Mammoth 6/21/11

21 Jun, 2011

The mountain is in amazing condition for the end of June.  We finally got the heat wave and sunny skies but it’s a reminder of how quickly the snow melts when it finally does switch to summer.  I headed out to the slopes to help with chair #3 operations, it’s been fun to be a liftie some days of the week since I can get laps in during my shadowing time.

I ended up taking out the Flow Infinity 159 for reviews, each board is getting a couple days of ride time before the season ends.  The 159cm is on the longer size range than what I’d normally ride right now but it’s treated me good for hauling and stability on the mountain.

I watched Daniel hit the big spring jump and snapped this shot of him.  I ended up watching Pat Reddy stomp a backside 10 double cork from the bottom of the chair!  He had been working on it all day and was almost landing it, finally it came together and he perfected it at the end of the day.
