    with obama in for four more, mammoth will be closing soon,unless they accept foodstamps and government cheese in exchange for lift tickets and lodging

      Ferdinand…..from what I understand,it’s more like getting free lift-tickets and lodging in Mammoth if you bring another bag of dope into the exchange.

    I personally will be looking into things to do at June Lake with my family this winter. I wish the people of the city of Mammoth nothing but the best. But, I am not a very forgiving person and will not support the ski resort until they change their underhanded corporate american ways.

      Good, one less family in my way. Because I’m gonna ski till my legs fall off.

      …and its a town not a city.

      Please. Mammoth Mountain has been begging June for years now to allow a small village, additional accommodations, etc to make it more attractive to visitors. June kept saying no, no, no. They wanted no changes to their precious little village, so guess what? You’re on your own. Good luck.
