Happy 4th of July!
I after returning from Canada I decided to go up to Mammoth Mountain for their last weekend of skiing for the season. I was originally planning to drive up Saturday so that I could ski Sunday and Monday, but I was still tired from my Canada trip so I decided to go to stay in LA on Saturday and then get up early Sunday morning and make the drive up to Mammoth. Sunday morning I was still moving a bit slowly and didn’t get on the road until 5:30. But I still managed to get to Mammoth and hit the slopes by 11:00 for a couple hours of skiing.
It was amazing how much snow had melted since I was here two weeks ago. The bottom of the mountain was pretty much all melted with only small snow paths made by the snowcats to get to the lift. But once you got to the top of the mountain there was quite a bit of snow. There were two chairlifts and the gondola running.

There was lots of snow on top of the mountain, but getting to the bottom was a little trickier
I think this guy made a wrong turn and ran out snow

This guy was having a good time
Lately I’ve been trying to shoot time lapse movies of the stars. So after skiing I decided to find a good location where I could camp out and set my camera up. I ended finding a spot in the mountains above Bishop that gave me a nice view of the Owens Valley, Bishop and the Sierra Nevada mountains.
