In 1946 experts from the ski industry surveyed California’s Mammoth Mountain and officially declared it a terrible place for skiing. The slopes were too isolated, too windy, too high; they weren’t shaped right, and they had way too much snow. But nowadays, the Mammoth Mountain Ski area is one of the best and most successful ski resorts in the world. Dave McCoy is the man that made that happen.

For fifty years he worked tirelessly to turn Mammoth into what is today, and along the way he revolutionized the entire ski industry. ______________________________________ Watch this video on You Tube A little about Skiing, Mammoth Mountain, and Dave McCoy The post A little about Skiing, Mammoth Mountain, and Dave McCoy appeared first on MammothSnowman.com.
