    Mammoth is going off

    We were up in Mammoth sept. 16-18. The new work they have done is just outstanding. The Recoil to Twilight Zone run is the best. I lost count of how many times I hit it. We had the GoPro running. Enjoy.

    If this was facebook I would like this post. haha. YES! Mammoth has stepped up their game big time. I've been going there every summer for the past 6 years and this year was BY FAR the sickest. So awesome, with all the improvements they've made. Check out some of my videos.

    That looks like a blast. Thanks for posting that jfish.

    With Mammoth and Northstar as close as they are (6-7 hours) I should really get over there.

    Thanks for the information, I have just started DHing, and have spent the last 3 weekends at Downieville and Northstar. I had heard that Mammoth was not worth the extra effort to get there, but it looks like I may need to re-evaluate that sentiment.

    So far from the truth. Just an additional 3 hours to get some more world class, one of a kind riding? Its a no brainer.

    Mammoth is great. Northstar is great. They're very different, but both well worth the visit.

    More videos

    If you liked those videos you may enjoy these as well. These were shot a month earlier. There was still some snow on the trails then.

    Cool videos and nice riding.

    I went to Mammoth for the first time last weekend and I have to say honestly I like N* more. N* is more efficient with the bikes on the lifts and I thought they handled the bikes more carefully. Maybe this is different when they have more than one lift open, but I was not impressed with the employees. The people at N* have almost always been friendly and helpful unlike my experience at Mammoth. Also,Twilight had way to many pavers, but the curved wall ride is pretty freaking cool. To be fair Mammoth has some really cool trails, I just think N* is a tad bit better.

    it's always hard to get a jumo trail right the first time (distance, speed, size etc)
    Hopefully the trail crew can move the ramp maybe 5 or 10 feet closer so it's not an all out top gear sprint to clear the first one
    Much easier since it's not a mound of dirt

    I know some kidz are too cool for school and can prolly make backside
    But that leaves you somewhat spent for the rest of the fairly long run, at altitude

    Pipeline is going to be tweaked next season. Hendo and the trail crew are on it. It was really windy the last weekend of bike park. I think the jumps will be easier to clear w/o so much head wind

    it was windy, but on Sun afternoon, down in the tree protected pipeline area it was surprisingly calm
    I did have a heavy dakine pack on as well as a bent rotor and teetering on exhaustion for day 2 of the weekend for a sea level dweller

    Me still tinks it could be closer

    All I ask is the that the feedback be taken into consideration, been building and riding djs for a while, so I sorta know what Im talking about

    "Meh"moth. It's a shame they're putting so much work into dirt that's not conducive to trails. Example: Every "berm" is made from pavers.

    I think I might just be biased from a handful of days @ Whistler this year, though.

    Joe, ur hanging around Jesse too much, stop hating on Mammoth, it's frikin waaaaaaaaaaay better than n* and most other dh lift assisted resorts I've ridden at

    For the bay area peeps, don't have to fly there, cross borders, break down, box ur bike, build it up, repeat. It's a lot less time and $ to get some good riding on

    Have you been there this year? No? then you prob shouldnt be talking

    I don't care if the trails are made from the blood of Iraqi children, seal pelts or the opinionated-but-sucky riders who are afraid of dubs as long as they flow

    Not all the trails are as bad, soft as you make them out to be

    My only point is that #1 in the line could be shortened and nostranger's input that there are others that could be lengthened, ie adjustment/fine tuning, esp since they have heavy equipment to do so

    Some of the other tables on the line under the lift near techno rock are long, sprint to clear types
    Hopefully the crew will adjust those as well

    Personally, I like getting into a line and flowing (not sprinting), esp if you have elevation to play with

    I'm stoked for next season, and prob will try to get there for pow time too 760" last year or something, but for that you have to fly (from bay area)

    I don't see what the problem with pavers is. The paver berms are smooth and stable. The pavers are grippy as hell and inspire confidence. I think most dirt would have a hard time holding up to resort type traffic. It is my understanding that some pavers are used in Whistler as well.

    I am sure things will be tweaked a bit. Do you think Dirt Merchant was perfect the first weekend it was open? I wasn't there so I don't know but I doubt it.

