Staff Pick as the #1 Unofficial Edit of the 2011/2012 winter season.
March 19, 2012 Powder Skiing at Mammoth Mountain by Colin Farrell.
Mammoth Powder Video Update, March 19, 2012 | You know we wouldn’t leave you hanging… Was yesterday (Monday) the best pow day of the season? Arguably so.
Put in half a day of skiing with Bernie Rosow, Garrett Russell and Christian Pondella (a day w/ deep blower pow, I might add) and special things are destined to happen – yes, watch the VIDEO. Be fair warned, this video won’t make you feel any better for having not made it to Mammoth this weekend. Yet, if you were lucky enough to join in on the feast, go ahead, play it over and over… relive winter at its finest. (It is still winter, right?)
Yesterday the clouds parted, Locals came out in droves and lingering Weekend Warriors scored big. After a solid storm cycle the Top finally opened and the powder annihilation was on. Mammoth now has over 200 inches on the books for the 2011/2012 season (yes, mid-March is a bit late to reach this total) and I must say, the Mountain is looking rather healthy. Have your doubts? Did you watch the video above? This all went down yesterday and Sunday… End of discussion.
