The go-to bowl off the top of the Panorama Gondola, Climax is a typical first run on a bluebird powder day. It offers a consistently steep pitch that allows for some of the best bowl skiing in California.

After booking it down Climax, head straight for the High-Five Express. From the top, skiers and riders can access Sanctuary, a beautiful powder pitch that isn’t as wind affected as the summit runs.

Philippe’s is one of the most prominent and dramatic looking couloirs inbounds @Mammoth. The chute boasts vertical walls that keep the snow chalky and smooth, giving the chute a backcountry-esque vibe.
