  • Chloe Kim Featured in Outside Magazine

    Chloe Kim is a member of Mammoth Unbound team and is quickly becoming the most high-profile competitive halfpipe snowboarder in the world. Exploding onto the competitive scene last season by landing podiums at the Grand Prix and X Games as well as becoming the youngest World Snowboard Tour overall champion ever, Chloe now 14 is the "it" girl of snowboarding. 

    Featured this week in an article by Outside Magazine, Kim combines youthful exuberance with veteran poise and skills in the halfpipe. While she was too young (at 13) to qualify for the Sochi Olympics, she is considered to be the next great hope for a US Gold Medal in 2018. 

    While a lot can happen in four years, hopes are high for Chloe's success and she seems perfectly adept and handling the pressure and the fun! 

    Congratulations to Chloe Kim and see you on the hill!

  • Mammoth Mission - Woolly is Mammoth Bound

    by Woolly Mammoth | Dec 11, 2014



    In Woolly's rap music video debut, our favorite mascot hits Highway 395 with professional snowboarder John Jackson in a souped up Caddy on a mission to Mammoth Mountain. They’re trading the beach celebration for some high elevation, navigating all sorts of awesomeness along the way.

    They’ll feast on jerky, dream of steep and deep chutes, and, of course, make a stop at the #MammothBeanie (oh, you’ll see it soon enough!). Once they roll up to the mountain they’re going straight to the top to snap pics, make #MammothStories, and share their fun with the world.

  • Snow in the Forecast for Mammoth Mountain

    by Woolly Mammoth | Dec 01, 2014

    weather

    Mammoth Mountain is expecting a solid hit of snow this week beginning Monday night through Wednesday night. Local experts are calling for up to 2 feet or more on the mountain.

    MammothWeather.com's Howard Sheckter says:

    "2 to 3 feet will set us up for the Christmas holidays……Remember, this is dense heavy base building snow. It is absolutely the best type of snow that we could want. It becomes more difficult to ski it out!  So…. Go ahead and book it for the holiday…you will not be disappointed…. And……The Dweebs see another series of storms about mid month. That will be the icing on the cake!"

    So get your skis shined up and get your boots up to Mammoth this December! Check out our Deals & Packages page for great offers too!
