Rusty Gregory said in a company-wide memo Thursday that he intended to stay as chief operating officer of Mammoth Mountian Ski Area, but would “pass the baton to a new genration of leaders.”
The memo cleared up some of the questions in the wake of Gregory’s surprise announcmenet on Wednesday that he would announce “in the next two-to-three weeks who would run Mammoth Mountain next. Mammoth Mountain will not be run by me.”
The sun is hot, the sky is as blue as the underwing of a Steller’s jay, and it’s raining—raining hard.
The rain comes down in great sheets, dropping from the cloudless blue sky, catching the hot light, casting rainbows against the silver granite rock.
Somewhere up ahead, beyond the crashing river drainage below and the tall granite walls above, comes the sound of thunder.
The ground begins to shake; it feels like walking into the teeth of a storm, except the air is warm and fragrant and the sun is shining through the rainbows.

Having voted against a town ordinance banning skateboarding on Mammoth streets just two years ago, the Town Council was back at it Wednesday, June 5.
The issue re-emerged after council member Jo Bacon read a recent newsletter from the California Joint Powers Insurance Authority (CJPIA), which addressed the potential liability towns have from skateboard accidents on city streets.
