With over 3,500 acres on Mammoth there are features located all over the place. Here are some of our favorites.
1. The Flow Drop: In the middle of Flow there's a steep section of loose trail that leads you straight to a wooden step down that allows you to drop 5 or 25 feet. You don't need much speed but make sure you lift up and stay off the brakes, nose dives are common.
2. The Monkey Wrench (Chain Smoke): Towards the bottom of Chain Smoke you'll find a hoot of a stepdown/rock ride with a wooden landing. The takeoff is not totally defined so cleaning this one deserves a small fist pump.
3. Deep End (Twilight Zone): This raised wooden berm offers a smooth, albeit slightly intimidating right hand turn begging to be railed at speed.
4. Monolith (Pipeline): This large wooden up and over begs to be hit at speed after coming off some fun little doubles. Get ready to pull some G’s through the right hand turn below the landing.
5. The Bus Stop (Techno Rock): This large rock to wood drop requires some speed and commitment. Plenty of airtime is available if you can navigate the slightly off camber takeoff.
6. Thing One and Thing Two (Pipeline): Pipeline has two large gaps at the top of the trail. Both are wooden takeoffs that have a mellow (blue) side. For the first gap you’re going to need to carry some speed off of Flow and pedal around the blind corner which will put you right in front of a perfect takeoff requiring a ton of air, this is Thing One. It's advisable to hit the blue side to get used to the run-in. Thing Two comes soon after and is a step-up with two sides. The gap side (black) requires speed but again, the blue side can be ridden over and offers a great way to work your way up to its bigger brother next to it.
