Open for Biz! Snapshots of opening day at Mammoth Mountain

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on November 11, 2010 9:54 am

Yep, that anxious feeling scraping at the inside of your stomach disappeared over night.  That impatience of a six-year-old at Christmas morning?  Completely evaporated.  Opening day at Mammoth Mountain is here!  Everything is once again in its natural state.  A major house of snow worship has an empty seat on the chairlift alter for you right now.  Best you go claim it before the stomach scraping begins anew.

Check out these scenes snapped this morning of opening day at Mammoth Mountain.  We praise thee, Mammoth, for you are without blame.

That is some sweet corn, but really it’s about what’s going on in the background: snowblowing the top of 23!  Chair 23, a Ski Channel favorite.  Click here for our confession of love for this magnificent, fixed-grip three-seater.

OK, we’re jealous.  This scene is not going to happen while I’m at a desk in the basement of an office building.  Stomach scraping just restarted.  Where are my car keys?

See you soon Woolly Mammoth!  I shall drink from thine snout…
