Last year I believe it was almost January before the pipe was completed. This year it’s November and the Mammoth 22′ pipe opened today, a whole month before last season. It helped make the mountain look a little bit more like winter but we still need more snow to make for a total winter experience. I headed out on my ride break so I could lap the mountain, freeride and get in some pipe runs with Pat Stahl and his friends for some fun laps on the mountain.
Little bit of spray up snow makes for a fun photo when I followed the guys for speed laps down Chair 3
We lapped through park, which has a bunch of features and hopefully more park opening this week. I cannot wait for Forest Trail to open, it’s my favorite on the mountain.

Chunks of snow, just a little bit of ollie practice on the slopes
