#MammothsOpen for the 2017/18 Season

Nov 15, 2017

Piggybacking off the amazing 2016/17 season, skiers and boarders were ecstatic about the second Thursday of November when we fired the lifts back up for another great season. Anticipation was at an all-time high as passionate skiers and riders packed the Broadway Express (Chair 1) lift line for the chance at some early season turns. Tons of news crews were present to cover all the excitement of the annual first chair banner breakthrough celebration, and even featured some of dedicated shredders who camped overnight to secure one of the free lift tickets offered to the first 100 people in line. Fun was had all weekend with plenty of slope time and endless jib sessions in the lower Main Park set up. 

Like the past few years, we encouraged guests to share their best opening weekend moments by tagging #MammothsOpen on Instagram and Twitter for a chance to win a GoPro Hero6. Overall, 534 #MammothsOpen posts were shared on Instagram from fans, sponsors, partners and athletes, with @Nickrc90 taking home the prize. 

Snow is currently falling with more expected through Friday, which will offer up more terrain for weekend. It’s a great time to get up to Mammoth, so book your trip today and follow @MammothMountain on social media to stay up-to-date on all the fun.
