8/24/16 Today we celebrate the 101st birthday of the legend of Dave McCoy, the founder and developer of Mammoth Mountain. For that, his vision and his penchant for fun, we thank him! We know he is not well, so we're sending our best wishes to him today. What an amazing life he has led. Here is MMSA's video of his story from four years ago:

Make the Subject 102 today!

There's a short video on Instagram (and I'm sure on other social media).

Done! And I'm wearing my "I :l: Dave" shirt again today in his honor. :)

Here's the tribute I wrote on our FB page along with this cute photo:

Not everyone can say their dreams came true. Thank you for your inspiration and accomplishments all these years and for always supporting skiing/snowboarding and the Town of Mammoth Lakes. Hope your 102nd is as memorable as you are to millions of people. :inlove:

This is probably the video on IG as it was on YouTube and linked on the Visit Mammoth site this morning.
