Ski Area has San Francisco in its crosshairs

November 5, 2010

San Francisco, look out. The Mammoth Mountain Ski Area’s marketing team is about to descend on The City in a big-time way in about two weeks, promoting the ski hill and this season’s flights to and from San Francisco International.

Howard Pickett, MMSA’s marketing chief, said final plans have not yet been set, but his team is in the final stages of a series of planned efforts, including some kind of public relations “stunt.”

The team is working with Lyman Public Relations, a Sonoma County (Napa) firm.

Wildlife signage hits obstacles

November 5, 2010

The Town Council Wildlife Committee is moving forward on providing wildlife signage for Mammoth Lakes, but the usual bureaucracies have yet to agree on a plan.

The idea that Mammoth and the surrounding areas would have signage such as Yosemite National Park, is stuck. First, it needs Caltrans approval before signs could be placed on S.R. 203 and Main Street.

Next, it needs U.S. Forest Service approval before signs could be placed along Lake Mary Road and within the Lakes Basin.

Finally, it needs approval by the town for sign placement.

According to Inyo National Forest engineer Olin Beall, the rains soaked and saturated the base that had been laid down prior to paving.
