If the fires explodes smoke will become moderate at times. Of course this is all from the The Rough fire that has been going for a month now.

Mammoth Mountains Ski Patrol is a tightly knit group that loves to work hard. The number one goal is to save life’s by keeping the mountain as safe as possible. From setting up fencing to avalanche work to helping the injured, the Mammoth Mountain Ski Patrol covers it all. Without their presence on the hill personally I would feel unsafe to be out playing the way we do. We have created a video playlist of the ski patrol videos we found on you tube and the snow study site video Snowman & Alex made a few years back. Check it out today!

For the fall of 2015, Warren Miller Entertainment releases Chasing Shadows, the 66th annual winter sports film. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding as they find that very freedom. Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that keep us searching for more. As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn — we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more.
