Snowboard Iskola

Last weekend marked the arrival of our inaugural snowfall of the season. As depicted in the initial image captured on Monday, a pair of enthusiasts ventured up the mountain and seized the opportunity to carve some turns on their snowboards. Interestingly, the mountain management had opted to groom the slopes of Cornice Bowl on the preceding week, creating an ideal terrain for riding. The pristine white landscape was a pleasant sight for a brief period, but the majority of the 2-4 inches that had blanketed the area has since melted away.

First Turns!

The photographs were captured by Steve Taylor, known as The Mammoth Snowman. His association with Mammoth Mountain dates back to 1969 when he first took up skiing there. In 1985, he acquired his initial Mammoth season pass and managed to enjoy an impressive 86 days of skiing while residing in La Canada.

Throughout the past three decades, Steve Taylor, or The Mammoth Snowman, has dedicated countless hours to comprehending the intricacies of Mammoth Mountain's weather patterns and snow conditions through direct, hands-on experience.
