    Sierra Star Golf Course

    7. Sierra Star Golf Course.

  • All-Stars Hit the Slopes at Mammoth Mountain

    by Woolly Mammoth | May 03, 2016

    After School All-Stars Assemble for group photo at Mammoth sign atop Mammoth Mountain.

    38 After-School All-Star (ASAS) students from the greater Los Angeles area spent a once-in-a lifetime weekend learning to ski and snowboard at the Mammoth Mountain, on an all-expenses paid trip courtesy of the resort. After-School All-Stars, the largest school-based comprehensive afterschool provider in the country, serves mostly low-income youth of color in the middle school grades. After arriving Friday night and settling into their cabins, the kids enjoyed a welcome by CEO and President of After-School All-Stars, Ben Paul.

    Students also enjoyed snacks and ice breaker games before turning in for the night. On Saturday, the students, many of whom had never had the opportunity to see snow before, enjoyed an in-depth lesson at Ski School before hitting the slopes. Woolly cheered on the kids as they conquered the bunny slopes and quickly grew confident enough to test out more challenging runs.  

    A group of students from After School All-Stars jump for joy atop Mammoth Mountain.

    On Saturday night, the kids were joined by Mammoth Mountain staff for a career exploration opportunities panel, aimed at introducing the kids to the wide variety of careers in the hospitality industry. Participants included Mark Brownlie, COO;  Peter Korfiatis, Athletic Director; Peter Morning, Brand Photographer / Video Manager; West Vane, Ski Patrol; and Sergio Morena, Executive Housekeeper. On Sunday morning, the kids hit the slopes again, before they packed up and headed home.
     
    Ben Paul, CEO of ASAS said, “I’d like to thank Rusty Gregory, Mark Brownlie and the entire Mammoth Mountain team for your tremendous generosity.  The Mammoth All-Star Ski Weekend has become an incredible partnership that provides our students with the opportunity to not only have fun, but to learn about resilience and important life lessons.   

    Beyond trying out skiing and snowboarding, many of our students spent their first night away from home and touched snow for the first time in their lives.  In addition, the weekend exposed them to a range of interesting and challenging careers.”

    The takeaway from the weekend was that the Mammoth Mountain staff and community deeply care about giving back.  Paul continued, “Experiences like this demonstrate to our kids that the greater community is invested in helping them, and the confidence that comes with the knowledge of that greater support system will help them success in school and in life.”
     
    Thanks for everyone who came out!
