Riding a resort in the Northern Hemisphere is not the most typical thing in the month of September. Unless you work for Mammoth Mountain Ski Area who is having one hell of year with snow coverage. Coming off a blanketing of up to 8" of fresh the previous week, the Mammoth Mountain team saw the best opportunity for a private employee party and shred session. Multiple snow cats gave ecstatic riders lap after lap on the corduroy lined Saddle Bowl and St. Anton, which was made up of leftover snow from last season and our recent storm. The stoke was high as many people added another notch onto their tally for full year of riding every single month in-resort. Butters, turns, carves, side-hits and all the other usual early season antics were a plenty to get everyone jonesing for another season to commence November 9th. Top it all off with a taco and beer party at McCoy Station, and you have one righteous day to be a Mammoth employee and shredder.
