Mammoth Mountain, CA – Mammoth Mountain is celebrating Memorial Day weekend with fun in the sun both on the slopes and the greens.

Spring Riding

Mammoth Spring is in full swing, which means blue skies, sunshine, and delicious corn snow are the norm. For Memorial Day weekend Mammoth will expand accessible terrain with the opening Chairs 5 and 23. A brand new Spring Pipe is currently under construction and will open May 22 for your jibbing pleasure. At over 10,000 feet, the Spring Pipe could be the highest session you’ve ever had.

If you’ve already purchased your 2002/03 Value Pass, good news – you can use it now for spring riding. If you don’t have a Value Pass yet, call 800.MAMMOTH or log onto www.MammothMountain.com before it’s too late. Offer good through May 31, 2002.

The ski area is scheduled to be open through the holiday weekend and possibly longer, depending on snow conditions so get your season pass today.

Golf at 8000′
