No more tram laps. No more Cody missions. And no more Tram fart claims.

5) Harvest corn on “The King”
There’s no excuse to be a lazy sack of sh*t when Snow King Mountain is located conveniently in your backyard. Grab the skins, get to hiking, and ski down to the The Lift for unofficial après.
4) Get laid for the first time in 6 months
It’s been a season full of powder but lacking in something else. Lucky for you, offseason is a surprisingly good time to find a romantic partner.

3) Use A Raft To Scope lines in Grand Teton National Park

2) Put summer wax on all the resort skis

Mammoth Mountain is open till July 4th. Just saying…
