Join members of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Teams at Mammoth Mountain April 2 to 4 to help raise money for a good cause. Olympians Ted Ligety and Stacey Cook will be on hand among several other U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team stars to help raise money for the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation which aims to help athletes become world-class.

The Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation was formed to benefit young athletes and scholars from the Eastern Sierra region by providing the facilities, services, equipment and programs they need to achieve athletic excellence. The annual Mammoth Invitational ihas long been a favorite fundraising event which includes ski and snowboard races, evening social functions, entertainment, live/silent auctions and boat-loads of fun. 

The Awards Presentation, Dinner & Silent/Live Auction  takes place on Saturday, April 3, with dinner at 6 PM. Tickets are $250 per person. Contact Dave Schacht at 760.934.0639 to reserve your seat.

The following is information on the races and sponsorship. For more information, contact Dave Schacht at the number above.

 

Race Format

Join us for an exciting weekend of both alpine ski racing and banked slalom. Alpine and snowboard racing teams will be made up of five athletes (4 amateurs and 1 pro/coach to be assigned by MMST) and each team will represent a country (i.e. USA, Switzerland, Germany). The Saturday alpine race will consist of two runs down a dual giant slalom and each racer will have a handicap based on their ability. 

Banked Slalom teams will compete on a handicap basis on a custom course in Powder Bowl, Friday afternoon, designed by the Unbound Crew especially for this event. Never been on a course like this? No worries, we’ll show you how with the help of our pro athletes at the event.
