Mammoth is a riders paradise and the handy work of many of our
local heroes and freestylers.
The mountain has some rad parks set up for you to master your air
and tricks and is also working with June
Mountain to create a secret haven for riding. The Unbound Park
features rails galore, table tops, arcs and trenches, bumps and
rolls, and having more than one terrain park let's everyone spread out.
The smaller park on Chair 4, Rollercoaster, is a cool place to practice
before you start mingling with the Big Boys, and are exposed to
the hoots and hollers of Chair 6 which passes overhead. Look what you're missing up at Main Lodge.
If you like to ride as a racer, than the long runs of St. Anton,
and Fascination and Far West are great off of Chair 1. Carvers will
want to make your own terrain, from the back of Chair 3 and hit
Gremlin's Gulch just below the Cornice. Follow it to Chair 12 and
try the face runs for some freshies that are hardly untouched
the time. Just below Chair Five is Dry Creek where many riders make
their way through the canyon and stop for a breather in the cave.
Want another challenge? Try Scotty's, Wipe-out, Climax, or if you
really want to make your heart race, go over the edge on Dave's
Run. The runs are black and double black diamond and holding an
edge will give you a unbelievable ride with the steeps being so
close you can drag your hand on the wall.
The Unbound Terrain Park continues to lead the standard for all
parks. Pro Olympians have added their feedback to the design and
making of this one, and a place to dance on you board when you free
ride. Our own Tommy Czeschin, Rory Silva, Kevin Jones, Tara Dakides,
and Phil Belanger live and train in Mammoth, making the new branded
"Vans" Unbound a top place to board. Filled with a Superpipe,
gaps, tabletops, spines and a bus to grab some grub.
Call it Superpipe amplitude!
