Mammoth Mountain Extends Ski and Snowboard Season to July 4, 2010
Mammoth Mountain, CA – Thanks to incredible snowfall throughout the 2009/10 winter season, Mammoth Mountain will extend its winter operations for daily skiing and riding to July 4, 2010.
Mammoth Mountain has received over 41 feet (493 inches) of snowfall this season including more than three feet of snow in the first week of April. With a current base depth of 11 feet to 15 feet of snow, Mammoth is experiencing the best snowfall season since the record breaking 2005/06 season, when over 50 feet of snow fell on the mountain.
Long known for snow seasons that stretch well into spring and summer, this will mark the 11th time that Mammoth Mountain has been open for skiing and riding on the Fourth of July within the last 31 years of operation.
Mammoth Mountain’s high alpine bowls offer some of the best spring riding available anywhere.
Construction will start soon on a high altitude spring terrain park featuring jumps, rails and a 22-foot Super Duper Pipe accessible from Face Lift Express
>>> I have spent many of my July 4th at either Mammoth or Mt Hood, Always a great time in the Wipe Out Drop out or Gravy Chutes

It is with regret after giving much thought that Endless Winter will be reducing the size, and frquency of coverage next season.
This is primarily due to changes in the economy, decreased advertising & sponsorship and other factors.
