Fantasizing about carving through powdery snow and catching air on your badass new pair of skis? Starting tomorrow, quit dreaming and hop on a United Airlines flight straight to Mammoth Mountain, because the airline is now offering non-stop service to the ski resort starting at a mere $188, all the way until April 24th, 2011!
Starting today, Horizon Air will begin its annual winter service to snowy Mammoth Mountain, offering daily flights from Los Angeles, Portland, San Jose, Reno and Seattle. Mammoth Mountain, one of California's ski resort gems, has already reaped the benefits of a winter wonderland with a base of five to eight feet--and even more on the way. The flights mark the beginning of regular air service to Mammoth throughout the snow season.
If you find yourself in the Mammoth area this weekend, don't hesitate to drop by the fifth annual Roxy Chicken Jam, a free three-day fest chock full of fun and top-notch snowboarding. The event will see some of the world's greatest women competitors from more than 10 countries take to the slopes for a purse of $50,000. Additionally, there will be a Mascot Superpipe contest for $6,000.
