Good news from Skip Harvey, owner of the Base Camp CafĂ© and town councilman, who says two cancerous tumors in his throat have â€śshrunk 50 percent.â€ť He says he is taking one FDA-approved drug and another â€śhighly experimentalâ€ť drug to control the cancer. â€¦
Mammoth Mountain sailed through the holidays just fine, according to ski area CEO Rusty Gregory.
In a carefully-worded memorandum to employees, dated Jan. 1, Gregory said this holiday period the ski area â€ścompleted its most successful and New Year holiday period in my 34 years on the mountain.â€ť
Um, well, sort of.
Gregory said in an interview this week that the ski areaâ€™s â€śsuccessâ€ť is in context with other dry holiday periods in the ski areaâ€™s historyâ€”not an all-inclusive, year-by-year breakdown.