    Please keep hating on Mammoth and don't go ride there. I like the lift lines to be as short as possible.

    I think pavers are a great idea.
    heavy rains on the east coast, constant traffic...etc destroy the berms and tables. Maintenance is always required...these would def help keep the trails tight.

    Sounds like the whining of someone who lacks the requisite skills to ride the loose pumice. Once you get good you'll find that the pumice is more fun than "regular" dirt.

    Have you rode at Northstar this year? I rode at both places 3 days at mammoth and like 25 at northstar. Livewire has every lip groomed really nice right now and is better than recoil. Mammoth is cool and has bigger features than northstar but to say it is waaay better is flat out wrong. Also if you like flowing I would try to hit N* this weekend if they are open livewire is(was) in excellent condition.

    I like the vids of Mammoth- the mountain looks like it has a desert on it!

    I've noticed the pavers in videos for WBP & always wondered what the hell they were.

    That's it in a nutshell really. I like both places, but IMHO Mammoth has done a better job figuring out how to more consistently improve the flow of their trails. If you hit the right trail at N* on the right weekend it's great! (i.e. a race weekend when the race trails actually get some maintenance love and are in good shape, or the two weekends a year they N* has hero dirt).

    Mammoth is more consistent.

    Again, they are both worth a visit.

    Not sure about after-race day, but N* have it's consistency. You have to go around same pot-holes on the Livewire every visit very consistently. I think I even recall most of them from the last year.

    Mammoth figured a way to build trail that last, so next year they can spent time building new things.
    If they will build more around Canyon lodge and will run lift there (that's the plan from what I heard) next season would be amazing.
    I used to run tubes like you are, but then I got thorn in my wheel.

Also if you like flowing I would try to hit N* this weekend if they are open livewire is(was) in excellent condition.
    Nope I gave up on N* this year, there's a much better self shuttle place in the sierras somewhere, wont give it up tho, I am sure you know where it is
    I don't race either, rather get a bunch of runs in than hurry and wait

    My buds have ridden both this year, onre is another 40yo+ and still shredding person like myself
    He said they barely did any maintenance at n* and it was the same as last year

    If one is going to make a trip, I'd drive the extra few hrs to mammoth, blackrock, post canyon (never been there) or whizzla (havent been there in 2 years)

    N* does have that 26 jump park at the bottom tho, I've only made it thru the to 5 set in the big line until some other kid broke himself off there real bad

    I'm glad to have options

    I'd love if someone would give us a south lake freeride tour too hint hint, we can show you our stashes in the bay area in return

    i can see that. Mammoth did more work in this 1 year than i have seen northstar do in 3.

    mammoth reworked a bunch trails, added upper twilight, recoil, and pipeline... I think its a good start.

    The more you get heated and pick interwebz fights, the more we all enjoy it, so please keep it going

    Not heated at all, that was a cool, calm, and collected response. Just remember, you started it. I just made a simple statement trying to protect something that I truly enjoy and have vested my time into. Funny how everytime I ask someone not to mention it, they get all weird. It wont be long till that place is shut down because people cant keep secrets, then you will wish you had done your part by not mentioning it.

    Skidmark (from the top of the gondy) was closed, which would mean less pedally traverse
    There's another trail I dont know the name of from the top was closed too
    I heard people were poaching them tho... (not the last wknd tho as gondy was closed)

    16 or any of the lower lifts would be money. canyon and eagle close much earlier than the rest of the mountain, so they could potentially open some terrain earlier. so much more area to expand into as well.

    I know they used to run chair 15 back in the day for bikes.

    Pipe line is in the 2nd half of the video. It was my first run through it so it could have been better, it was still pretty fun. Can't wait till next year.

    If anyone's looking to get a Mammoth pass for the summer, they just went on sale for $199 "for a limited time" if you're renewing an MVP season pass. Might be able call them up and just buy the bike pass for that price too.

    Where did you see that? Their website doesn't seem to give you the option to buy a summer pass yet.

    You need to call them.
    However, they said $269 early buy without the MVP renewal and $199 with the MVP renewal.

    Yeah it only shows up when you renew an mvp pass, but I vaguely remember last year you could call them to buy it on its own.

    Pass is good from June 21 - Sept. 15 apparently.
