Mammoth Mountain has hosted U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team members for annual spring training sessions over the last 10 years.
The sessions usually turn out to be the who’s who of US skiers and snowboarders, and this year’s session featured Olympic superstars Mikaela Shiffrin and Shaun White.

“The ideal spring conditions combined with Mammoth’s commitment to supporting the Olympic movement, dating back to founder Dave McCoy, have made it the annual spring gathering place for both the sports elite and up-and-comers alike.”
These spring sessions are essential for athletes to get as much training on snow as possible heading into next season’s competitions.

Wouldn’t it be sweet to be a fly on the snow during these spring training sessions?
You’d see bonafide legends, up-and-comers, and everybody in between on the US Ski and Snowboard Team.
I’m sure the sunny, spring vibes are palpable.
