Snow Nymph's photos from Mammoth Mtn (2005-2006)

Postby Snow Nymph » Tue Nov 15, 2005 3:07 am

November 12-13, 2005 Opening weekend

Photos: http://community.webshots.com/album/504465089JmYIjc


Running over rocks with my board is like nails on a black board. The top was good, but a lot of traversing for me to get in and out on a board. Next time (2 wks) I'm using my really old rock board. The Witchcraft can be fixed.

A lot of partying on this trip . . . Champagne toast at 11am (I missed it), free hotdogs at 2pm (haven't had hotdogs in years, and it was yummy!), free beer, wine and h'orsdevours from 4-6 (good), then a BBQ at Snowman's place (great party!)

No snow in the forecast, so I'm hiking next weekend.

Better to wait for more snow. Look at Joey-Bag-O-Donuts skis. A lot of skis/boards I saw looked like that. Mine is going in the shop, and I'll use my really old board until coverage is better. And let me know when you're in Mammoth so we can hook up!

After opening weekend, we waited a month for more coverage on the mountain and it was worth it! No lines, and decent riding. A great weekend to be at Mammoth Mountain!

Great riding on windblown on Saturday, broke the camera LCD screen when I fell, dinner with Doug395, party at Asandygal and Skiers, then rode powder all day Sunday! Great weekend! (except the camera)

I like those frosty Sunday shots. After 3 days of skiing and digging my car out I was too pooped for powder on Sunday. How was your drive home, was there still snow on the road in Big Pine.

Poured all night here, started snowing ~6am. Snowing on the slopes, lifts closed. We waited over an hour for chair 16 to open, and left when they told us it wasn't going to happen. Shortly after (noon), chair 8 closed. A tree by chair 8 was blown over, so if the wind can blow a tree over . . . .

Photos from Mono Lake on Sat, Dec 24th.

The road to South Crater was closed, so I went to Mono Lake for photos. Used two cameras that were 'not working right', so its all 'point & shoot' and see what comes out.

We're baaack!

No internet access because of the storms in Mammoth, so I have some catching up.

Plan was to drive home Monday night (Jan 2nd), but because of road closures (hwy 203 and 395) I called in "sick". My boss left as the storm started Saturday, so he knew how bad it was. 90" in 48 hrs! Storm total was 120"! He said it was a slow week, so I called back and took another day off. So my original 10 day vacation turned into 12, then 14 days!!! :D :D :D

It was raining on Friday (Dec 30) so we used that day to catch up on things like laundry, painting and uploading pics.

Saturday (Dec 31) we waited to get on the lifts, but it was too windy and after two trees got blown down, they said they weren't opening. Great New Years Party!
