Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort is in a giving mood this year. Specifically, this Christmas mammoth will give it’s mountain guests a new trail to enjoy that has been 30 years in the making. The new “Village Ski Back Trail” was proposed in the 1970′s, but no real design work for the trail began until 1994. It wasn’t until January of 2009 that a final plan was approved, the latest version having much less of an environmental impact than previous plans. The new trail will handle as many as 1200 skiers and snowboarders an hour and is set to open on Dec. 25th.
