It didn’t look like the best day to be outside on the mountain but despite the weather, it was a day to enjoy skiing and snowboarding. A quick trip up to Main Lodge showed that many people decided to stay in and that the mountain was ours to enjoy. We ended up parking at The Village to prepare for the Pond Skim later in the day. It was snowing in The Village, a sign of the mountain’s conditions.
I headed up to the slopes with my brother, Brett, for the day. We headed to chair #22 and #25 to see what conditions were like. It was a mix of new snow with some ice patches but the new snow was good to play in.
We ended up running into a couple familiar faces, Jon and Lisa, Ramsey and Becky from Windell’s and others.

We ended up headed into Canyon Lodge for food and then made our way to the Pond Skim. It was set up beautifully except for the cold weather that forgot about Spring Fest at Mammoth. It felt like mid winter! I put a bunch of photos on the Mammoth Livevibe Blog as well.
