    Anyone recall what a 3, 4 or 5 day day ticket costs at Mammy last season. Asking for a friend who plans to visit but likely wonít bother getting a pass.

    Right now it looks like you can get a 4 pack of day tickets for $400.

    Awesome. Thanks. Did not see those on the summer site.

    BAF is 25% off ticket window price and that has to be more than $130 mid winter these days. $100 per day and walk right onto a lift has got to be the better deal.

    I wonder if a 4 out of 5 day ticket would be less expensive.

    I don't think there is any way to get the cost under $100/day from what I remember looking at prices last season. If your friend is going to ski even 6 or 7 days (or at any other Ikon resorts) it might just be worth getting the Ikon. I know Mammoth and Squaw are both $200+ some peak days over the winter, but never saw either below $130.

    ^^^ yeah I suggested an ikon to them. They are considering it. Their lives are in flux, so they are not sure how much they will ski. But that got me thinking. They will be in Redondo this winter. I should let them know about Snow Summit as a an option as well.

    Myself it would be a no brainer but they are more casual skiers.

    Iíve never been to SS. So not sure if it the terrain or people.

    My friends are from Maine, but just sold their seasonal business (campground, which is real estate) and bought a home in Redondo (where they lived for a few years before having kids). They are casual skiers, so really donít need the terrain of Mammoth. They are happy cruising groomers, which seems like what SS has to offer.

    OTOH, they are basically retired and could easily head up to Mammoth for a Mon- Wed stint. And MM also has some great groomer terrain.

    Yep, I roll up Sunday afternoon and stay through Thursday normally. Hopefully the quanza hut opens this winter so I can score some cheap powder day lodging when I ski June on a weekend.

    Mammoth 11'053'. Get high not covid 20/21

    We've been to Snow Summit several times. It's not Mammoth, far from it, but it's good for half a day of fun when you have other things going on on a weekend but you still want to get some skiing in.

    If they stay on the eastern side (the side with only blues and blacks) they'll avoid a large chunk of the annoying crowd (I don't mind beginners at all, I'm happy that they're there. I do mind fast, out of control people).

    They also have night skiing.

    ^^^^thats what I figured. 2 hours from their home. With a pass they could easily go up for a morning session and be home for an evening surf. Or head up mid day and stick around for the evening. And not pay for any lodging.

    We actually got about 5 days at Summit this year.

    I like it for the early season. Drive up, ski about 12-15 groomers in an afternoon, and head home. It's a nice way to break in the boots, and just to keep sharp on non-Mammoth weekends.

    We have our schedules set up so that every other Friday is off. Even on the weekends where we don't have Friday off we can usually take off around 11 am if we structure work properly and maybe get a bit done on over the weekend. I like doing that, because Friday afternoon is really not all that bad (crowd wise) for the most part. You can just head up, lap some groomers, and head back. You don't end up getting bored.

    After the snow came to Mammoth and Baldy we didn't hit Summit again. But it was great to get about 5-6 warmup days early in the year.

    In a big snow year some decent stuff can fill-in. It's not Mammoth obviously, or even Baldy, but I was pleasantly surprised in the 18/19 winter.

    Ott,

    If Baldy has a big year I would suggest your friends check that out. Having said that, it is really very hit or miss there, and the groomers are limited. Also, the off-piste stuff, while lots of fun, is pretty rocky. Last year was an absolute blast there, but the guys at Phil's ski shop (I absolutely love that place) were definitely put to work.

    What is the base Ikon at right now? Honestly, with Summit right there and Mammoth available for mid-week jaunts your friends should seriously consider it. Otherwise I don't know how you get down to 100 a day.

    They could also check out Mt. High if they just want to cruise. But even with BAF tickets I don't think Mammoth would make sense more than one weekend without the Ikon pass.

    They actually sell a ton of base Ikon passes to people down south who probably get two Mammoth weekends and 6-10 Summit/Bear days. At that rate it is actually quite a good buy.

    I heard that some of the local shops have started to get winter gear in so I was curious, who is/are the best bootfitter and ski tech in town?

    If your up in Mammoth, Cort at Footloose did a good job for me previously, as did a guy at Kittridge Sports.

    I got new liners this past March, and Nick at Surefoot did a great job. Todd is also very good.

    I've been taking some notes of good bootfitters mentioned previously in this thread:
    Kevin ("the older one if there are still two Kevins") at Footloose. Edit: and Cort, as mentioned by liv2ski.
    Preston at Kittredge.

    Nice! We'll try to have our first laps in November (with some older, scratched skis).

    Cool videos! It was a fun season, even if it didn't last through the 4th of July, like other years.

    Opening day has been moved to a week from tomorrow! We are planning on being there for our first laps on November 19, but now we may be there even earlier.

    So, whoever takes the first laps this season starts a new thread? I like the Tahoe thread's first post with useful information like important phone numbers, bootfitter and shop recommendations.

    Stoked to see this. Potentially moving to WA come the new year, so I've been hoping to get back to Mammoth at least once before I go. Guess I'll pretty much have all of Nov and Dec to get my Eastern Sierra fix.

    Looks like Team Comish will be there Friday. Likely not right at opening, but psyched to make some turns!

    For bootfitting, Corty at Footloose has been retired for a bit.
    He who has the most fun wins!
