Off the trail: Soaked

December 14, 2012

The sleet poured down in great, slanting sheets as I walked the narrow, unplowed road. I bent my (hatless) head into the wind and picked up my drenched and booted feet and kept walking. Cars passed me, casting off heavy chunks of rain-soaked snow from their spinning tires, soaking me even more.

It didn’t really matter at that point—it was impossible to get much wetter.

“What a @# $@ idiot,” I mumbled to myself, rain dripping off my face, not one word in three fit to print.

COLOSSAL Village Championships begin at Mammoth Mountain

December 14, 2012

In one of the more enduring traditions that Mammoth has to offer, the Village Championships rank among the top.

For 37 years, the locals in Mammoth have raced each other on the racecourses at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, and it’s no time to stop now.

With good snow cover expected throughout the season, the VCs open Jan. 8 and continue through the Finals on April 9.

The old hands will be at it again, with new faces once more popping into view.

The theme this season is “COLOSSAL,” said Drew Krempel of the ski area’s race department.
