Summer time in Mammoth is awesome. Just about everyday dawns fine and crisp with things warming up nicely during the day. Whilst it can get pretty hot in the sun a lot of the time the many trees provide some refreshing shade. However, coming from NZ where rain is never too far away I’d have to admit to getting excited about a little bit of rain and the odd thunderstorm.
The Mountain was open for skiing right until the 5th of July and on the same day you could ski, mountain bike, fish and play golf, not too shabby aye. There is also a huge array of festivals during the summer to make Mammoth a great holiday stop when the snow has melted away until next season.
Unfortunately, I left summer and my beautiful wife behind to head back to Mount Hutt, New Zealand to finish some ski exams. More posts about that and the southern snow coming soon.
