Mammoth Mountain Opens this Saturday with a Party

by Greg Colquitt | November 6, 2019

Hey Los Angeles, Get stoked.

After a grueling 104 days without skiing and riding, your favorite volcano is back at it. This Saturday, Mammoth Mountain will be turning its lifts for the first time this season and giving you the chance to knock the cobwebs off your snow legs. Surfing is cool and running is cool, but isn’t snow cooler? Just be cool.

Come for the Turns, Stay for the Party

Maybe don’t come in expecting big mountain turns and bottomless powder, but you can expect to have one helluva great time. Opening day at Mammoth Mountain is always a blast and full of events from the traditional first chair banner breakthrough to live music and drinks in the evening. Better yet, here’s a list of everything going on this Saturday:

Time Event Location
7:00am DJ & Free Coffee / Huski Chocolate Bottom of Broadway Express (Chair 1)
8:29am Countdown to 2019/20 Winter Season Bottom of Broadway Express (Chair 1)
8:30am First Chair Banner Breakthrough Bottom of Broadway Express (Chair 1)
11:00am Beer Toast Main Lodge Sundeck
11:30am Live Music Main Lodge Sundeck
7:30pm Official Opening Après Party & Viewing of “JOY: A Snowboard Film” 53 Kitchen and Cocktails in The Village

Get a first-hand look at a journey that follows the riding of snowboarders Red Gerard, Sage Kotsenburg, and Ben Ferguson in JOY. It was the path of Olympic gold medals and contest venues that banded together the cast of JOY, and the pursuit of bigger mountains and deeper snow that propelled them into this film project. From airs to slashes and navigating lines, the crew’s prowess and board control in the backcountry is in harmony with their renowned riding in the contest arena. From the north island of Japan to the heart of British Columbia, the crew finds the true joy in snowboarding. Appearances from Danny Davis, Brock Crouch, Hailey Langland, Gabe Ferguson and Nik Baden.

Don’t Stop on Saturday. Stay for the Weekend!

In classic Mammoth fashion, the fun continues. Come back Sunday for live music and again on Monday as we salute our active service and veteran men and women with free skiing and riding all day!
