  • Kimmy Fasani - Rider of the Year

    Dec 20, 2016



    As part of the opening weekend festivities, Mammoth Mountain joined up with Absinthe Films to premiere their new movie Forever/After. Absinthe has been at the top of the game for years and their new installment had some of the heaviest snowboarding to date. But there was one rider that stood out and her name was coming up in random conversations throughout the weekend.

    “Did you see Kimmy’s part last night?”
    “Oh yeah, her part was nuts!”
    “Kimmy had the video part of the decade dude….”

    Mammoth Mountainteam rider, Kimmy Fasani, spent much of last winter and spring filming on the massive mountains in Alaska. Known for its deathly exposure, 2,000 ft. blind rollovers, gargantuan cliffs, slough the size of a wave at Waimea Bay and avalanches the size of small cities were all facets that she delt with while shredding these mountains, not to mention the sketchy helicopter landings, hiking along razor sharp ridges and weeks of down time awaiting blue skies. Kimmy rode those mountains with strength, confidence and an innate eye for the aesthetically beautiful. She didn’t shy away from hitting massive features and threw in some tech tricks in hairball conditions. Simply put, her video part showcases some incredible snowboarding.

    Last week Transworld Snowboarding hosted its annual Rider of the Year party in Denver. With the entire industry looking on, Kimmy Fasani won Women’s Rider of the Year. While it’s not fair to say her win was expected, it says something when the entire audience nodded in agreement and jumped to their feet in applause after Spencer O’ Brien announced her name.

    Kimmy’s passion for snowboarding, infectious positive attitude, advocacy for our environment, unstoppable work ethic and leadership for women’s sport makes her an incredible asset to have on our team of Mammoth athletes. Congratulations Kimmy on an amazing year.

  • Unbound Express

    Dec 03, 2016

    Chair 6v2

    Chair 6 changed the game of freestyle skiing and snowboarding and as part of the 20th Anniversary of Unbound we’d like to pay it the respect it deserves. What makes the newly named Unbound Express so special?

    1) Location, location, location. Not hidden off on some obscure area of the mountain, our original park chair is directly in front of Main Lodge for all the world to see.

    2) Main Park. It’s right underneath the lift so you can watch all the action as it’s going down. You can watch Shaun White boosting in the pipe, Brandon Davis triple corking bottom jump or Scott Blum gapping the large flat-down at the top of the park, all from the comfort of the chair lift.

    3) Speed. At just a hair over 2 ½ minutes the Unbound Express gets you to the top of Main Park and Forest Trail in a hurry. No messing around here, if you want to hot lap, this is the spot.

    Here’s to you Unbound Express, enjoy the new paint job!

  • Weekender w/ Halldor

    Dec 02, 2016




    Halldor Helgason is one talented and creative snowboarder. At Superpark 20 he thought it'd be fun to do a shifty over the massive 90'+ Mammoth Unbound jump. This is about as technical of a straight air as you could ever imagine. 


  • Early Season

    After a summer and early fall of heated anticipation it’s time to get back on snow. Time to get those legs back under you.  A time to break in new boots and re-introduce your feet to the constraints of bindings. Thank god we have chair 6. A two minute and forty second ride up puts you on top of two glorious, feature laden parks. Simply put, there’s no better early season shredding experience in the world*. With 8 jibs and 2 small jumps in Forest Trail and 6 jibs and a medium size jump in Main Park the Unbound parks are off to a crackling start this season.

    *Having just secured 1st place in both the Newschoolers and TWSnowboarding Park Polls it’s not much of a stretch to claim…

    Some of the world's best snowboarders descended on Mammoth Mountain this spring for the 20th Anniversary of Snowboarder Magazine's Superpark event.

    Don't forget, Mammoth's lifts are still turning with plenty of snow at Main Lodge including loads of fun features at the Unbound Main Park and Forest Trail.

    We also have a great Memorial Day Weekend planned, including lodging specials and our annual ski, bike, golf challenge, so be sure book your next trip to Mammoth today.
