Sports took center stage in 2012

December 30, 2012

 

It seemed like every time a sports fan turned around, there was something to catch his or her attention.

Off the trail- Winter Solstice

December 21, 2012

 

The morning sky has not yet begun to lighten as the truck bounces over the white, moonlit ground, tires sinking nearly to the rim in deep, snowy ruts.

To the west, Laurel Mountain and Mt. Morrison are limned in light, stars brilliant, waiting.

Tomorrow, when the sun rises, the days will begin to lengthen, one minute more every morning, one minute more every evening, every day until the Summer Solstice in June when the cycle reverses.

But not today.

Mammoth Mountain High Altitude Training Center a reality at last

December 21, 2012

 

‘Slopeside Center’ revamped; hundreds of athletes here

Dave McCoy’s vision of a high-altitude training center at Mammoth Mountain—a dream that has passed through generations of racers and coaches—will come to fruition Thursday afternoon (Dec. 27).

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.
