Ski until August this Year at Mammoth Mountain

Abundant snowpack leads ski resort to stay open well into the summer.

No need to mourn the end of ski season this year--not at Mammoth Mountain, anyway, which announced in late May it will remain operational into August. This is only the second time ever the resort has extended its season so late (the other was in 1995). Lower-elevation slopes at the resort are closing, but snowpack remains high in the upper reaches.
