Mammothâ€™s newest venue in the art world couldnâ€™t be in a more unusual â€“ or enticing â€“ spot.
On Saturday, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area will open an â€śArt Parkâ€ť in a new terrain park above Canyon Lodge.
The new terrain park seeks to introduce the worlds of skiing and snowboarding to the world of street art.
â€śIâ€™m really stoked,â€ť said ski area spokesman Dan Hansen. â€śIâ€™ve never seen any other mountain do this kind of thing. Itâ€™s a cool way to combine art and snowboarding and skiing.
â€śThe two cultures kind of go together. With the art on snowboards and skis, theyâ€™re interconnected.â€ť
