Biggest weekend of the ski season


Mammoth will have its biggest weekend of the ski season, according to projections released by Mammoth Lakes Tourism on Thursday.

According to the projections, the three-day Presidents Day weekend totals were set at 92 percent of capacity, well ahead of the same weekend of a year ago, when skier visits slipped to 76 percent.

As for the mid-week, the tourism bureau projected Mammoth to be filled to 64 percent capacity, compared to 50 percent a year ago, when sketchy snow depths affected all but the Pacific Northwest ski areas.
