“Healing is a matter of time, but sometimes also a matter of opportunity.

Mammoth Lakes, CA, June 9–California may be the land of the endless summer, but it’s also holding onto winter longer than most ski areas in the U.S. as a late season snowstorm blew through Mammoth Mountain Ski area Thursday.

The storm left four to six-inches of fresh snow on the slopes with flurries expected into the evening. Chair lifts Broadway Express and Facelift service top-to-bottom skiing on 25 percent of the mountain. Intermediate and advanced skiers can carve up the mountain until the June 19 closing date.

Despite a two to five-foot base on the open runs, Mammoth Mountain will transform into a mountain biking destination on June 23. Five months later on November 9 the ski season will begin again.

Mammoth Mountain will continue to sell a limited number of discount 2000-2001 season passes until July 4. At a 75 percent discount the pass sells for $375 (ages 19-64), $275 (ages 13-18), and $175 (ages 7-12 and 65 and over). For more pass information call 800-MAMMOTH.
