Report from May 19, 2022
Today was yet another stellar day in Mammoth.
We got out there at 7:30am and the upper mountain was already soft enough for carving.
Scottie’s off the top was a little weird as it felt like it didn’t freeze properly last night and maybe it had just enough east in it to get a bit cooked early.
Cornice, however, was perfect.
And the main racecourse had no racers today!
This means you can do a fast, fun, clean run from top to bottom on highly salted (read fast) snow that never lets up.
We ripped top to bottom laps from Cornice to Race Course all morning.
We eventually moved on for the sake of variety and found great turns on Chairs 3 5.
After the big day we had yesterday, I was pretty smoked by 10am…
I called it, rested up, then hit the Lazy River with the team.
The river was flowing a lot higher today due to it not really freezing around here for a few days.
We took full advantage…
Yimmers has only been river surfing for 2 days and he’s already an instructor and the only one of us who can carve.
Gosh… Just another spectacular day in Mammoth in May.
