8th, 2006

    Surface Conditions Frozen Granular (early morning), Machine Groomed, Spring Snow.

    On Wednesday June 7th, we woke up early and skied from 7am to 12pm, snow conditions in the morning where very firm with carvable snow wherever the groomers had been, and soft corn snow where they had not been. This is because Mammoth uses salt to firm up the snow behind the groomer, as Killington used to do on Superstar years back.

    Warren and I took a few runs on the groomed fairways, and then took a nice run into Rooster Tail Bowl and down a somewhat bumped up Dry Creek trail, which had some nice cliffs for a background and became my favorite trail at Mammoth.

    On Thursday we skied a few groomed crusiers from 8-10am before driving to Yosemite (500 miles round trip)

    I left Warren to ski alone on the lower mountain late on Wednesday morning so I could ski the more extreme stuff near the summit, such as Drop Out Chutes:



    This trail was fairly steep as you can tell by the angle of chair 23:
