This video game-inspired special effectstravaganza might seem crazy, but it’s… OK, yes, it’s crazy!
But not THAT crazy.
Many ski resorts really are built on active volcanoes. In fact, geologists have been worrying for years that Mammoth Mountain might blow its top any minute, melting the world class superpipe (NO!) and swamping the quaint city center in rolling waves of killer magma. Property owners and season ticket holders can only cross their fingers, which we can tell you from personal experience is much easier to do in mittens than gloves.
So until the mountain starts to belch flaming rocks into the sky (and maybe even after that), we recommend you keep riding Mammoth.
Just keep riding.
