Mammoth Mountain, CA – While nearly all other resorts across the country are closed or closing soon for the season, Mammoth Mountain is just gearing up for amazing spring skiing and boarding conditions. Mammoth has a longstanding history of one of the longest skiing and boarding seasons in the world and expects to stay open through Memorial Day and into June or even later if conditions permit.
Excellent snowfall throughout the 2008/09 winter season has led to an extraordinary snowpack at the eastern Sierra Nevada resort. Mammoth has received 460 inches of snowfall to date including nearly 12 feet of snowfall in February 2009 alone. Mammoth currently has a base depth of 8-13 feet of packed snow ensuring skiing and boarding for many weeks to come.
Mammoth has long been a haven for springtime skiers and boarders thanks to a peak elevation of 11,053 feet. Such elevation helps keep a consistent snowpack at the resort far longer than most other resorts.
The top skiers and riders in the world flock to Mammoth every spring to take advantage of the traditionally long season. Construction will begin soon on a spring terrain park and Super Duper Pipe accessible from Face Lift Express and numerous spring race camps are scheduled through the end of May.
"We will offer a 22-foot tall pipe and a spring park right up until the last day that the resort is open this season. The commitment at Mammoth is to our guest every single day we are open," said Oren Tanzer, Director of YAS Marketing at Mammoth Mountain. "This pipe will truly be great and National teams from across the world are expected in anticipation of the 2010 Winter Olympics."
Skiers and boarders can take advance of these epic conditions at Mammoth with the Spring Fest lift and lodging package from only $99 per person/per night*. For details, visit www.MammothMountain.com or call 800.MAMMOTH (626.6684).
