Mammoth Announces 2000/2001 Prices

$375 Value Season Pass sales continue through July 4 or while supplies last · New Youth ticket offers young adults (ages 19-23) discounted lift ticket rate · Mammoth Mountain continues aggressive resort improvement campaign

Mammoth Mountain, CA – Mammoth Mountain Ski Area recently announced lift ticket prices for the 2000-2001 season along with details on a new Youth ticket and sales information on the recently debuted Value Season Pass.

Value Season Pass The best value for next season is clearly the new $375 Value Season Pass. The Value Season Pass is good for unlimited skiing and boarding throughout the 2000-2001 season and allows access to Mammoth’s famous spring skiing at a 75 percent savings off the regular season pass price. The Value Pass pays for itself in only seven days of skiing or riding and offers not only tremendous savings, but also the convenience of going directly to lifts, bypassing the ticket window. The pass is priced at $375 for adults, $275 for teens (ages 13-18) and $175 for children (ages 7-12) and seniors (65 and over). “We continue to see a good response to the incredible savings that the Value Pass offers our guests,” said Rob Perlman, Executive Director of Marketing for Mammoth. “Time is running out to take advantage of the tremendous savings so act now while supplies last.” Pass sales have been strong since the May 1 launch date and passes will only be available until July 4 while supplies last. To purchase the pass, call 800-MAMMOTH or apply on-line at www.mammothmountain.com.

New Youth Ticket Expanding on the success of the College Club campaign, Mammoth Mountain is extending a $10 discount on daily lift tickets to all young adults aged 19-23. Young adults receive the discount by presenting a valid identification with proof of age – no College Card or membership is required.

Another $11 Million in Resort Improvements Summer 2000 As part of the resort’s $11 million capital improvement program, Chairs 15 and 24, currently fixed-grip chairs located at the Juniper Springs base area on the far east side of Mammoth Mountain, will be replaced with a Doppelmayr high-speed detachable six-seat chairlift, Eagle Express. Mammoth’s first “six-pack” lift, Eagle Express will unload at the existing location, while the bottom terminal will be moved uphill approximately 70 feet. “In response to guest comments, Mammoth continues to improve overall amenities on the mountain and the new six-pack at the Juniper Springs base area will make access to the mountain more convenient,” said Rob Perlman, Executive Director of Marketing for Mammoth Mountain. “It will be especially advantageous for guests at the new Juniper Springs Lodge, our premier slopeside resort property, located just steps away from the lift.” The Forest Service also granted approval for expansion of the Ski Areas snowmaking to include the Juniper Springs area. Initially, snowmaking will be added to trails that link Juniper Springs to Canyon Lodge. The addition of snowmaking to Juniper Springs will ensure early season access to the mountain from this portal conveniently located in town. In addition to the major construction projects, an outdoor pool and spa will be installed at the Mammoth Mountain Inn, along with a number of improvements to base facilities.

Mammoth Mountain is scheduled to open Thursday, November 9, 2000. Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is the leading four-season mountain resort in California.
