The new stuff, to be unveiled on Opening Weekend: 

  • The Downtown Collection – Since the inception of skateboarding, urban landscapes have been subject to new perspectives, perspectives that have been perfected by skiing and snowboarding. This new take on stairs, ledges, concrete and cement manifests itself every year when your favorite pros release their video parts. Now you can challenge yourself on these same features-  without the need to carry security guard-bribing donuts everywhere
  • The Progression Park – Mammoth Mountain is making it easy for beginning skiers and riders to get their first taste of what it's like to catch some air with the introduction of the new Unbound Playground Progression Park. It's an ideal introduction to terrain parks with approachable features that allow beginners to learn how to do tricks and master the rails and box slides. The gradual progression—from a few inches off the ground to big boy/girl heights—allows snowboarders and skiers to learn at their own pace and move up to the next level of difficulty as they're ready for it. With smaller, low-risk features on the top that gradually give way to intermediate and medium sized features at the bottom, the progression park helps riders build the skills to go bigger. Instructional boards positioned throughout the park provide self-guided pointers and the parks secluded location lessens the intimidation factor. This is the place kids will want to hang out this winter and gives parents another reason to love Mammoth Mountain
