Mammoth Mountain will open Friday for skiing and snowboarding
Mammoth Mountain Ski Area has announced plans to open Friday. It's the second-earliest opening
for the resort and almost a month sooner than the scheduled opening date of Nov. 12.
The storm moving through the area dumped at least two feet of snow at Main Lodge and significantly more on the upper slopes.
Free lift tickets are being offered for Friday, with only Broadway Express operating beginning at 8:30 a.m.--Pete Thomas and Kelly Burgess
