Just checking in to wish everyone a good closing day and a great summer season.

Yup, I know it's been summer for months. Mammoth has certainly demonstrated its uniqueness once again. Thanks for moving those last molecules of snow around so the true diehards could enjoy one final weekend. I loved being able to tell people that I just skied in late July, and that there is still skiing going on at Mammoth.

Hoping next season is just as good, maybe better.

Big turnout for closing day which is causing some challenges with the narrow entrance to Cornice and the wrod at the bottom of 3. Everyone is having a blast though.

Sorry I didn't see your post until I got back to the house. I did a few laps on 3 then headed up to the top of 23 just before noon. Waited around but nothing was really going on so I headed down about 10 after. Sorry I missed you.

Viewing photos from friends that skied the final day today, the after party was on the sundeck of Steeps Bar at McCoy...looked like fun!

If anyone has a spare swag ball cap that were given away today, I'd like to get one! :*

Fun day. Snow held up well. Saw a number of boarders poaching Climax. One guy was butt (buck) naked.

This is why I made my August ski day Thursday: http://www.firsttracksonline.com/boards ... =3&t=12457

I'm really shocked they closed Climax. Both lines were fairly clean Thursday. The choke at the bottom of the Drop Outs was bony though. I skied there 4x, didn't figure out the right place to step down 10 feet or so to avoid rocks until my 3rd time through. Were people skiing the Drop Outs on the weekend?

We stayed through Friday, went to Bluesapalooza Thursday and Friday night, got rained on a bit late Thursday and early Friday. Daytime Friday (overcast all day) we hiked to Devil's Postpile and Minaret Falls. I had never been to Minaret Falls before and I was quite impressed.

Yes I saw several people doing it. Had to step through about 10 feet of dirt or just ski it like some did.
