    Good job! Mammoth this weekend



    opening weekend people.. who is going (besides me and my bro)?

    i guess there is no issues with wearing full face helmets and having multiple inches of travel. so if that's what you ride, rock it.

    I really doubt it. I am pretty sure there is a good amount of snow at the top still.

    i've called 'em like a billion times and they keep saying it's opening this weekend. of course, nobody knows if the "top" will be open. ya know.. that's just too specific (heh).

    whatever.. i'll be there on my un-Lucky-7. ridin' the lower trails at least. i am sure the top of Velocity will be closed.

    Flew right over mammoth yesterday and the top still has a lot of white all the way down to McCoy. The backside looks nice with a lot of brown..should be about right in a few weeks with a few good heat waves.

    JUST got off the horn with "Blossom" (heheheh) up at Mamm. she said

    ".. call back Friday. They are working on melting snow blah blah..."

    sounds like we might get some top action .

    so yeah, don't eat the yellow snow.

    I've been watching the pics on the Mammoth site for the last week and the snow is melting fast. Doubtful the top will be open though.

    From STR:

    So Like I'm Totally bumed and not sure if I wanna go or cancel.

    "
    So we just got the official word...
    - Due to snow above the Main Lodge only the lower trails will be open.
    - The following lower mountain trails will be open: Uptown, Downtown, Paper Route, Big Ring, Timber Ridge, Lakes Trails, Juniper, Lower Bullet, Lower Follow Me, Shotgun.
    - The shuttle bus will start running on Saturday every 20-30 minutes from the Village for access back to the Adventure Center from 9:00 to 5:30.
    - With continued melt-off and a bunch of hard work from trail crew we plan on having gondola access to trails from McCoy Station and the Top of the Sierra on July 3.
    Please let me know if you have other questions.

    well.. this is like a billion times worse that the Lakers losing. or the Lakers plane crashing into an orphanage.

    i'm OUT. if i can't change my reservation (in town) to another date, we may go up and phuck off in town and ride the Volcom Bros. skatepark. else.. eff this weekend in its a$$.

    and PHUCK YOU MAMMOTH for not keeping your website HONESTLY UPDATED. just like any other ski resort, you used deceit to keep up the biz for this weekend. i.e., the mtn is NOT really opened. it's kinda sorta quasi opened. phucking ***** pussies.

    fvcking pussies. i can totally believe that they did this. a-holes. sure sure.. nobody can count on mother nature.. AND WHERE'S GLOBAL WARMING IN ALL THIS?!?! .. but still, they had to have known at least a week ago that the trails wouldn't be cleared. yet there's nothing on their website to indicate that.

    FVCK!

    JUST went down to "B*tchin' Stitchin' ". took my jersey in there. they are going to embroider

    "FVCK YOU MAMMOTH YOU SOCK CORPORATE KOCK" on the back for me. s/b nice. i'll post pics when finished.

    i mean what? why NOTHING on the site? so people would continue to make reservations? YES! OF COURSE!!

    so lame. a simple "The mtn will partially open. The gondola won't be running .. blah blah.. these trails.. blah."

    NOTHING.

    there are many years that this is the case, happens alot. just wait a few weeks and chill. the kitty litter will still be there for you. one year we bought a lift ticket (they said whole mountian is open), then closed lifts within 10 minutes (before first run) and would not refund our money (they said the shuttle bus is still working, ha). mammoth is 100x worse than whistler.

    yes. i worked at a mtn (Mt. Bachelor / Oregon). i know they are really evil and have enacted laws that are designed to deprive you of your money under all circumstances.

    hate and disconent. i was able to cancel my reservation. i am going 11th - 13th. then again 25-27th.

    it's just so lame.. that there's nothing on the webstite that really gives any good honest information.

    That makes sense. Mammoth has traditionally had at least a few token ski runs open until July 4th.

    me and my bud are still beefing over Mammoth's website not keeping the public informed on what the real deal is. that, and i had to brawl with some barely english literate motel owners over my cancelling a reservation 'cuz it was close [but not there] to the no cancel deadline.

    wtf mammoth? you are pieces of $hit. Mammoth didn't plan to open the Gondola until July 3rd.. yet nothing was on their website until last saturday.. the day the park "opened".. which as we know, it really didn't.

    sick. pieces of $hit.

    Velocity, Kamikaze and Upper Off the Top open Tomorrow (6/28) and trail crew is working hard to get more terrain open. There is more to opening up a trail up here than just letting the snow melt unfortunately; the pumice trails gets fairly eroded during the spring runoff and must be repaired and the winter blowdown needs to be cleared before a trail can be safely opened.

    Well, just got back from Mammoth. Only the lower trails were open all week. While I was disappointed, I'm going back soon. Loved it up there otherwise: fishing, hiking, great place to stay (Westin). I had to laugh at all the armor and full-face helmets on the shuttle bus for the lower trails. What a joke! I was fine with my 4" travel and cross-country gear (no lycra!).

    It was all lower lower stuff: shotgun, big ring, paper route, bullet, etc. I also rode up the road and dropped down Mountain View trail, but there was still some pretty big snow banks on it. No chairs or gondola were open to mountain bikers yet. I missed it just by days, apparently.

    Dearest Kocksuckers (bob & howeler),

    I called everyday at starting one week prior to the date i had a reservation to go there. i got the same run around everyday: "Call on Friday.. blah blah blah."

    on the thursday before i was going up, i finally got pushy and was said "Do you know the trails?" The girl replied that she wasn't even a mtn biker and knew nothing of the trails. I asked her to get someone in the office that knew the trails. She came back a few minutes later and stated that there was nobody in the office that was an actual mtn biker.

    she finally offered that the gondola was not opening until July 3rd.. that is not a "spur of the moment" decision. mammoth had obviously planned not to open the gondola. they were aware of the date they'd run it long before June 21st, their "opening day".

    instead of posting that correct information on their site, they simply said "Opening Day is the 21st". i don't.. nor does anyone here (that is NOT a kocksucker.. like you 2) that the mtn is open until you can get on the gondola and come ripping down from the top.

    it's too bad that when brain ded blue balled idiots start late on a thred, they cannot comprehend what is actually going on. sux2 B U. sry.

    Yup, you're straight up retarded. It's also too bad you speak openly on a forum board like a tactless, retarded teenager.
