Mammoth Mountain Ski Area announced yesterday that June Mountain would not open for summer and would remain closed for the 2012-2013 winter season.
When lots and lots of snow caused the slopestyle competition at the 2011 Roxy Chicken Jam at Mammoth Mountain to be cancelled, the event organizers got creative. The Roxy Powder Jam was a one day video competition sponsored by GoPro.
“This year’s Chicken Jam was a bit of a surprise for all of us. I don’t think I’ve ever seen weather conditions less ideal for a contest,’’ said Amber Stackhouse, Roxy Snow Team Manager. “Despite the weather, everyone loves riding powder with friends so we rolled with the punches and made use of the record snowfall for our first ever powder jam.”
Kelly Marren won the Roxy Chicken Jam halfpipe last weekend in a contest that was affected by heavy snow and wind. The slopestyle and mascot jams were cancelled due to weather.
Marren won with a run that included a frontside crippler and a Michaelchuck. Newcomers Leslie Glenn and 10-year-old Chloe Kim rounded out the podium.
With no slopestyle competition, the Chicken Jam organizers came up with a way to take advantage of the epic conditions – the Roxy Powder Jam sponsored by GoPro.
Kelly Clark notched her seventh win in a row at the final US Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain. Clark’s halfpipe win setup what should be another epic battle for the overall TTR title at the US Open next weekend.
“This is definitely a big win for me. I came away with the Dew Tour title and the Grand Prix title now. I’m looking forward to next week and seeing if I can’t step it up in the TTR and the Global Open series,” Clark said.
Clark’s winning run was a front 9, back 5, front 7, cab 7 and stalefish. She was followed by Gretchen Bleiler who landed her back 9. Canadian Sarah Conrad rounded out the podium.
Mammoth Mountain opened for the season on Thursday with a dozen runs open. They had six lifts running and access to over 2,000 vertical feet.
Over 2200 people, including many industry and media folk, headed to Mammoth to get their season started. Recent snowstorms and snow making has given Mammoth a base of 12″-36″ with more certainly on its way.
The Arbor guys know a little about product placement as they claim the first chair of the season.
