Nice pics, Snowy; there still is quite a bit of snow up there!

Out of curiousity, did you happen to catch what vehicle the coyotes were driving as they were headed down to the condo? Didn't see one in the pics, but my guess is a 4WD Hybrid!

On a side note, nice to see the "Dave's Run" sign.

Side-side note; first pic on page 7, SnowDude is looking a little 90's Bono'ish, I would have to say! :nod:

Mammoth is losing snow fast. That Fri I held onto the “Dave’s Run” sign while strapping my board on. By Sun, it had a different feel, and I realized I was having to reach higher for “Dave”, and the one below was pointing at a different angle. For the last 2 weeks the daily report said 4 - 6’ of snow, and this week it said 3.5 - 5.5’. The bottom sign was too high for me to lean on this past weekend.

LOL! I guess I missing a word can change the meaning to what I’m saying! Seems to happen a lot with me lately! :retard:

That’s a different Dave, but I did find a wood carved “Dave Ebben” sign in the trees which I can’t post just yet. We stop by there each trip to Mammoth.

I think SnowDude has more of “the Edge” look :)

TGR Maggots were at Mammoth Mountain. Saw old friends and met a few new people. Fun times!

started the day with a great meal! Since the slopes are bulletproof in the morning, we waited for it to soften up a little.

MiT,
People are feeding those coyotes. :( I squatted low to get a photo, and he walked right up to me. And he posed for me :D He looks like the same one from the weekend before. Cars kept having to stop cuz he stood in the street and wouldn’t move. One of these days someone is not going to see him. :(

This is our last day on the slopes, and no crowds! Ran into a few friends. Nice way to end the season! (for us)

Great views from the top, and still a good ride!
