Record Winter Sets the Stage for Mammoth Improvements
For Many ’18 Olympic Hopefuls the Road to PyeongChang
Starts and Ends in Mammoth
Coming off a 270-day-long season that broke multiple snowfall records, Mammoth Mountain opens its lifts on November 9th 2017 with a number of improvements and new businesses greeting visitors for winter ’17/18. January 2017 was the snowiest month on record with 246” at Main Lodge. Collectively during last winter, Mammoth received its second most snowfall on record with 618” at Main Lodge and up to 800” at the summit.
Mammoth Mountain will be at the center of the run-up to the 2018 Winter Olympics. Its Unbound Terrain Parks, routinely ranked the best in the world and known among snowboarders and freeskiers for consistent quality and creative progression, will serve as the launching point for a number of Olympic dreams. Names like Shaun White, Chloe Kim and Kelly Clark who’ve made Mammoth their home base will be joined by a host of others looking for similar success and the training edge that the best park in the world provides. The men’s and women’s Olympic Freeski and Snowboard slopestyle and halfpipe teams will also be named at Mammoth following the Mammoth Grand Prix, which will serve as the final Olympic qualifier.
US Freeski and Snowboard Grand Prix: The 2018 US Olympic Snowboarding and Freeski teams will be named at Mammoth Mountain, following the 2018 Mammoth Grand Prix, Jan. 17-21. The final event in the Olympic qualifying series, the Grand Prix will see the biggest names in snow sports descending on the Eastern Sierra for one last chance to punch their ticket to PyeongChang. With the Olympics on tap and with so much new in store, there’s a lot to be excited about in the Eastern Sierra, even if we did just put our skis and boards away.
