Mammoth Lakes

Last Updated: 2011-02-08 ~4PM

Thank you all for making last year's trip memorable.

This year’s annual Mammoth Lakes, California snowboarding and exploration trip is officially set for Feb 11-13th, 2011.   As of right now we have a good size group attending this year. Cross your fingers, and hope a good storm hits Mammoth before we arrive. The cost for food and lodging last year was roughly $100 per person for the entire weekend.  This excludes lift tickets, your personal spending, gas and vehicle rentals. For those who went last year, hopefully you still remember the Mammoth West resort because we’re staying at the same resort.  For those who are new this year, you can get an idea of what we the previous years: http://joeofthewild.com/mammoth/Mammoth/Info.html.  Below are more info, so please read them. Schedules are not set in stone–as usual we’re flexible. If you have questions, please call/text message Joseph (858) 652-9897.  Leave a voicemail if I do not pick up. I do not pick up blocked numbers.
